This year’s Oswego High School pep assembly took place on Oct. 6 and carried on many of the traditional activities, including the announcement of homecoming king and queen. This year’s winners were seniors Laithen Webber and Mimi Schenkel.
During the previous week, OHS seniors voted who they wanted as part of their homecoming court. This year’s court consisted of five potential kings and five potential queens, all seniors. The nominees for queen were Janiya Chatman, Haidyn Kapusinski, Kassie Nanninga, Julianna (Mimi) Schenkel, and Mia Diaz; for king, Ethan Anderson, Maxwell Niesman, Diego Jacquez, Laithen Webber, and Peyton Brugger.
After being crowned, Webber and Schenkel were still in shock, but ecstatic and in awe of their win.
“It’s so breathtaking. I was just prepared for anyone’s name but mine, but then once it was said, I was awestruck” Schenkel said. “I didn’t know what to say; it didn’t even register at first.”
Schenkel is involved in our school’s athletic training department and takes part in many of the football games. Webber is also involved in many of our school activities, including Commotion and choir.
”I don’t even know how to put it into words…I’ve been dreading it all day. People have been telling me, ‘I’m nervous for you,’” Webber said. “Now that it’s finally over with and I won, it’s such a relieving feeling…now that we have won, I think the only thing to do is make the best of it while we still can.”
Both Schenkel and Webber are ready to dance the night away at the homecoming dance, which will take place this Saturday at OHS at 7 p.m.
