Last week, students participated in Homecoming, a high school tradition popular especially in the South. The week was filled with dress up days, mums, a pep rally and a football game.

The game was the main event of the week. Many students looked forward to the crowning of Homecoming King and Queen during halftime. Senior Cole Stewart-Johnson was named Homecoming King and senior Amanda Baca was named Homecoming Queen.

“I was surprised when I was nominated, so I was nervous when I won,” Stewart-Johnson said.

This wasn’t the first time Stewart-Johnson was elected by the school. In addition to being on the track team, Stewart-Johnson is this year’s senior class president.

Involvement in school activities and popularity influenced Homecoming nominations and elections. Baca has been a Summit Sapphire for two years and a member of the powerlifting team.

“It feels really good to win,” Baca said. “It feels like a big accomplishment.”

Despite the new title, Baca believes being Homecoming Queen won’t change her.

“I’m still the same exact person,” Baca said. “Winning didn’t change that.”
