This year’s homecoming court nominees participated in the Salisbury parade last Friday evening. The parade began at HST at 5:00pm and traveled to the high school at around 6:30pm. Along the route the homecoming court nominees threw candy to the onlookers. The female nominees include: Sarah Bobeck, Katie Rutt, Melinda Rivera, Riley Peters, and Rylee Donaldson. The male nominees include: Jack Frankenfield, Jacob Kamp, Brendan Miller, Delano McKenzie, and Justin Burkhardt. Due to conflict with scheduling for the football game, Jack, Jacob, and Delano will not be participating in the parade. We sat down with Sarah Bobeck, then nominee, to ask questions leading up to the parade, as well as a follow up interview after all of the homecoming festivities. We also sat down with Justin Burkhardt for the same process.
