Homecoming returns pretty much to normal Monday evening when Windom Area High School kicks off Homecoming Week 2021 with the crowning of the school’s king and queen.
Coronation has been moved to 7 p.m., from its originally announced starting time of 6:30 p.m. The ceremony will be held in the Gold Gym with admission $2 or the purchase of a $1 homecoming button.
The theme of this year’s coronation is “Light Up the Night.”
Candidates for queen are seniors Saije Galer, Vanessa Garcia, Erika Lopez, Amelia Rivera, Kendyl Sammons and Sydney Skarphol.
King candidates are seniors Dillon Evers, Vance Koch, Evan Mathis, Kinn Oilouch, Zach Squires and Carter Vancura.
After a November 2020 homecoming that was memorable for masks, physical distancing and a “ta-da” type crowning, Windom will return to a traditional elimination process for fall homecoming. Freshmen prince and princess, Nick Espenson and Charlee Huska, will eliminate candidates.
Crownbearers will be Teigen Burmeister and Claire Weckop, while emcees will be Makenna McNamara and Isabel Mendoza Lopez.
