Homecoming Dance a Success; King and Queen Announced

in News by

The 2015 Homecoming Dance got off to a great start thanks to the DJs, Trevor Bramblett and Jonathan Pickens. As the night went on, the music intensified—starting with swing dancing music, and progressing to more upbeat, modern music.

Freshmen had various expectations prior to the dance. When asked about his anticipations for the dance, freshman, Andrew Pridgen said, “My expectations were for the dance to be crowded, but a lot of fun. My expectations were definitely met; I had tons of fun, and my favorite part was hanging out with my friends for the whole night.”

Like Pridgen, freshman, Ansley Cotter, said, “I’d have to say my expectations were pretty high, since I had heard a lot of talk about how amazing the dance was from the other grades, and my expectations were definitely met! I had so much fun dancing with friends, and the music was great. That night will certainly be one I’ll remember for a long time! My favorite part was probably when the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song remix came on, which was a special surprise.”

However, some ninth graders had lower expectations, like freshman, Annie Cowart, who said, “I had pretty low expectations for the dance. The only thing that I was actually excited for was dressing up and the DJ’s because I saw pictures beforehand and…” The freshmen girls agree with Cowart on how cute the DJs were, based on their Instagrams. Cowart was pleasantly surprised after the dance, saying, “My expectations were blown away at the actual dance part because of the music. The DJ’s were amazing and played really cool music the whole time, and it was really fun jumping around all night.”

The seniors were also excited about how fun the dance was. This was their fourth and final Homecoming Dance, and many said it was the best one yet. Senior, Chandler Marsh, said, “The dance was awesome, it was my favorite homecoming dance that we have ever had. The DJs were really hot and really good which made the dance even better. I liked it more this year because all of our grade was really into it which made it even more fun.”

On Friday, September 18th, seniors, Kylie Reed and Tucker Cannon, were announced as the 2015 Homecoming Queen and King. When asked about their experiences on Friday, Reed said, “It was a really fun night. I was so excited, and I’m glad I got to share that experience with my dad and friends. Definitely a night worth remembering!” and Cannon said, “It was cool to receive that kind of recognition from my high school peers. I loved sharing the moment with my sister who came back from Alabama to escort me. It was really special because I escorted her last year when she was on the court. Winning the football game also made it ten times better.” Congratulations Kylie and Tucker!
