Homecoming Court

Brooke Fleming, Contributor

Homecoming is an exciting time of the year at Totino-Grace High School, between the pep-fest, spirit days, sports games and the homecoming royalty. The homecoming court is a time for students to recognize fellow classmates who represent their grades well.

Students are able to nominate one male and one female representative from their grade to be nominated into the homecoming court. The first round allows for multiple nominations and from there a list is formed that allows for final votes to continue on to the final round. The seniors have ten finalists and every other grade has six finalists. All 28 students dress up and pick a partner in their grade to walk with.

The week of homecoming we have a ceremony where all nominees walk the aisle in front of the school and receive a rose. This rose indicates whether they are the queen or king or not. Each grade crowns one king and one queen by the end of the ceremony. The nominees gave their thoughts on being nominated and what they are most and least excited for.
