More traditions being made at HVA: homecoming king and queen

Friday, Oct. 30 was a very eventful night at Hardin Valley Academy. It was the first game we played Karns as a varsity football team. It was our first Second Harvest Can Food Drive, and it was also the first “homecoming” dance.

Lastly, and most important to the seniors, it was the announcement of who won Hardin Valley Academy’s first ever King and Queen. Even though there are not people to ‘come home,’ these seniors did not want to miss out.

The HVA Royal Court consisted of four King candidates and nine Queen candidates. Korrie Barnes, Joe Buckner, E.J. Dutton and Chad Smith were among the four king candidates; and Kemia Amin, Katelyn Christian, Elizabeth Gray, Ariel Hunter, Hannah Scott, Emma Silver-Alford, Darian Todd, Lexi Wachter and Morgan Weldon were representing the queen candidates. From the displays up on the wall to a meet and greet one morning, it was obvious how important it was to these select seniors to run.

Morgan Weldon, a member on the Court said, “Each candidate on that field worked extremely hard. We all put our hearts and souls into the competition... Homecoming was a great experience and I am glad I was able to be a part of it!”

Mr. Lee, the man in charge of this whole experience, was very impressed with how smoothly everything went. “I felt like we could not have started off with a better group of students.” He is right, considering everything the candidates had to go through.

At half time, the results were finally announced. King runner-up was Korrie Barnes, and queen runner-up was Kemia Amin.

The first ever 2009 Hardin Valley Academy King and Queen is Joe Buckner and Hannah Scott.

Joe was so excited about his success. “The feeling was almost surreal, and I thought I was going to pass out! This was among the happiest moments of my life and something I will remember forever!”

Hannah was also extremely pumped about her win and said, “I am so excited to be able to represent the school and student body! We have worked so hard to serve the community as well as the school.

“I am so proud to represent Christ, who has been the source of my motivation and drive this year, and can’t thank him enough for this wonderful opportunity to shine for Him as Hardin Valley Academy’s first Queen.”

Congratulations to Joe, Hannah and everybody that was on Court. You are admired by everyone at HVA.
