The 48th annual Haughton Homecoming Parade was held Oct. 5. Haughton High Principal Gene Couvillion selected Polly Goslin, who served as the English Department Head for her 33 and a half years at Haughton High, as the 2017 parade Grand Marshal. The parade features school clubs and sports teams, the Big Red Buccaneer Band, Haughton area school groups and community organizations. The town of Haughton lines the parade route, collecting candy and waving at familiar faces as the floats pass by. Pictured are members of the Big Red Buccaneer Band from Haughton High School; Lil’ Buc cheerleaders; Alana Lewis, Miss Louisiana’s Outstanding Teen and Haughton High senior; and Mary Claire Shaw, 2017 Haughton High Homecoming Queen.
