Camanche to celebrate homecoming

CAMANCHE — Students of all ages packed the gymnasium Monday at Camanche High School to witness the ceremonial crowning of Homecoming King Lane Kaczinski and Queen Jordan Goldbeck.

The two high-school seniors will lead the ranks during Camanche’s homecoming week, which will conclude with a football game against the Northeast Rebels on Friday and a homecoming dance Saturday.

Kaczinski said this is his first year participating as a member of the homecoming court and being selected as king came as a big surprise to him.

“It’s a little shocking that I was voted king,” Kaczinski said. “But, I feel honored.”

The shock didn’t end with Kaczinski, however.

His cohort, Goldbeck, also felt surprised by the students’ decision to crown her queen, so surprised in fact, that she forgot to write a speech for the occasion.

“I’m kind of embarrassed because I didn’t have a speech prepared,” Goldbeck said. “But, I am very excited and very honored for this experience.”

That experience will include a convertible ride through the streets of Camanche during the homecoming parade; a procession of the homecoming court prior to the start of the varsity football game on Friday; and a short appearance from the two during the dance on Saturday.

Although their responsibilities are minimal, both Goldbeck and Kaczinski are expected to display high levels of school pride during the entire week of homecoming, which will offer a variety of activities for the whole student body to enjoy.

During his speech, Kaczinski expressed that pride for his school and encouraged everyone to join him in cheering on his fellow Camanche Indians during the week’s athletic events.

“I want to say good luck to the volleyball team and football team and I hope everyone comes out to support both,” Kaczinski said. “And have fun at the dance.”

As a member of the Camanche football team he understands the importance of school spirit, which is why he feels strongly about leading the students and team as homecoming king.

“Getting named king is a pretty cool,” Kaczinski said. “I am excited to represent the school as king during the game, at the parade and at the dance.”
