Homecoming weekend at Tarleton State University was a good enough reason for a 15-minute homecoming parade through the halls at Lake Air Montessori Magnet School, which benefits from the professional development opportunities provided by Tarleton’s Effective Schools Project.

Students and staff donned the Tarleton State University colors and filled the school hallways with excitement. Those lucky enough to get a spot along the one-mile parade route were treated to the sounds of the University High Drumline, with cheers led by the Waco High Cheerleaders. School Principal and Parade Grand Marshal Stephanie Tankersley led the way as the procession marched throughout each hallway of the school. Those who participated showed their spirit with creative homemade floats and handmade signs. The honorary homecoming king and queen waved tirelessly to the crowd as their teacher, Glenda Bain, pushed them in a royal carriage.
At the end of the parade line, it was back to business as usual. But it was well-deserved 15-minutes of fun for the hard-working students, and a great way for the school to show appreciation for their partner in education, Tarleton State University.
