Capacity Crowd Enjoys Halftime Festivities and Warrior Victory 
Lakehill celebrated its 36th Homecoming last weekend with activities and events for students, alumni, and the community. One of the most anticipated events is the presentation of the Homecoming Court, and the crowning of the Homecoming Queen. The Homecoming Court is nominated by the Varsity Football team and the Queen is elected by the entire High School.

Queen and CourtSenior Nominees for Homecoming Queen were Alina Rich, escorted by Morgan Lineberry; Molly Haynes, escorted by Harrison Boyd; Rachael Mozelewski, escorted by Brennan Cowart; and Imani Heard, escorted by David White. Members of the Homecoming Court included freshman Jordan Jacobson, escorted by Alex Alfonso; sophomore Kara Gamboa, escorted by Charles Burch; and junior Kiley Trent, escorted by Mac Kelly.

Alma MaterThe Homecoming Court was introduced during a spirited pep rally on Friday afternoon in the Lakehill Gym. Later that day, the Middle School Football team crushed Tyler Street Christian Academy, followed by a Homecoming victory for the Varsity Warriors against the Tyler Street Crusaders. A standing-room-only crowd cheered on the Warriors.

The Homecoming Court was presented and the Homecoming Queen crowned at halftime. Senior Imani Heard was crowned Queen. Presenting the crown was 2007 Homecoming Queen, Carrie Patterson.  Carrie, a freshman at TCU, was escorted by Lakehill Headmaster Roger L. Perry.

Homecoming DanceThe final celebration of Homecoming weekend was a dance hosted by the Student Council on Saturday night. Upper School students and their guests enjoyed the Rock Star themed event.

Class of 1983 Celebrates 25 Year Reunion
AlumniLakehill's Homecoming Celebration brought many former students back to campus. Alumni tours were offered at 2:00pm on Friday, and an Alumni Dinner was held before the game on Friday night. Reid Parker, Director of Development and Alumni Relations, coordinated the event. "It was great seeing all the alumni back on campus. The participation was fantastic and we look forward to making this event bigger every year," explained Parker. The Class of 1983 returned to campus for their 25 year reunion. Class of 1983 graduate, Melanie Chapman Sherman, who now resides with her husband and children in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, spent the weekend reconnecting with Lakehill friends. "Lakehill was such an important part of my life, and I love being able to reconnect with the people who made the experience so special. It is wonderful that so many of us could attend the reunion," said Sherman.
Walkers Unite for Health and Community
Lily TurnerMillions of walkers from more than 40 countries around the world have joined together to participate in International Walk to School Month, the entire month of October dedicated to walking to school. This worldwide event was created to promote the benefits of walking and to create communities that are safe places for families to walk together. On Wednesday, many families laced up their walking shoes and celebrated the designated Walk to School Day in the United States. Lily Turner, a fourth grader, enjoyed the beautiful Alexander Kidsweather as she walked to school with her dog Disco. Heidi Alexander and her children Connor, second grade, and Paige, fifth grade, usually ride their bikes to school. "Walking was a nice change of pace," said Alexander. "With so many cars heading to work and school in the morning, it is difficult to talk when we are on bicycles."  Many families responded that walking to school was a great opportunity to do something different and spend time together.
