The students had a lot of energy and spirit on Friday’s homecoming pep assembly as the band played and cheer pumped up the crowd.

To get the rally started, Marlee Doniff and Carson Brown did the spirit-o-meter to see how loud each grade got and the seniors won.

Everyone was high in spirits and was ready for what was next. The scavenger hunt was next, which was entertaining to everyone because students were randomly selected to run around in gym and find what was in the list.

“It was so fun. I made new friends and I feel like it made the whole junior class come together to help,” junior Cat Frank said.

The Homecoming king and queen – Ashley Cheatham and Patrick Stege – was announced at the game later that night.  The fall sport teams also spoke about their season and highlights.

Sophomore Emily Gann and freshman Samuel Audrey were selected as spirit king and queen.

“I was so surprised. There were so many people with so much spirit, I truly felt honored.” Gann said.

Mrs. Genenbacher won as most spirited teacher.

“It feels great to be named Most Spirited Teacher – I had some tough competition. I love teaching at Liberty and I’m proud that shows through in the form of school spirit,” Mrs. Genenbacher said.

The student body got pumped up when the teachers did the lip sync battle.  Mr. Barnes, Mrs. T.O., Mr. Hendricks and Mr. Barker went all out, but by the screams of the students, Mr. Barnes won.

Mr. Barker performed “Part of my world” from The Little Mermaid followed by Mr.  Hendricks who did “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Mrs. T.O. sang ‘Twist and Shout” and lastly Mr. Barnes “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana.

The students and staff were ready and prepared to bring the spirit into homecoming  weekend.
