On Friday, November 3, 2017 Arthur L. Johnson hosted the annual Homecoming ceremony with a change of location from Johnson’s lower gym to the football field at halftime of the Johnson vs. Governor Livingston football game.
The nominees made an extravagant entrance and were driven around the track on the back of a Clark police truck with an open back in order for all of their friends, family, and fans to see them dressed as school royalty. After the ride, the female nominees were escorted off the truck by their prince for the night, and walked to the center of the football field.
The candidates later formed a line, with females on one half, and the males completing the other half, all eager to learn who would claim the title of king and queen.
Moments later, expressions of excitement and glee erupted throughout the crowd once learning the 2017 Homecoming king and queen were Gabriella Smith, and George Visconti.
All the girls received flowers, and circled in a group hug with the queen, Gabby, showing the crowd the gratitude and happiness they gained from the night itself.
Ms. Wronski and Mr. Raguseo, Class of 2018 advisors, moved Homecoming to the football game to improve visibility of the event. “I was very pleased with the outcome,” said Ms. Wronski.
