Longtime Pelican Rapids educator Doug Bruggeman, a stage veteran of many Homecoming and other programs during his nearly three decades at the Pelican schools, was the guest speaker for the coronation. Bruggeman described his promotion to “Dean of Students” as a move to a “bigger office,” where he will form connections with virtually all students and families in grades 7-12.

Homecoming week was unlike any other, as the ceremony was moved outside—to Chauncey Martin Field.

The spacious track and football field, and bleachers, provided ample room for social distancing. 

Crowned King and Queen were McHale Korf and Tatianna Wiley.

Korfs, late Sup. Richardson honored with Pelican High yearbook pages 

The Pelican Rapids High School Yearbook staff went to press with the 2019-20 yearbooks—despite delays and deadline snags due to the COVID-19 outbreak. 

Faculty advisor Jill Roisum announced special features in the yearbook. Included are pages in ‘Loving Memory of Dr. Edwin R. Richardson’ who inspired students and staff with his passion for children and education. School Superintendent Richardson died in April, and the school staff and students found themselves overcoming both the coronavirus and the loss of a beloved superintendent. Kim and Kayla Richardson are pictured here, presented a bouquet by Jill Roisum, at the 2020 Homecoming coronation, held at the football field Sept. 29. 

The 75th edition was also dedicated to Brian and Amy Korf for “their demonstrated leadership, hard work, and true dedication to the students and other staff members at Pelican Rapids High School.” The husband-wife team is highly visible at the School and in the community; Brian as superintendent, principal, and coach; and Amy as part of the teaching faculty.
