Del Norte High makes homecoming changes – The San Diego Union

To recognize its students for their character instead of popularity, Del Norte High is doing away with its homecoming court and replacing it with a student-selected group of honorees.

Dubbed “Faces of the Flock” — the Nighthawks collectively refer to themselves as a flock — each class nominated and voted for representatives for having good character and working the hardest among their peers, said junior Brooke Cole, an ASB Election Committee member.

“We did not want (homecoming honors) going to those because they are the most popular … or cutest couple,” she said.

Last year Del Norte kept the homecoming court tradition, but tweaked it, letting the top nominees based on character and school spirit — regardless of gender — represent the classes. In the case of the seniors, the top two vote getters — both male — were crowned homecoming “royalty.” ASB Director Jennifer Mitchell said the students are retaining the idea of recognition based on character, but eliminating a crowning among the seniors this year.
