Araceli Daza Crowned 2017 Homecoming Queen

On Monday, October 16, the SHS student body gathered in the main gym for the annual 2017 homecoming coronation assembly. The Panthers continue the tradition by showing up in "snazzy" attire as part of the week's spirit theme.

Alumni homecoming queen Lacey Campbell, who graduated in 2008, was the guest speaker and was escorted by Snohomish Panther football player Jaden McClure, who had the highest grade point average of the team at 3.97.

Seniors AhLana Ames and Karl Houtman were the emcees and the flower attendants were Jackson Hill and Darcy Cummings, son and daughter of SHS teachers Jody Hill and Jaci Cummings, respectively.

The princesses of the senior class were Samantha Beeman, Ally Berg, Araceli Daza, Drew Greenhalgh, Emma Lande, Morgan Marshall, Julia Remlinger, Sami Reynolds, Grace Sturlaugson, Joy Winston, and Katelyn Yeoman.

Senior government classes voted the week before the presentation assembly to nominate Daza, Berg, Greenhalgh, Beeman, and Sturlaugson as contenders for this year's homecoming queen.

After each of the princesses had the opportunity to showcase their individual accomplishments and personalities, the school provided the drum roll as all waited in anticipation to finally see Daza’s picture appear on the screen, much to the delight of the student body.

Daza has been involved in Link Crew, Panther Band, Jazz Band, Panther Pals, Art Honors Society, FCCLA, FBLA, RAKE, Knowledge Bowl, Photography Club, Senate, and is currently serving as senior class vice-president. Upon graduation, Daza plans on earning a major in Communications at a four-year-university, travel around the world, find an enjoyable job, and return to Snohomish to start a family of her own.

Daza was escorted by senior Alessandro Squadrito, and will be riding in a convertible Ford Mustang on Friday during the annual Serpentine parade, with the rest of the princesses following.
