Boosters at Hickman High School have more than usual to celebrate this fall with two state champions.

Students, parents and fans will soon have a chance to show their appreciation.

An assembly at 2:45 p.m. Friday will be held in the commons area of the high school to recognize the Kewpies’ football team, which won its first state championship in 30 years Friday in St. Louis against Hazelwood East.

Another celebration will take place from 2-4 p.m. on Dec. 12. The Kewpie Championship Sunday Open House will recognize the championship football team as well as senior Tim Cornell, who won his second straight individual state boys’ cross country championship this year.

The event will be open to the public and will give community members a chance to get autographs, eat dessert with the athletes and watch highlight films of the championship fall season.

Kay Lindner, the student activities director at Hickman, said she expects around 1,000 people to attend the event.
