“Homecoming is always a special event. It’s great not just for our students, but also for future generations of Argonauts. With the committee members getting involved and with past alumni coming back, it’s always welcoming to everyone who comes back. That’s why it’s homecoming, everyone is back home,” said Dr. William Toulios, Argo’s superintendent.

On September 9, 2023, Argo Community High School hosted its annual homecoming parade, having not only a special reunion for the class of 1973, but a ceremony forever honoring Mrs. Ziccardi  for her contributions to the success of Argo Community High School.

This parade took place from 57th Summit Park and Archer to the front of Argo Community High School and lasted for an hour and a half. The event’s goal was to bring together the community and celebrate the success of past, and current, Argonauts.

Marty Malinovski, a previous student at Argo Community High School in 1973, was delighted by the parade and enjoyed seeing the community come together once again.

“It looked fantastic. It really looked like the whole community was having so much fun. My favorite part had to be seeing the Sailorettes right up front, it truly was amazing,” said Malinovski. “It’s good to come back where I grew up, reuniting with old friends and staying in the community.”

Events like these bring our community together, creating unforgettable memories as we laugh, celebrate, and support one another. These memories will act as a framework for our community, inspiring and guiding future generations with unity and empathy. Our community spirit will continue to shape the heart and minds of those who follow.

“I truly love this parade, seeing how many people come together and have their spirits show. From the 50th anniversary float and the cheering of the Sailorettes to the community, their smiling faces shine through the parade,” said Emma Garcia a current Sophomore at Argo Community High School. “Nothing could have been better than the entire Argo school coming together as a community and making a memory they will never forget.”
