Last year Summerville High School reveled in its national identification as “Americas Best Small Town High School.” This year Homecoming 2012 celebrates a “Wave of Dreams for the Future.” Summerville High students comprised of the Homecoming court candidates, student council members, cheerleaders and football players kicked off the week long festivities Sunday, Oct 14, 2012 by “Bringing Homecoming Home.” Our vision was to share our history and enthusiasm with residents of the Presbyterian Home in Summerville in an effort to unify our community. We recognize and appreciate our senior generation and enthusiastically embrace the lessons and memories of Homecomings past. Whether our honorary senior court were graduates of Macedonia, Berkeley or the upstate they were Green Wave fans for the day! Homecoming candidates pinned corsages, sang the alma mater, cheered the wave and bonded with residents with good old fashioned conversation that would have left “Miss Manners” herself in awe. As a member of a community devastated by Katrina and ridden with cities that no longer exist and homecoming that can never occur, Homecoming has become much more poignant for me. We often find ourselves too busy to relish in our hometown fun. So relax, come watch the parade, attend the bonfire and don’t miss the game! Summerville High School invites you, no matter who your alma mater, to join our Homecoming 2012, Wave of Dreams!
