The homecoming duchesses for this year’s homecoming court have been selected, and this year’s queen will be chosen Sept. 28 at the Henderson Lion Stadium.
“The young ladies selected by the student body as duchesses on the Homecoming Court are wonderful representatives for Henderson High School,” homecoming sponsor Rachel McGinnis said.
Freshman Ally Brooks and freshman Alyssa Perry will be representing their class. For every duchess, her homecoming experience is marked by rules and recognitions.
“No stilettos may be worn and I must be on the field by 6:30 pm,” Perry said. “My favorite part of being on Homecoming Court is having the opportunity to represent my class and the honor of being recognized in front of our whole town.”
For the sophomore duchesses, MicahAnne Castles and Emma Cross have been selected.
“I know and am good friends with most of the other duchesses,” Castles said. “Because of Jesus and Emma Coleman, I have been given the opportunity to be honored on the homecoming court.”
Juniors duchesses Raquel Cruz and Ava Rockey are looking forward to homecoming night.
“It’s an amazing feeling when they call your name,” and you’re walking down the field and you hear all the cheering in the stadiums,” Cruz said. “My escort is going to be my brother.”
Seniors duchesses are Carnesha Beck, Resha Hall and Delaney Lee. They are moved by the opportunity to be this year’s duchesses.
“I was kind of surprised but also really excited,” Lee said. “It’s a huge honor to be a duchess and it means a lot to me that my classmates would nominate me to be on the homecoming court again for another year.”
