First the crowns, then dancing


Senior Corrigan Brown was crowned Coronation queen at the yearly tradition  put on by the junior class as a fundraiser for prom.

“I was honored to just be nominated but I was more excited when I got queen,” senior Corrigan Brown said. “It was very honorable. It was one of the highlights of my senior year. Overall it was very fun and a memory I will always remember.”

Much preparation went into putting on this year’s coronation. There were rehearsals, decorating and script writing, as well as choreography.  Coronation was directed by drill team director Keri Pierce.

“I was a duchess and an MC so I was felt really honored to be apart of this tradition that I know has been going on forever,” junior Shelby Cooper said. “It’s really special because it showcases everything Lindale has to offer and being able to present that to the community was just really cool.”

Duchesses and escorts are chosen from every club and organization that Lindale has to offer.

“I was a duchess for the boys basketball team,” senior Ashlynn Skaggs said. “My favorite part of coronation was hearing the clapping as my escort and I walked out on stage. It made me feel special. It meant a lot to me to be able to represent the boys basketball team considering they made it to round two of playoffs. I was very honored.”
