Cass Tech held its Homecoming dance at the TCF Center on Oct. 8.
The Technicians were excited about this dance because last year’s dance was canceled due to the pandemic.
“I personally felt like I had a really good experience, had a lot of fun,” said senior Masai Reddick. “I was able to go and just have fun. I was able to enjoy being there seeing people that I usually don’t see because we’re in different cohorts.”
Cass Tech students are divided into two cohorts, alternating days they attend school. This year's Homecoming dance was not only the first time that students were able to see their classmates, but it was also the first school activity since the pandemic began in 2020.
Barbara Moore, the senior sponsor and assistant principal at Cass Tech, said seeing CT students in a social setting was the best part of the dance.
“Being in a social setting together, something that they hadn’t done for a year and a half, because that was taken away with the pandemic,” Moore said.
Like previous years, the Homecoming dance was held at the TCF Center, formerly known as Cobo Hall. Students said enjoyed the TCF Center because the area that was used for the Homecoming dance was spacious and it had a view of the Detroit River.
“We were able to explore, look out the window,” Reddick said.
Senior Kyied Cannon was crowned Homecoming king and senior Aaliyah Buckmon was crowned Homecoming queen.
