On Tuesday night, various students came together to be involved in Homestead's 4th annual "Taste of Homestead", an event that focuses on different countries and the history and food that come from them. Born four years ago, it was a dream that Taste of Homestead would become a integral part of the culture of HHS, which was evident as a result of this year's event. There were nearly 30 countries with different food and posters present along with what was estimated to be 200 people from the community who came out to try some yummy food.

Former Spartan turned Journalist, awarded Best Breaking News Reporter
By Emma Leininger
Patrick Svitek, a 2010 graduate of Homestead High School, is now currently working as a reporter for the Texas Tribune. He has recently been deemed Best Breaking News Reporter in Austin by the Austin Chronicle and his work has been highly celebrated in the world of journalism.
Svitek graduated from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism in 2014 and began his career in publications at the Houston Chronicle’s Austin Bureau writing about Texas politics. The Texas Tribune was impressed with his work, and from there he was hired, continuing to write about the politics in Texas.
During his time at Homestead Svitek participated in the Spartana, the student run newspaper. His senior year Svitek worked as editor in chief for the paper. Along with his work for the Spartana, Svitek interned at the Bluffton News-Banner. Svitek also took on many internships in the journalism world during college; interning at the Journal Gazette, the Huffington Post, the Chicago Tribune and The Washington Post.
Svitek has been involved with journalism since elementary school and obviously has a passion for his field of work. Currently, his work load can range from no immediate assignments to juggling three or four stories at one time. Clearly Svitek is taking great strides in his profession and Homestead is proud to claim him as a former Spartan.

This weekend was one for the books, as our girls cross country team took third place at the state meet and our award-winning marching band took third at their state competition. The girls cross country team is considered to be the fastest group to ever come through Homestead, with a ninth place finish by senior Madison Distelrath and a tenth place finish from freshman Katherine Walther. Homestead's marching band attended their 30th consecutive state competition this weekend and placed third under the direction of Steve Barber and Brad Wadkins. Way to go Spartans!
