Faribault Bethlehem Academy is taking the opportunity to provide a life lesson in adversity by celebrating Homecoming with the traditional crowning of a King.  Traditionally the event is held during a pep fest in Van Orsow Auditorium followed by a parade around the neighborhood.

COVID-19 would not allow for the parade or pep fest but undaunted the students are going to have a King crowned at halftime of the football game Saturday at Bruce Smith Field.

The game against Randolph will be broadcast on KDHL Radio, 920 AM beginning 1:45 p.m.

Bethlehem Academy President/Principal Mindy Reeder will be joining KDHL in the booth during the Bethlehem Academy Halftime Report of the game.
