Q: What is it like being on the homecoming court during the current pandemic?
A: “It’s different because a lot of things have changed this year. It’s cool being a part of it, considering what’s going on right now. This year is also different because I don’t get to see all of my friends at school, but I’ve adapted and learned to make it fun.”
Q: What does being on the homecoming court mean to you?
A: “It feels pretty cool. It makes me a part of the school, in some way. I did not see myself in the homecoming court because I didn’t make it last year, but I am so grateful to be in it this year.”
Q: How did you feel when you found out you were on the homecoming court?
A: “I was very excited. I was most excited for the homecoming parade and pep rally because I was going to be in it, but sadly it is very different this year.”
Q: Have you always wanted to be on homecoming court? Why or why not?
A: “Yes, I remember going to the parade when I was in elementary school. I would see the seniors that were on the homecoming court in the cars. It was a cool feeling.”
Q: How has COVID-19 impacted your senior year so far?
A: “It’s changed a lot just because all of the events [have been] taken away, but I’ve tried to make the most of it. I was really looking forward to the homecoming dance because I remember it being really fun my junior year.”
Q: Despite the circumstances, how will you make the best out of your senior year?
A: “I’ll just spend time with friends to make more memories that are meaningful before senior year ends. Because I know next year we will all be in different colleges and cities.”
Q: What are you most excited about regarding homecoming?
A: “Probably the homecoming game because you are out on the field in front of everybody. Also, walking the field is pretty exciting. It’s all exciting because you don’t know who’s going to win and I know a lot of people are going to be there because it’s homecoming.”
Q: Who/what inspired you to get involved in homecoming?
A: “I’d have to say Lauren Lucio. Lauren nominated me since we’ve always run for everything together. She pushed me to do it this year and I’m glad she did.”
Q: Throughout high school, what were you involved in?
A: “Throughout high school, I was involved in a lot of sports like track and cross country but never stuck to them. I’m also a Student Council officer which I love doing. I’d say I was pretty involved in school all four years of high school.”
Q: What was your favorite activity you were involved in and why?
A: “Probably cross country because the people are really fun and it’s a fun environment. The people were very open-minded and laid back but also childish like me which made it super fun. We also got a lot of freedom so we could run anywhere we wanted.”
Q: What will you miss most about high school when you graduate?
A: “I’ll miss all of my friends because I know we will all be starting our own lives and going our separate places. I know after high school people usually lose their friends and that’s really scary to think about, but I’m going to miss seeing all of my friends.”
