Meet the 2020 Homecoming Court
October 15, 2020
While school spirit wasn’t heard campus wide and the dancing heeled feet of students didn’t pummel the cafeteria floor, the homecoming court still competed this year, despite the cancellation of the dance and pep-rally.
Junior Andrea Hammond is a part of the homecoming committee and student council.
“We’re trying our best to get everything we can from the normal Homecoming season,” said Hammond prior to the event.
Junior Sam Elsen is a member of the student council.
“Usually there would be a pep-rally, and the candidates would play games, but we can’t do that this year,” said Elsen.
Each female homecoming court candidate received a feature on the Courier Daily Newscast and walked out before the homecoming football game.
The 10 senior candidates chosen were: Allie Abel, Lana Cotton, Mia Dills, Brooke Fitzgerald, Kelsey Gemmill, Virginia Good, Savannah Lesley, Rachel Oestrike, Lauren Schefter and Cecelia Wilson.
The entire student body voted for the queen the week of Oct. 12, and the winner was announced Friday, Oct. 16 at the football game.
Good won the title of “Homecoming Queen.”
Student council adviser Kellin McCullough shared her thoughts on the cancellation of the dance.
“It’s a bummer, but I think everyone understands why,” said McCullough. “We hope we can still do something in the spring.”
