Hannah Gampe, representing POPS Extension, was crowned the 2018 Princess.

It’s such an honor to represent Tyrone as the 2018 Homecoming Princess. I was shocked when my name was announced. I was overwhelmed with happiness and so much love from everyone from school and the community. All of the nominees are amazing, beautiful young women, crown or no crown,” said princess Hannah Gampe. 

FFA’s Haylee Blowers was second runner-up, and Youth Action Network’s Olivia Watson was the third runner-up.

My homecoming experience was pretty positive but definitely a little stressful. Overall I will cherish those moments when I look back at my high school career. I’m also really happy I took this experience while having all the support from my FFA family to try and raise enough money as I could to help one of our members and his family in a time of need.  That is just a little of what FFA is about, helping others. I hope this showed our members and other people outside of FFA that we can do anything to help others and work as a unified group. I’m very thankful for all the support I had from my family and friends,” said first runner-up Haylee Blowers. 

Second runner-up Olivia Watson was proud to represent YAN.

I feel honored to be able to represent such a great group, especially one that I am actively a part of and am constantly doing something for. From the advisers to all the students in the club, it is a meaningful and fun group to be involved in and I encourage everyone to be in YAN,” said YAN nominee Olivia Watson. 

The 2017 Homecoming Queen Mckenzie Johnson was present to pass down the title of Queen to Kylee Gooding.

“Although I am a bit surprised that she won because she’s only been here at Tyrone for eleven months, I am ecstatic. Kylee was voted a team captain by all of her teammates on the volleyball team. Then, in addition to being nominated, homecoming queen speaks to her character. People and her peers gravitate to her. She’s a cheerleader and motivates those around her. She is most deserving of being recognized as the queen and I cannot be more excited for her and her accomplishments,” said head Volleyball coach Mike Kraft.   

At this years homecoming, 22 girls were nominated from multiple sports and activities. The ladies were judged in multiple categories, including a popular vote, personal interview, and charity fundraising.

Unfortunately, the excitement from the ceremony did not carry on throughout the night leaving the Golden Eagles with a tough loss of 28-13 against the Golden Tigers.
