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.
