Homecoming, the time when all schools get together and celebrate the students and all that they do. Along with this comes school spirit and a lot of fun, but during this year everything changes. After coming back to school many different changes have been made to the campus. Along with that, people have worried if homecoming would even be a thing. So we needed some explanation. After everything, the students at Cartersville high school are going through they finally pushed through with a way to have a homecoming. With this on our minds, we need some inside stories. We interviewed half of the freshman homecoming court and this is what we found out.
