GHS coronation set for Saturday
It’s spirit week at Gothenburg High School as students gear up for coronation festivities Saturday night.
The Minden Whippets are the Swedes’ basketball opponent Saturday so a week of activities has been planned around the contest.
On Monday, students were asked to fake an injury to show the Whippets what they’d look like after the game and Tuesday were supposed to find their inner child and dress like a little kid.
Dressing as a mime and whispering all day was encouraged Wednesday (today) so students could save their voices for game day.
Thursday, students will dress in multiplicity, with big groups dressing the same, to scare Minden with numbers.
Neon and glitter are the dress of the day Friday so the Swedes can outshine the Whippets.
During a pep rally Friday, candidates for coronation king and queen were announced. They are seniors Peyton Maline, Leah Schwanz and Kelsey Wahlgren and Korey Ahlenstorf, Brett Dockweiler and Bryce Eggleston.
Royalty will be crowned during a coronation ceremony Saturday after the basketball game.
Each high school grade also elected representatives for the coronation ceremony. They are freshmen Alayna Collins and Jacob Clark, sophomores Kayla Trevino and Blake Ristine and juniors Morgan Kowalewski and Aaron Collins.
A dance, after the crowning ceremony, will be in the Dudley Elementary gym from 9:30 to 12:30 p.m. Doors close at 10 p.m.
Students are asked to sign up out-of-town dates by Thursday.
Seniors wishing to be in the ceremony lineup are asked to provide information in the office by 3 p.m. Thursday.
