Morgan Koppelman and Logan Maanum were crowned as the 2022 Homecoming Queen and King on Monday morning at Park Rapids Area High School.

According to queen and king candidate biographies read during the coronation ceremony, Koppelman plans to go to college and study marketing. Her favorite school memory was winning the “Ender’s Game” competition with the Narwhals in Mr. Claussen’s class. Her favorite class was college algebra with Mrs. Brand.

Maanum’s plan after graduation is to study business management at a four-year college. His favorite school memory was friends Matt and Isaac watching pigeons in Mrs. Brand’s class. His favorite class was also college algebra with Mrs. Brand.

Students came onstage to model the week’s spirit wear, including “Little Me,” the Adam Sandler baggy look, and such “Why Do I Own This” wackiness as a plush shark’s head. Pianist Jillian Neubauer provided musical interludes.
