Even with all the changes to the homecoming celebration this year due to Covid, Dell Rapids High School was able to hold their Coronation on Monday, October 12th. It was a shortened event this year, but a new homecoming king and queen were crowned.
This year’s Dell Rapids Royalty Candidates were Colin Rentz, Becky Dorn, Coby Maeschen, Sami Schmidt, Logan Anderson, Kat Fletcher, Connor Rentz, and Sam Price.
Prior to the crowning of the King and Queen, Superintendent Dr. Summer Schultz said in her remarks, “This is quite a crew right here in front of you. If I had to go through a year like we are going through, I couldn’t pick a better senior class. And when you’re chosen to be in the homecoming royalty court, that shows that your peers respect you, and in a year like this, they are looking for any sort of normalcy and any sort of leadership that they can lean on. Congratulations to all of you for being those people that your peers and the entire high school has picked.”
Last year’s King and Queen, Karsen Welbig and Mallory Haak crowned the 2020 Homecoming King and Queen, Logan Anderson and Kat Fletcher.
