Senior Homecoming Queen: Madison Kirkland

Were you confident that you were going to win [Homecoming Queen]? 

I was a little confident because because a lot of people kept telling me I was going to win. I wasn’t 100% percent sure though, and I also thought everyone on the Court was well-known and had a good chance.

What was your reaction when you heard you won?

I was very excited and I was appreciative my friends voted for me.

What was the reaction of your family and friends?

A lot of people kept telling me I deserved it, and everyone kept calling me ‘Queen.’

What do you feel was the most important factor that got you votes?

[The fact] that I was campaigning with Malik Keaton and I posted pictures on Instagram that said ‘Vote for Malik and Madison.’ We wanted to [campaign together] because he’s DECA president and I am an officer.

What would you say to other students aiming to become Homecoming Queen?

I would tell them to stay confident and tell all their friends to have their IDs and vote for them. I would also tell them to campaign with another person.
