There are six candidates for each position this year, due to a tie.
Students at KHS will have daily dress-up days next week and a dodgeball tournament. The community pep rally is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 27, at 7 p.m. There, the king and queen will be announced. A bonfire will be held in the gravel parking lot near the softball field following the rally. The homecoming parade will be held in downtown Knoxville at 3 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28.
