As a herd of fans left the football game against Daniel Boone High School, an announcement blared over the speakers; the homecoming ceremony would commence in the gymnasium of East High School. Attendees of what was once a football game flocked to the stands of East High School to see the crowning of the homecoming queen.

As everyone was awaiting the winners name to be announced, the tension was building off the court and on it. The whole gymnasium was completely silenced. All of the girls looked absolutely stunning. However, when it came to the most votes, the winner of the 2023 Morristown-Hamblen West High School Trojans Homecoming was…. McCullough!
