Homecoming King and Queen Class of 1958

Sheila Kerr Homecoming Queen Class of 1958
The first Homecoming Queen in the fall of 1957 - Sheila Kerr

From the 1958 Mirror....

"A homecoming, during which old grads were welcomed back, was initiated this year [1957]. "Murph" (Wayne Murphy) and Sheila Kerr were the King and Queen, and they were crowned at the Pep Rally preceeding the Herkimer-Ilion game. Remember the bonfire, the snake dance and the burning in effigy of the Herkimer team? The traditional Herkimer-Ilion game was played with the usual fervor; we won again, placing Ilion's team, co-captained by Wick Hammond, Jack Noll and Wayne Murphy, in first place in the Iroquois League."
