Crowned by last year’s Homecoming King, Jeb Schyzm, Madeline Kay was named the 2019 Homecoming Queen. Madeline has attended Pima since her kindergarten year. She has played volleyball all four years of high school and has served on both student council as well as the seminary council for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Madeline plans to play volleyball at EAC next year and hoped to marry a nice “rich” young man. Her advice to underclassmen, “Be involved as much as you can and have fun with everything you do.”

Returning to crown the Homecoming King was last year’s Homecoming Queen Alani Blair. Blair placed the crown on Alec Judd. Alec has spent his entire academic career attending Pima schools. Alec has played both football and basketball while attending Pima High. Alec has also served on the seminary council.  Alec plans to serve a two-year, full-time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints upon graduation in May. After his mission, Alec wants to return home and “marry the baddie of his dreams.”  His advice to underclassmen, “Don’t tick off Ms. Weech and say nope to dope.”
