Friday was a big day in celebration of 2004 Homecoming at Moffat County High School. A pep rally kicked off the day's events. The mood was somewhat subdued until the Student Council's Kiss a Pig contest winner was named.
Then things got a little more exciting.
For weeks, collection jars with the names of coaches on the outside sat in the office. The coach whose jar had the most money had to kiss a pig in front of the student body during the pep rally.
Football coach Kip Hafey won the honors of kissing the pig with his jar collecting $95.05. The coach seemed visibly grossed out by the action, kissed too quickly and was required to do it again.
As a twist, the girls volleyball coach, Becky Howlett, was asked to kiss the pig for collecting the least amount of money.
Howlett agreed, but not until she coated her lips several times with chapstick.
The proceeds from the contest go to the student council.
Local media helped out with the rally. Joshua Flemming from KRAI introduced the homecoming royalty and Daily Press sportswriter David Pressgrove taught the crowd a new cheer.
Senior Kaylee Perry was announced as the 2004 Homecoming queen. Stetson Otero was named king. The senior attendants are Stephanie Hafey and Kyle Morris. The junior attendants are William Schneegas and Laurel Luke. Sophomore attendants are Cody Norman and Jacquelyn Kinder. Freshman attendants are Travis Wilson and Christy Carson. Honor alumni are J.B. Chapman and Terri Jorganson, and honor faculty are Chris Dralle and Syliva Duncan.
