(RHS) crowned Kiersti Phenow as their new Homecoming Queen Tuesday morning in the school's gymnasium.
RHS's 2010 Queen Isabel Fajardo was on hand to crown the new Phenow. Fajardo also gave a wonderful farewell speech. Also speaking at the ceremony was Richfield Ambassador Molly Coughlin and .
As with many of the student events it's all about the entrance. Many of the candidates and their escorts strutted their way down the red carpet. After the speakers we're finished it was time for the big moment. Everyone looked on as Fajardo walked side to side giving a tease as to who might be crowned. She even crowned herself to break the tension. As she made her way down the row of girls she stopped and placed the crown on Phenow. As the audience roared she realized that she was crowned.
The other nine candidates were: Jade Turgeon, Kellin Swanson, , Bailey Carlson, Courtney Wood, Eylani Sanchez, Stephanie Thammabanevong, Mitzi Aguilar and Rocio Julian.
