Homecoming leaders will meet throughout the spring semester to select a theme and finalize the schedule of activities, which may include a combination of virtual and in-person events as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. A highlight of the week will include the selection of 10 student finalists for the Excellence in Community, Education and Leadership (Ex.C.E.L.) Awards. The winners will be announced during halftime of the football game Oct. 16.
