Celebrating 120 Years of Serving the communities of Devine, Natalia, Lytle, Bigfoot, and Moore in Medina, Frio, and Atascosa Counties
Devine Homecoming Sept. 24-25: “Come for the football, come for the band, come for the fun!”
“Warhorses Marching Ever On, on to Victory, and to Glory!” If you are from Devine, went to school or taught school here, or had a student in the district, you probably “sang” those lyrics in your head to the tune of the DHS School Song! And if you were a Band student, you “heard” the cymbal crash at the end of that line too, didn’t you? The Devine School & Fight Songs are so familiar to us and are part of our traditions that no matter how long you have been away, it comes back to you, in a special way, each time you hear it!
“Loud Cheers Ring Out, Hurrahs Resound, to Proclaim that, same Old Story.” That “old story” is what keeps our Devine Ex-Students & Teachers coming back for each Homecoming weekend. This year is no different, and Devine alumni will come together again at Warhorse Stadium Friday Night Football on Sept. 24th & again on Saturday, the 25th at the Devine Student Activity Center at 1:00pm. All Devine Ex-Students & Teachers are invited to attend!
“Ever Bold as of Old Guard Her Honor.” At Halftime, and at the Saturday Ex-Students/Teachers meeting & social, the DHS Classes of 1970 & 1971 will be honored for their 51st & 50th class reunions. All classes are special, and it is a privilege to be able to have a time to honor them at Homecoming this year.
“On the Field Never Yield, Win her Fame.” Devine Alumni are encouraged to sit together in the south end of the homestands to cheer on their Devine Warhorses & Warhorse Band! At Halftime, students from the Honor Classes of 1970 & 1971 will be introduced! Cheer them on too!
“Warhorses, now be Bold; Maroon & Gold unfold.” Many current team members are children, grandchildren, and even great-grandchildren of former Devine students & teachers. So, the traditions that many of you took part in during your schooldays in Devine, continue today!
Our heads we bow, our Pledge Renew.” Join us at Devine Homecoming 2021 to have your “Devine Spirit” renewed with your fellow classmates & friends! Friday, Sept. 24 – come early to sign in with the Devine Ex-Students/Teachers Association prior to the 7:30pm kickoff, then on Saturday, Sept. 25 – come to the Devine Student Activity Center (DSAC) at 1:00pm for another time of meeting & greeting together with other alumni!
“Oh, Devine, We will be True.”
“FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!”
