Those who know best say this will be a banner year for alumni scholarships.

Dave Burrows, head of the alumni association in Claremore, says this year they will see 23, $1,000 scholarships awarded to students.

Not only is this a larger monetary amount, but there are more of them, he said.

In addition to their fundraising work, like the golf tournament, the Alumni Association is hard at work preparing for homecoming festivities.

On Oct. 5 the alumni luncheon at Elks Lodge starts at 9:30 followed by the alumni program at 10:45 and a pep assembly at the high school.

Parade line up begins at 2:15 with a parade start time of 3:15, beginning at the Claremore Expo.

Coronation is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
