Thanks for showing up and making Homecoming 2017 such a joyous occasion. Your love and support were clearly demonstrated in your presence, and we couldn’t have enjoyed such a fun and endearing celebration without you. We were honored to see all our alumni, parents, students, volunteers, faculty and staff at Kings Stadium. It was a thrill-filled week in the Kingdom right up through Friday’s big game. The Kings had a blast displaying their school spirit as they dressed as Super Heroes, nerds and folks from the 60’s; competed in watermelon-eating contests, Pie-in-the-Face contests and a host of other hilarious activities.
Just when it appeared our offensive and defensive lines had been completely shut down Friday night, the Kings managed to pull off two gloriously unexpected touchdowns. Quarterback Tyreke Thompson recovered a fumble and sprinted 47 yards to the goal line for a touchdown. Wide Receiver Caleb Coleman caught a beautiful pass and scrambled loose for a 35-yard haul for the Kings’ second touchdown as our line stepped it up with blocks. Great job to our football team and Coaches Shaun Gaines and Calvin Covington for holding it down during this tough season of rebuilding.
A choreographed performance by our cheering squad kept the tempo bouncy for fans during halftime. Our Principal Mrs. Cheryl Riley presented the Alumni Award of Excellence to Mrs. Sanchia Chapman, VCC Operations Manager. The award states: “In recognition of your outstanding commitment, leadership and dedication to VCCS. Thank you for your tireless effort and for going above and beyond in promoting and serving the VCCS family.”
