The Muskogee High School student leadership are hoping to highlight alumni from all over the world during homecoming week, which runs Sept. 16 through Sept. 20. Alumni are invited to email photos and a short blurb of where they are and what they are doing to or The MHS student leadership team also asks alumni to complete the alumni information form here.

The week’s festivities will wrap up on Friday, Sept. 20 as the Roughers host Putnam City West at the Indian Bowl for a 7 p.m. kickoff of the homecoming football game.

Each day will feature a theme during the week. Monday, Sept. 16 will be “Start at Home” with students wearing Oklahoma wear or country attire. Tuesday, Sept. 17 will be “Tourist Tuesday” with Florida Beach attire and Wednesday, Sept. 18 with Crazy California clothes for “Wacky Wednesday.” “Trendy Thursday” will take place on Thursday, Sept. 19 with best dress in New York. “Finish at Home Friday” will wrap up the week wearing Rougher green in Muskogee.
