Former king, Jeff Dighton, was in attendance to crown the new queen. Last year’s king, Paul Solomon, was unable to attend because he is a part of the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. Parents and students were on the edge of their seats as Dighton hovered the tiara over top of the queen candidates. After all the anticipation, Kennedey Bass was crowned 2015 Homecoming queen. She was very emotional when asked about how she felt about receiving such an honor.
“I was just looking at my parents the whole time” said Bass, “I honestly thought they had already crowned it, but then I felt it on my head and I burst into tears. I was just so happy.”
Former queen, Ellen Titman, had the honors of crowning this year’s king. Last year’s recipient Titman held the crown above the candidates and finally rested it on the head of 2015 Homecoming king Nolan Newcomb.
Newcomb was nervous prior to being crowned. “I was very nervous, but the nerves went away once I was crowned and it was pretty cool.” said Newcomb.
The other candidates all hugged Newcomb and Bass and congratulated them. Although they may have been disappointed, they smiled and were thankful they were selected for the court.
The rest of the assembly featured a dance battle between the parents and staff of BHS, and students. There was also a performance by the drill team, cheerleaders, and the powderpuff cheerleaders. The assembly concluded with the premiere of the 2015 Dance Dub Video.
