In ceremonies held held Sept. 30 during halftime of the Blue Demons' football game against visiting Sun Valley, Julia Beldyk, the senior class secretary and captain of the Kennett High School tennis team, was named Homecoming queen, and Luke Beeson was named Homecoming king.
Beldyk and Breeson were among the ten Kennett students who were voted by their fellow senior classmates to make up this year's Homecoming Court. Other members of the court included Edwin Castaneda, Tori Hodges, Michael Bellino, Megan Marson, Ben Skross, Naomi Simonson, Matthew Yeldell and Maggie O'Sullivan.
The naming of the king and queen served as a highlight of this year's Homecoming Week at Kennett, in part because the school's traditional parade was canceled due to inclement weather. On Sept. 26, students showed their pride for their favorite team by wearing sports attire. On Sept. 27, students wore decade-themed clothing, and on Sept. 28, they wore attire that celebrated their heritage, culture and nationality.
To recognize those who are fighting cancer, students were asked to wear colors that represented four separate conditions. Freshmen wore glitter in gold to fight pediatric cancer; sophomores wore purple in recognition of those battling Hodgkin's Lymphoma; juniors wore blue to acknowledge those fighting prostate cancer; and seniors wore black to acknowledge those with melanoma.
