Junior Kelsey Krigbaum will be crowned the first Magazine High School football homecoming queen before Friday night’s game against Decatur. The coronation ceremony will begin at 6:30 p.m.

The Magazine School Board approved the addition of the event when it met in July. The idea was brought to the board by high school principal Randy Bryan on behalf of the school’s Rules and Traditions Committee.

The committee is comprised of four faculty members and the club and class presidents.

“It’s something the kids really wanted,” school superintendent Brett Bunch said last week.

The addition of the football homecoming will have no effect on the basketball homecoming which is typically held in December or January of each season.

Mirroring the basketball event, the court of royalty consists of a queen, two princesses and six maids representing classes seven through 12.

The full court for the first homecoming along with Krigbaum is Princess Hannah Smith, Princess Emily Staton, Senior Maid Courtney Stone, Junior Maid Destiny Smith, Sophomore Maid Lauren Littleton, Freshman Maid Salena Yang, Eighth Grade Maid Brooklyn Krigbaum and Seventh Grade Maid Hannah Richardson.
