Lufkin High School hosting first homecoming dance in 15 years

Posted: Updated:

Tuesday morning the student council at Lufkin High School discussed fundraisers, blood drives and for the first time in 15 years a homecoming dance.

"We only have prom to look forward to and so it's something a little bit more to give them," said Flora Avant, Junior class Vice President.

On October 18th the high school cafeteria will be the venue for the dance after the homecoming game.

Junior class Vice President Flora Avant says a team of student ambassadors are working with Superintendent Dr. Goffney and the administration on promoting school spirit and creating exciting activities for the student body.

"We got to talking about how to bring more spirit to rebrand Lufkin and I think this is a great start," said Avant.

"It's important in Lufkin to always have school spirit especially on Friday night it's really important and I think the homecoming dance will bring that back," said Jahmia Durham, Senior class Student Body President

Since this is the first homecoming dance in 15 years the students went with the theme Flashback Friday.

"It's like a flashback to the old days, like our parents got to have fun dances and our brothers and sister got to do all that because some of those privileges had been taken away from us so we're really excited about having it come back," said Durham.

Activities Director Patricia White says after the game students can head over to the cafeteria for the homecoming dance but says the event is strictly for Lufkin students.

"We would like to take baby steps since this is our first dance in 15 years and we want to give the opportunity for our students," said White.

 The Lufkin ambassadors say they hope to capture the panther pride that fills Abe Martin Stadium each and every game day and create a lasting legacy of school spirit.

To attend the dance students must have an I.D. and pre-purchased tickets.

The tickets are $5 five and can be purchased from student council officers.  The dance is from 10:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. following the homecoming game October 18th.
