East Aurora alum and longtime community organizer Theresa Shoemaker served as the grand marshal of the 2012 East Aurora High School Homecoming Parade Wednesday afternoon, leading hundreds of her fellow Tomcats in the procession around the East High neighborhood.
A 1975 East High graduate, Shoemaker is the chairman of the Aurora East Educational Foundation and executive director of Communities in Schools of Aurora.
East High will have its annual Homecoming assembly Friday, with the Tomcats playing the Elgin Maroons in the Homecoming football game Friday night.
Saturday evening’s Homecoming Dance will feature the theme “The Greatest Show on Earth.”
