LHU-KCSD homecoming collaboration a great idea!

How wonderful that Lock Haven University, Central Mountain High School and Bucktail Area High School are joining to collaborate on homecoming festivities!

We think it’s a first.

Is it?

Leaders of the university and Keystone Central School District are partnering to hold a homecoming parade on Main Street in downtown Lock Haven.

The parade will step off beginning about 6 p.m. tomorrow, Thursday, Sept. 26.

The three entities have come together for a homecoming collaboration.

All sports, clubs and other extra curricular activities from the schools are encouraged to participate in the parade, as many alumni will be in attendance.

After the parade is over, a pep rally will take place in the gymnasium of the old Lock Haven High School building for Central Mountain and Bucktail Area. The rally will include games, food, music and company as they celebrate what homecoming means to them.

LHU President Dr. Robert Pignatello and KCSD Superintendent Jacquelyn Martin are leading the effort … and will lead the parade together.

The parade will start on Henderson Street and go through Main Street and continue to Nanobites at East Campus. KCSD will end there and hold a pep rally and LHU participants will continue on to meet up to start their golf cart parade.

The LHU band, cheerleaders, two trolleys, LHU police truck, LHU Athletics van and a float will be in the downtown parade.

Congratulations on the partnership.

We encourage alumni and residents alike to attend the parade.

This event is a way to evoke pride … pride in our schools, our university and our communities.

We hope there’s a tremendous showing, great weather and The Express will be there to extensively cover the parade and rally!

Let’s hope this is the first of many such celebrations!
