More than 50 students representing dozens of student organizations partook in Dr. Phillips’ Homecoming Oct. 3, at Bill Spoone Stadium. Members of each school group nominated princes and princesses to ride in the pre-game parade. These participants and members of the Homecoming Court received convertible rides around the track of the stadium in front of the crowd. At halftime, the members of the court strode along the track in tandem, before lining by sex on each side of the school mascots. The mascots helped the king and queen celebrate as they received their crowns. Senior defensive end Derrick Herron and senior Alexandria Lewis were the king and queen. The Panthers beat the Boone Braves 34-21.
