Our community has seen two of our three schools post impressive records this year and all three have had impressive homecoming festivities!

Dutch Fork’s Homecoming Queen is Miss Lauren Koon (blue dress pictured above). Tonight I’m proud to share her and her homecoming court on Nathan’s News.

Lauren is a Senior and a member of St. Andrews Presbyterian Church .

She’s also a Varsity Cheerleader and a captain of the squad. In addtion to cheering for the Silver Foxes, she cheers for ACX All-Stars.

Her parents are David and Terri Koon.

I’m always wanting to share the accomplishments of the neighbors and friends in our area. Many I witness first-hand, others I need your help to keep me informed!
