I am super excited about it because being King during senior year, right before I leave Walker, it is kind of cool. It is nice knowing I am going to leave knowing I got something like this which is pretty cool. I definitely wasn’t expecting it, they called out my name and I was like ‘shout out to all my fans’. But everybody who voted for me- that’s awesome because I did not expect this and it definitely made my day, well more than my day, the school year so far so that was pretty cool.” When Riley Cohen heard that she had won homecoming Queen, she said “I was congratulating Andrew on king because he really deserves it and wasn’t expecting to hear my name at all. It took me really off guard and my mouth literally dropped open”.
