As the season of fall arrives, the talk in the halls of Walker High School is centered around one event: Homecoming Week. Homecoming week is a week of tradition for WHS. It is a celebration of our football team and its success, but more importantly it is a celebration of our black and gold pride. This is the main event that rallies the students and faculty together to show off our abundance of school spirit. Homecoming week is filled with traditions from the last six decades that exhibit our love for Walker High School. Some of these include dress up days, homecoming queen campaigns, class float building, the homecoming pep rally and game, and of course the infamous parade through downtown.
Walker High school traditions have been carried through the decades to make Homecoming one of the most exciting weeks of the year. These traditions are still alive today. This year Homecoming week will be filled with dress up days, float building, the crowning of a new queen, a pep rally, the parade through downtown, the football game, and the celebration dance, which all come together to create our Viking Pride.
