Candidates lead by example in many areas at BHS
The Homecoming Candidates 2023

This year at BHS there are 6 Homecoming Candidates, 3 kings and 3 queens. The queen candidates are Nora Prather, Harper Schoendaller and Fisayo Afonja. The king candidates include Talan Torrez, Luke Hayes and Kaden Long.   

“I love that our senior candidates are elected by their peers and teachers. I believe it is an honor to be recognized and I love that our students are involved in so many various activities and are able to represent so many different groups,” Assistant Principal Kelli Haeffner said.

Our school is honored to have these individuals representing not only our senior class but our school as a whole. 

“Being a candidate to me is being someone who leads by example in an involved, but still humble way,” Prather said. 

Prather is excited for this new opportunity.  

“I was really surprised when my name got called. I never really thought of myself as someone who would get chosen as a candidate,” Prather said. 

Prather is looking forward to hopefully being chosen as queen. 

“Being a candidate means that I get to represent the student body on a whole other level,” Schoendaller said. It is very rewarding to know that my fellow classmates view me as a person they would want to represent them as a whole.” 

Schoendaller has been looking forward to this opportunity for a while.

“I have made it my goal in high school to get involved with a diverse number of clubs so that when the opportunity arises, I can represent them all,” Schoendaller said. “I hope to make my class proud by putting in the extra effort to make our homecoming float a huge success and dress up everyday to the fullest to hopefully give our student body and faculty a good laugh.”

Schoendaller’s hard work and dedication for this year’s homecoming float and spirit week is paying off. 

“It means a lot to me to be chosen by the senior class and the staff as a candidate,” Afonja said. 

Afonja is shocked and thrilled for this opportunity.

“I wasn’t expecting for my name to get called as a candidate because there are a lot of good candidate options for queen,” Afonja said. 

Afonja is very excited.

“Being a candidate in general has been something I have wanted since my freshman year. This opportunity means a lot to me because I’ve wanted this since my first homecoming game,” Torrez said.

Torrez is happy that he finally is able to have this chance to become king.

“Many people told me they were voting for me so I think it was much less of a surprise than I anticipated,” Torrez said.

Torrez is feeling very honored and recognized.

“To me being a candidate is a very exciting and a fun opportunity,” Hayes said.

Hayes is stunned but happy for this new opportunity. 

“I was very shocked and surprised when I heard my name get called,” Hayes said. I never imagined people would think of me for something like this.”

Hayes is very happy. 

“I was very surprised when I got the email that I was being selected as a candidate,” Long said.

Long is looking forward to this opportunity. 

“I’ve always tried to be involved with my class and go to as many school events as possible so it’s cool to be able to show and represent myself to the entire school for a homecoming week,” Long said.
