 At the Lakeview High School Homecoming football game on Sept. 29, Austin Zeiter, ‘18 and Jessica Woodside, ‘18 were crowned Homecoming king and queen.

  Lakeview’s Homecoming king and queen process started out when students `nominated seniors that they believed best represent the school. Out of hundreds of seniors, Zeiter and Woodside were nominated.

  “When I found out I was in the running, I was really surprised. I didn’t think that many people would know my name,” stated Woodside.

  Woodside’s constant work in Huskies with Heart and National Honor Society made her stand out, as she is highly involved in the school and community.

  “I enjoy helping out the community, and I find it very rewarding,” she said.

  As time went on, students voted for one king and one queen out of eight total nominees. While elections were held, Zeiter found himself questioning what the outcome would be.

  “I did not think I would win because the other three guys all deserved it just as much as I did,” he stated.

  Before Zeiter and Woodside knew it, it was halftime of Lakeview’s annual football game. They stood frantically awaiting the final outcome of king and queen.

  “When they were announcing the winners I was looking at all the kids in the student section. I was just hoping I would not trip and fall if I became king,” Zeiter recalled.

  The next moment was one that Woodside and Zeiter would never forget. As the announcer shouted their names, the queen and king were overcome with joy.

  Woodside remembered, “I was a little nervous. I was holding my dad’s hand, and when they announced my name I hugged him. My grandma came from up north, and I could hear her screaming.”

  “My friends on the homecoming court congratulated me, and we all hugged. My friends in the student section started an ‘Austin Zeiter’ chant, so I guess they were all pretty excited, just as I was,” Zeiter, leader of the Dog Pound, mentioned.

  Even though Lakeview’s king and queen do not know each other all that well, they were both extremely excited for each other.

  “I was very happy that Jessica won. She deserved it so much, and she put her heart into trying to win,” stated Zeiter.

  Similarly, Woodside said, “I was really happy to see Austin win. Although I don’t talk to him that much, he is kind to other people.”

  To Woodside, being Homecoming queen means one thing.

  “Homecoming queen means I’m a good person, and it makes me feel good because people think I’m a good representative of what Lakeview is,” she mentioned.

  Not only are Zeiter and Woodside good people, they excel in the classroom.

  “One thing about Austin is that every time I talk to him I’m in a better mood. Austin is one of those people that makes you happy just to be around. I had him as a freshman in my physics class, and he was friends with everyone in class. He’s an all-around great kid,” stated physics teacher, Stephanie Givinsky.

  History teacher, Nicole Rakozy commented on Woodside’s stardome in her classroom.

  “Jessica is always willing to go above and beyond what’s expected. She’s a real role model for excellence,” she explained.
