As featured speaker and grand marshal for the Carroll High School homecoming festivities, Tim Hughes, who retired this year after a 38-year science-teaching career in Carroll, had a fun take on real versus not real. Hughes presented his pep talk via a video on the Carroll Athletic Field stadium scoreboard Thursday night, Oct. 8.

He finished on a more serious note, saying, “Homecoming is not just coming home, it’s always being home. Right now you guys are in my heart; my heart is my home. Right now, I’m in Carroll, Iowa. Right now, I am homecoming. So you will always be in my heart, and I will always be home with you.”
