The weekend-long Meigs High School homecoming celebration, hosted by the Meigs Local Alumni Association, includes a number of family-oriented events, beginning with a tailgate party on Friday night, a performance by the alumni band, and recognition of the distinguished alumni, chosen by the homecoming organizers. On Saturday, vendors will set up on Court Street in downtown Pomeroy, the Meigs High School Marching Band will perform, and a parade is scheduled. K&D Karaoke will play music from 2 to 3 p.m., and an alumni musical performance, “The Marauder,” will close the celebration prior to an alumni football game.
Alumni are recognized from the arts, the fields of science and medicine, public service and other professional areas. They are introducted prior to the homecoming game against Vinton County.
Information about nominating criteria for distinguished alumni is available on the official website, www.meigsalumni.com. Erin Roush of Farmers Bank and Savings Co. is the point person for the nominations, and can be contacted at 992-2155.
