RHS prin­ci­pal Wes­ley Cupp and 2016 Home­com­ing queen Dal­las O’Con­nor pose for a photo fol­low­ing cer­e­monies.

Rock­mart’s 2016 Home­com­ing queen was an­nounced at half­time of the Sept. 16 game as Dal­las McKin­ley O’Con­nor, who said be­ing on the court it­self was an un­ex­pected honor this year.

“I was sur­prised that I was on the court and that I won for one, and I’m thank­ful,” she said. “Hon­estly, ev­ery­one looked gor­geous, and ev­ery­one who de­served to be on it was, and it was a beau­ti­ful night that I’ll re­mem­ber for­ever.”

The daugh­ter of Deirdre and the late Jeff Miller, she said that she’s ready to move along from high school and get onto col­lege and the work­ing world, keep­ing up her pho­tog­ra­phy busi­ness that she and her sis­ter run to­gether.

“I’m ready to start the sec­ond chap­ter of my life,” she said.

O’Con­nor hopes turn over a new leaf by at­tend­ing ei­ther Ole Miss or the Univer­sity of Ge­or­gia once she grad­u­ates in the spring and pur­sue a de­gree in pho­tog­ra­phy or work to­ward be­com­ing a vet­eri­nar­ian. At the mo­ment, she’s un­de­cided. For now, she just hopes to keep the mem­o­ries alive of the mag­i­cal night she was an­nounced as the Home­co­ing queen.

She was joined on the field by se­nior rep­re­sen­ta­tives Lil­lian Cheyenne Bell, Jada Shenell Brum­be­low, Anna Carolyn Al­lena James, Mag­gie El­iz­a­beth Lindsey, Christina Michelle Robin­son, and Sarah El­iz­a­beth Wil­liams.

Ju­nior, sopho­more and fresh­men rep­re­sen­ta­tives this year were Ros­alee Kathryne Haney, Lindsey Alexis Mel­ton, Mary Ella Owen, Mary El­iz­a­beth Lal­trello, and Va­lerie Cheyenne Wil­liams.
