Homecoming draws in community

Randolph-Henry High School’s Homecoming festivities took place last weekend, as a parade took place Friday afternoon. A Statesmen game against the Cumberland High School Dukes took place later that evening and led to a 42-6 victory for the school.

The parade was filled with performances by the Charlotte County Public School marching bands, cheerleading squads and more. Bystanders stood in awe as each creative float came by, and children’s stood anxiously on the sidewalk waiting for candy to by thrown in their direction.

Many former students and residents of the county returned to Charlotte Court House to greet old friends and tell tales of how their lives have changed since graduating Randolph-Henry.
