2020 Homecoming Court

Homecoming VideoDue to the current situation involving COVID-19 and the numerous social distancing guidelines and restrictions, the Middletown Area High School Alumni Association made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Homecoming festivities. This includes, but is not limited to, the Alumni Dinner, the Homecoming Parade, and alumni-related football game events. This decision did not stop the Middletown Area High School senior class from selecting a 2020 Homecoming Court. The crowning ceremony took place at War Memorial Field on Friday, October 2, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. prior to the 7 p.m. kick-off against Steel-High. Serina Gurm, escorted by Gyles Adderley, selected the box with the yellow rose which awarded her the honor of being named the 2020 Homecoming Queen. Congratulations to the following students for being selected by their peers to represent the Class of 2021!
