Homecoming 2016 Oct. 7, and among those selected to the court is Amanda Rother, who said she is “honored” to be nominated for the chance to be queen.
“It’s a really good feeling to have your classmates vote for you and support you the whole time,” Rother said. “I wasn’t expecting to be nominated honestly; I was really suprised and excited.”
Rother, who described herself as “always being nice to people” and not “judgemental,” shares the court with cheerleading mates Kaitlyn Walch and Keera Frye.
“I’m excited to get to experience this with the other cheerleaders, because we’ve been friends for years and I think that they both really deserve to be on court as well,” said Rother.
One of the biggest “perks” of being on Homecoming court is participating in the annual Scottdale Fall Festival parade. Although disappointed she was unable to ride on top of the car due to weather issues, Rother says, “It felt good having people cheer me on and being able to throw candy to the little kids.”
Rother says she will be “extremely happy and surprised” if she won Homecoming queen.
Outside of the court, Rother participates in varsity cheerleading and is a hostess at Leo & Son’s Grille 31 in Mt. Pleasant, as well as hanging out with friends.
“I’m just trying to enjoy my senior year,” says Rother.
