On Friday, September 16, McKinney Christian Academy hosted Atlas Homeschool for their homecoming football game. At half time, the 2022 Upper School Homecoming Court was announced. Each grade voted for a boy and girl representative to be recognized at the game. Representatives included freshmen Makennah Vann and Zach Scott, sophomores Courtney Arnold and Giovanni Trementozzi and juniors Ella Wedemeyer and Caden Brown. Seniors elected four girls and four boys, including Karson Kuykendall, Leigh-Evan Kitzmiller, Brooke Jensen, Abigail Thomas, Hudson Sukhia, Bobby McWard, Nathan McMahon and Josh Buchanan. Boy representatives escorted the girls to their designated yard lines, and each pair stepped forward as their short biography was read. The crowning of the king and queen followed shortly after. This year, the student body elected Thomas and McWard as the 2022 Homecoming King and Queen. The football game resumed after halftime, and the Mustangs lost with a very tight score of 20-17.

On Saturday night, McKinney Christian Academy hosted the annual Homecoming dance in the Student Life Center. The SLC was decorated with disco lights to match the “Back to the Future” dance theme. Activities such as a photo booth, cornhole game, pickle ball court and dance floor were set up for students to enjoy. The dance began at 8:30 p.m. and wrapped up at 11 p.m. Students left the dance safely and school resumed the following Monday.
