It’s that time of the year again, when summer comes to an end and the seniors start preparing for the annual homecoming dance. This year, we have a broad spectrum of candidates running for Homecoming King and Queen. Now, the big question is… Who will win? The Forge staff spoke with some of the court and asked them the following questions:.
1. How do you feel about being nominated for court?
2. Do you think that you’ll win?
3. What behind the scenes task is the most challenging for you while preparing for the dance? Here are the responses:
- “I feel very honored to be a part of the courtI am not gonna lie, I wasn’t even going to go to homecoming, so it almost feels like a punishment.”
- No prolly not. All of the other people on the court are more suitable to be royalty than me.
- We have to choreograph and rehearse a dance, then perform it in front of the whole senior class. I’d rather not, but game is game.
- “Super excited, it is great that I can be on court with many of my friends”
- “No, lol”
- “Arranging rides to and from before and after activities”
1. “I was actually pretty surprised that I got nominated. I really didn’t think I was going to, and when ASB came up to me announcing that I had been nominated, I was very shocked. My sister was homecoming queen when she was in highschool so it does feel kind of exciting about the fact that I could potentially follow in her footsteps.”
2. “I genuinely don’t think I will win. I feel like there’s a lot of competition with all the other girls on court. Everyone is pretty much liked by all so I feel like it’ll be a pretty close vote.”
3. “The hardest task I feel like when preparing for homecoming is probably finding a dress that you want to wear and even matching the dress with how I want to wear my hair. The option to either have it natural, get braids or even straighten it. It definitely takes time and effort to plan it all out, but it all comes together in the end.”
- “I feel great knowing that people nominated me and believe in me.”
- “I honestly think my fellow nominees have a higher chance of taking the W.”
- “I think writing the brag sheet will be the hardest part for me because I hate talking about myself.”
- “I’m really excited to be on homecoming court and I think it’s going to be really fun to be a part of!”
- “I don’t think I will win, but we will see what happens!”
- “The dance is definitely the most challenging because I don’t dance and we have to choreograph the whole thing ourselves outside of school.”
- “I feel honored as heck.”
- “If you vote for me we are friends so hopefully my friends come in clutch.”
- “Carrying the weight of being a Hoco queen on my shoulders.”
- “I feel surprised and think that it’s nice of people to have voted for me.”
- “I don’t think I’ll win because I’m betting all the football players will vote for the football player on the court.”
- “The most challenging task is making a ‘brag’ sheet of good things about us for them to read at the football game.”
