Homecoming: THS 150

This year marks 150 years since the beginning of high school education in Titusville! To celebrate, this post is a photo walk through time, from 1915 to last year’s homecoming. It includes memories from football, cheerleading, majorettes, marching band, homecoming parades, and homecoming courts. Maybe you will see yourself or a friend. Feel free to share, reminisce, and cheer on our Rockets at Homecoming 150 this Friday!
