Homecoming queens

The Homecoming candidates for 2023 were introduced at the Spirit Day pep rally.

Every year we have the opportunity to celebrate homecoming, and every year different girls run and take on the opportunity to end up winning homecoming queen. But what is the process behind these campaigns. 

 

Karns high school homecoming is different then other schools. Instead of the student body voting for homecoming queen they raise money for it. Anyone can run for a club, but not everyone will walk the field.  Each candidate is required to raise at least $1,000 to walk the field. Raising money isn’t for the faint of heart; it is a huge commitment that takes lots of time. 

 

“I sold shirts this whole year, one had the beaver logo on it while the other was an official homecoming shirt,” said the football team’s homecoming candidate Evelyn McKneely. 

 

McKneely decided to run for homecoming because she felt like it was a tradition for every senior cheerleader to run. When looking for a club to run for she decided to go with football because it has been such a huge part of her high school career.

 

“I’ve always wanted to run for homecoming queen so when I had the chance I took the opportunity,” said track star candidate Hannah Little when asked what influenced her to run.

 

Little’s fundraiser idea was to sell baked goods.When deciding which club to raise money for she chose the track team, since she is a track star here at Karns High School.

 

“I”ve always liked it and I wanted to run for band. I like the thought of raising money and I enjoy fundraisers so when I was nominated I was really excited.” Hanson said. 

 

The last girl that was interviewed was Avery Hansosn. She’s the running candidate for the band. She states that she got donations from the karns community which helped her gain the total of $4,423 dollars.

Although we won’t know the homecoming queen until Friday night, we wish every candidate luck. Each candidate was very dedicated to fundraise for their club and to win homecoming queen.
