Weber Crowned Homecoming Queen, Paulsen Crowned Homecoming King

    A couple hundred community members enjoyed a gorgeous Sunday evening in the MVAOCOU parking lot for a tailgate party which kicked off the Homecoming celebration for this year. The student council served pork sandwiches and hot dogs, chips, beans, and drinks to the Ram supporters. Bags and giant Jenga were also available to play to pass time until the coronation.
    The evening continued inside where many loquacious audience members awaited for the coronation to begin. All fell quiet to emcees Katy Krohn and Dallas Weed who announced the Tune Squad who performed "Seven Bridges." Krohn and Weed then presented the Homecoming court (freshmen Emily Kovarna and Kolby Scott, sophomores Teresa Johnson and Gaige Elwell, juniors Hannah Bohm and Ben Schram, and seniors Cameron Brenner and Dylan Blake, Ellen Mallory and Blake Paulsen, Lindsey Sisco and Weston Beeson, Abbi Boysen and Cayden Henderson, and Lexi Weber and Kyran Morrow). The 2018 royalty (Haley Drenkhahn and Bryce Kafton) crowned the new royalty. Receiving the queen tiara was Lexi Weber, daughter of Michelle and Brett Weber of Danbury. Receiving the king crown was Blake Paulsen, son of Kristi and Rob Paulsen of Mapleton.
    The king and queen along with the rest of the royalty will preside over the rest of the Homecoming events, culminating with the football game against West Monona.
    Complete Homecoming coverage will be in next week's Review.
