There is new royalty walking the halls of Dawson County High School.
During halftime of the Tigers' football game on Friday, Sept. 10, the school named their new 2021 homecoming king and queen.
Seniors Braedon Hubbard and Blake Smith were crowned the 2021 homecoming king and queen by 2020 homecoming king Max Tierny and Dawson County High School principal Michael Negley. 2020 homecoming queen, Molly Muenchen, was unable to attend the event due to a scheduling conflict with her Valdosta State soccer schedule.
Hubbard is involved with the football team and bass fishing team. He has started as a defensive back the last three years for the Tigers and was a Georgia Bass Fishing Association state champion last year, alongside teammate Buddy Benson.
Smith plays for the Dawson County tennis team and is involved with multiple organizations at the school, including the National Honor Society, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and much more.
Every class was represented at the ceremony. Here are the nominees throughout grade level:
