Fort Zumwalt School District had hoped to honor the 50th anniversary of Class of 1966 at homecoming this coming weekend, but a lack of interest has forced them to cancel those plans.
The homecoming celebration will go on, however. The Fort Zumwalt/Fort Zumwalt North Hall of Fame will induct four new members at a ceremony at 5 p.m., September 23 in the auditorium.
The 2016 Hall of Fame Class includes: Brenda (Wenger) Lettera (Class of 1983) Personnel Security Manager for the United States Department of Defense; Thomas Morse (Class of 1986) composer; Dr. Bryan Painter (Class of 1988) Assistant Superintendent for Kirkwood School District; and Markus Bauman (Class of 1989) partner in King and Spalding‘s Corporate Practice, London office.
The celebration continues with a tailgate on the school parking lot beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday, September 23. The varsity football team will play against Wentzville Holt at 7 p.m. at the stadium.
At 9 a.m. on Saturday, September 24, the homecoming parade will leave Westhoff Elementary and wind its way down Homefield to St. Matthew, then down Tom Ginnier to North High. Then, at 7 p.m., the homecoming dance will wrap up the homecoming celebration.
