Homecoming Crowned

On Friday, September 17, Student Council sponsored the annual Fall Homecoming. The coronation was held before the start of the Paoli vs. West Washington game.

The underclassmen nominated one boy and one girl to represent each class. Later in the week, high school students voted for their favorite senior pair to be Queen and King.

“I am beyond thankful. I can’t thank anyone enough. The support and encouragement I got made it feel like a dream!” said Atkins.
