T-Wolf of the Week (09/22)

Reese Burgener

In Student Council, Homecoming is one of the busiest and most exciting weeks of the year. This Homecoming season, StuCo president senior Reese Burgener is in charge of making sure everything goes to according to plan.

“Student Council is in charge of a lot of the decision-making during Homecoming,” Burgerner said. “We’re in charge of budgeting the hallway decorations, managing royalty and the royalty game and setting up the actual dance.”

With so many responsibilities, there are obvious stressors. Burgener said the most stressful part of StuCo’s Homecoming week is managing all of the moving parts.

“I think the most stressful part is making sure everything is organized,” Burgener said. “I run the StuCo Instagram, so we [have to] make sure we have the graphics and posts, as well.”

In past years, StuCo was responsible for choosing the Homecoming theme, but this year, Burgener and the rest of StuCo left it to a student vote. They voted for Netflix.

“We thought it made sense to let the students choose,” Burgener said. “A lot of the time, students didn’t like the theme…so we left it in the hands of the people.”

Burgener said allowing the students to vote on the Hoco theme encourages involvement in the spirit days, which is her favorite homecoming tradition.

“My favorite thing is seeing everyone participate in the spirit days,” Burgener said. “The spirit point competition is a great motivator, and it’s fun to see everyone showing up.”

Homecoming week ends with the dance on Saturday. StuCo buys the decorations and sets up the dance, and Burgener said she thinks it’s really fun.

“Make time between dinner and the after party to go to the actual dance,” Burgener said. “I think it’s a good time, and we have a DJ.”
