Ashland H.S. holds first homecoming parade in three years

Ashland High School successfully held it’s homecoming parade today after being cancelled in 2013.

“We had lost some of the tradition because we haven’t done it for the past two years so planning it was a lot of looking back… what did we do three years ago?” Parade Coordinator Evan Mouledoux said.

Ashland High School’s homecoming parade was cancelled last year when they had to go on a campus lock down due to a Facebook gun threat.

The year before there was too much rain.

“The homecoming parade is really our opportunity to get out and show the city and show the valley who we are as a school and we haven’t been able to do that for the past two years so it’s nice to get back out there,” Mouledoux said.

With the hope of creating new traditions, the school introduced new groups that haven’t been involved before like the equestrian group, soccer, and the anti-sexual assault group.

After three years of no action, some students are thrilled about Wednesday’s school’s parade that went through downtown Ashland.

“My adrenaline just went way up and I just can’t get my smile off my face now because I’m so happy,” Senior Abdullah Rizk said.

The parade coordinator hopes the new traditions can continue next year.
