Holmes Community College recently hosted its annual Homecoming celebration on the Goodman Campus.
Because of COVID-19, the college did not hold a day full of activities as the school traditionally does, but the Homecoming Court was recognized.
Mikayla Williams of Yazoo City, daughter of Bernitta Jones and Darion Williams, was crowned 2020 Homecoming Queen at halftime. Goodman Campus Vice President Andy Wood crowned the queen, Alumni Association President Dr. James Young presented her robe and Ridgeland Campus Vice President Dr. Don Burnham presented her flowers. Prior to the Homecoming Court Presentation, the Holmes Marching Band, directed by Jeffrey Brown and Terry Miller, performed on the field.
Prior to kickoff, the Holmes Marching Band performed the national anthem, the cheerleaders performed and the Alumni of the Year were recognized on the field. The Alumni of the Year recipients were also presented with plaques prior to the football game.
