Homecoming King and Queen crowned
By Nathan French
Friday’s homecoming loss to Childress was disappointing, but true wolf pack spirit was alive and well for Friday evening’s homecoming festivities. The stadium was bedecked in purple and gold, with attendees in full wolf pride. Purple and gold clothing splendored from the outstanding crowd amid the bleachers. The turnout was astounding with bleachers being full, and the parking lot resembling a car lot at full capacity.
All King and Queen candidates looked great and did a great job representing the DHS school body. The candidates were escorted onto the field by their parents, and anticipation built as the 2009 DHS Homecoming King and Queen were announced. The freshman nominated Queen Candidate Kelsea Kae Weatherly was named homecoming queen, and king went to sophomore nominated Jefferson Drew Abla.
Kelsea Kae Weatherly is the 18-year-old daughter of Kim Weatherly. Kelsea recounted that favorite things included “going to church, talking, listening to music, hanging out with friends, and worshipping.” Kelsea is an active member of the First Baptist Church. Kelsea plans to attend college upon graduation and to travel on mission work devoted to orphans. Upon being questioned on what she liked about herself, Kelsea stated she believes her personality to be one of her strongest assets.
