Senior Mckenzie Johnson was crowned the 2017 Homecoming Queen at Friday night’s game against the Penns Valley Rams at Gray Field.

“I was so shocked when I heard my name and to some extent I still am. But I’m so honored that people thought of me to represent Tyrone for homecoming this year. I can’t thank the people who helped to make this happen enough,” said Johnson, who represented POPS Extension.

Chloe Makdad, representing the Mock Trial team, was crowned the 2017 Princess.

“Homecoming was definitely a positive experience. This year had a great group of girls and I was able to share the experience with a lot of my friends,” said princess Chloe Makdad.

The Eagle Eye’s Morgan Bridges was second runner-up, and Track and the Field team’s Payton Wagner was the third runner-up.

The 2016 Homecoming Queen Toni Burns was present to pass down the title of Queen to McKenzie Johnson.

“It was great to see a number of my “senior singers” in the Homecoming court and I was very happy for McKenzie when she was crowned Queen,” said POPS Extension adviser Laura Harris.

At this years homecoming, 24 girls were nominated from multiple sports and activities. The ladies were judged in multiple categories, including a popular vote, personal interview, and charity fundraising.

“I was so happy I could represent the Eagle Eye, especially since it is my fourth year being a part of it. As Social Media Director, it is the club that I am most actively involved in during the year,” said second runner-up Morgan Bridges.

“I had the most shocked expression on my face. I was like ‘That’s my name! That’s me!’ It was such a great moment, and I was immediately smiling. I am truly honored to win second runner-up,” said Bridges.

“I was happy with just being on the court with everyone, so getting 3rd runner-up was just something to add to the experience,” said third runner-up Payton Wagner.

The excitement and positivity from the ceremony carried on throughout the night, leading to the Golden Eagles win 28-6 over the Penns Valley Rams.
