“It is our pleasure to inform you that your daughter has been nominated for Rock Canyon High School’s 2010 Homecoming Royalty Court!” So began the McCarty family’s, CPN II residents, voyage into royalty when their Rock Canyon High School (RCHS) freshman daughter, Abby, was named one of the finalists for the homecoming court. The Homecoming week, which took place between October 4 and October 9, was packed full of regal activities for the young freshman finalist.
RCHS students voted to nominate three girls and three boys from each class. Activities for the royal court included their announcement at the Homecoming Assembly on October 7, the royal crowning which took place at the RCHS varsity football game halftime on October 7 at Shea Stadium, the opportunity to ride on the class float during the homecoming parade on October 8.
McCarty was in for a treat at the homecoming halftime when she was announced the freshman winner! The royalty candidates were also announced and re-crowned at the homecoming dance on Saturday, October 9.
