KENLY — North Johnston High School will crown its homecoming queen on Friday, Oct 19 during a ceremony at halftime of the varsity football game against North Pitt High School.
Members of the homecoming court will include freshmen Nakiya Blue and Emily Beasley; sophomores Kaylyn Boswell, Taylor Jones and Yanet Barrios; juniors Alexis Byrd, Jordan Bass, Hailey Linko and Milianys Cortes; and seniors Taylor Leagan, Molly Bass, Olivia Hobbs, Kimberly Villagran, Logan Sutton, Eleanor Hinnant and Chloe Allen.
For the first time this year, members of the entire homecoming court were chosen by an electronic vote.
Homecoming queen will be chosen by popular vote from members of the court by the senior class. That electronic vote will take place Wednesday, Oct. 17
For the homecoming court ceremony, senior contestants will be escorted by their fathers or other family members and underclassmen will be escorted by North Johnston Air Force Junior ROTC cadets.
“We would like to invite all North Johnston High School graduates and members of the community to our homecoming,” said faculty member and National Honor Society co-adviser Rhonda Greenup.
“I am looking forward to working with this great group of young ladies,” Greenup added. “The students have selected wonderful candidates to represent their grade levels. I know the student body will have a difficult time choosing one from the senior class to be crowned homecoming queen 2018.”
