Hester has officially named its Homecoming Queens. After a desperate bid by competitor Lauren Cooper to malign the girls by questioning their couple status, Homecoming Co-Queen Amy Raudenfeld put any doubt to rest – by planting a passionate kiss on girlfriend Karma Ashcroft. While this reporter remained calm, the same could not be said for the rest of the student body, which erupted into applause and tears of joy.
The pressure is on now for social chair Shane Harvey, as students look to him to spearhead what will most likely be the most attended and talked about dance in Hester’s history. And as for Ashcroft and Raudenfeld – it is clear from the kiss they shared that their newfound publicity and fame has not put any strain on their relationship. Hester’s new sweethearts are the real deal.
