On Saturday September 23, RBHS held its annual Homecoming dance. Students saw the Homecoming court having the time of their lives on the dance floor. The court shared a mutual respect for one another.

The 2017-2018 Homecoming court included seniors Coretta Dishmon, Kaitlin Gaynor, Radka Pribyl Pierdinock, Vasara Kulbis, Joey Jacobs, Erik Roedel, Matt Dwyer, Jason Kenny, Jake Garvey, and John Kosner. 

“It’s not just about the football players anymore. A nerdy kid could win, which would be pretty cool,” said Kenny.

All other nominees wished nothing but the best to their opponents and were satisfied with the results. On Friday, September 22, the King and Queen were crowned at the pep rally.

“I didn’t even vote for myself, I voted for Coretta,” said Homecoming court candidate senior Joey Jacobs.

Dishmon was announced Homecoming Queen along with Dwyer as Homecoming King. 

“It [meant] a lot to me because from my understanding, I [am] the first black Homecoming Queen and [that can] change the face of RB,” said Dishmon.

Dishmon is described as funny, self confident, smart, and trustworthy. She has been involved with Girls Poms, Association of Student Tolerance, Spanish Club and Spanish Honors Society. She has also held a leadership position in Student Association for the past two years, and has participated for three years. Dishmon felt that she deserved the title because she believes that she represents a diverse group of students here at RB.

“It’s an incredible feeling to know that your peers voted for you,” said Dwyer.

Dwyer has been on the RB Track and Field team for the past three years. He’s the Vice President of the RB Choir program, along with being in Madrigals. Dwyer has been holding title of senior class officer for Student Association since his junior year. Dwyer’s family and friends would characterize him as ambitious, funny, and caring.

“Best King and Queen of Homecoming ever,” said Dishmon.
