Before the football team can storm the field, and the fans can make their mums, there is one important choice each grade level has to make; the students must choose who will represent their class.
The delegates who are voted on to homecoming court are chosen by their peers because they have made an impression on the people around them.
One of the chosen students, Ashton Woods, 9, has had her dreams come true.
“This is [something] I’ve always wanted to happen,” Woods said. “It wasn’t like a do or die thing, but it was [super] exciting to [be chosen].”
Yari Morales, 11, was shocked when the announcement was made.
“When they said my name I was in physics, and I was taking my stuff out of my backpack,” Morales said. “And I just stopped because [ I was very surprised].”
Being voted on to Homecoming court is a huge honor, but being a senior just makes it even more special. David Axton, 12, was one of the lucky seniors who is able to experience this.
“It’s definitely an honor and a blessing,” Axton said. “I am just thankful to know that I have made a difference.”
The reason students were chosen was because they positively impact their peers.
“I think [I was nominated] because I try to make sure that I am nice to people,” Morales said. “I [try] to help them out any way I can.”
The delegates were recognized during halftime of the football game on Friday, October 4 against Churchill. They had the chance to walk along the field in front of all of their fellow students.
