Altha High School had planned to celebrate homecoming this week, but the event is being rescheduled in light of the weekend death of student Nolan Musgrove.
According to teacher Russell Baggett who coordinates the homecoming events, coronation will be held Friday night, Jan. 24, during halftime of the junior varsity game. All other activities will be postponed until next week.
Musgrove, 16, was the junior class representative on the court. As previously reported, he was killed in a single vehicle traffic accident on SR 71 early Saturday. Two fellow students sustained minor injuries in the crash.
