On May 6 2017 Hannah Hughes’ home was egged.
Many reported cases of homes and cars being egged have circulated Okemos High School. It is now common knowledge amongst mainly juniors and seniors that a small minority of students have been targets.
Many students have taken these events as a joke, but Hannah Hughes (12) feels differently. “I just want whoever did this to know that my mother cried,” Hughes said.
The eggs were fired using a launching device, causing damage to vehicles and the walls of homes.
“[I knew I was egged] because my house was covered in eggs and I had to clean it off.” said one student who wishes to remain anonymous.
Damon Cooper (11) made up his mind about the culprit. “We all saw who did it,” Cooper said. Cooper’s car was covered with eggs, as was Grace Bielby (11)’s vehicle.
When asked whether the person responsible should be held accountable, each victim had a different take.
“I don’t know, people don’t have anything better to do on weekends,” Gage Vanorder (11) said.
Some think that the eggings could be a result of a type of middle-class-suburban-gang-warfare, but the anonymous student said that he thought the eggings are taking place just because of “previous guy drama.”
“Maybe people are just doing it to do it,” Bielby said. “I have no idea [who did it] but I want to find out.”
This is not the first time that eggings like this have occurred as eggings are a common staple of high school shenanigans, however this is a rare time when an egging event of this size has happened.
Suspected perpetrators of these events are mixed, coming from the victims. “Yeah I know who did it,” Cooper said.
Speculation of the baseball team has also spread amongst those affected.
