Watertown High School's homecoming royalty reigned over festivities last week through the traditional football game that capped the celebration.
Before the parade Friday, Champion of Arrows Kolby Lacher shared his thoughts about his time at Watertown High School.
“The teachers, the community of students and the staff have helped me get together with different people. They helped me be friends with people I may never have otherwise,” he said.
This year’s Guardian of Gold, Jaida Young, is proud of the opportunity to help other students find success.
“I am proud to be a part of Arrow Nation,” said Young. “To be a leader and a teacher for my underclassman.”
To those students who are just settling into high school, Protector of Purple J.J. Hernandez said, “Be yourself. Keep doing what you love doing, and take your time. It is the little rewards that make life. You will see that in your hard work.”
Aberdeen Central won Friday's football game against the Arrows 17-0.
