DHS homecoming queen: beautiful inside and out

On a crisp Halloween Eve in Munson Stadium, Denison High School bestowed Homecoming Queen honors on Micaela Macedo, a DHS senior whose peers and teachers describe her as “smart, kind, hard-working and talented…beautiful inside and out.”

This year’s homecoming events took place during an ongoing pandemic that has limited stadium capacity to allow for social distancing, prompting ­­ Micaela to first express gratitude for the safety and health of family, friends and fans.

“We are all so fortunate to just be here tonight,” said Macedo. “I can’t begin to say how thankful I am that we can gather safely and still celebrate homecoming, even though we have to wear our face shields. On my way to the stadium this evening, I thought of all the fun that homecoming brings…and then I thought of the people whose lives have been devastated by this pandemic. It makes me realize how important it is to appreciate the things in life that cost nothing but mean everything.”

DHS Lead Counselor Carrie Boettger said she was so impressed Friday night by Micaela, as a person, a homecoming queen and a leader. “As soon as Micaela was crowned queen, she had a job to do. She carefully climbed up on the directors stand to conduct the band in her formal gown. Very cool!”

Micaela is the daughter of ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Orlando and Esperanza Macedo. During her tenure at Denison High School, she has been an active and involved member of the DHS Band for all four years, serving two years as Drum Major while also helping a Scott Middle School musician improve her flute skills. Micaela is also a two-year member of the National Honor Society where she currently serves as Parliamentarian, a one-year member of the InterAct Club, and a member of the Fellowship of Christian Musicians. Micaela plans to major in Public Health at a four-year university on a pre-med track following graduation from Denison High School, where she currently ranks in the top 5% of her class. ­­­­­­­­­­­­­

“Micaela is an amazing, smart, talented and beautiful young lady who plans to become a physician and help others. She has a great future in front of her,” said DHS Principal Dr. Cavin Boettger. “Micaela has been involved in virtually every aspect of student life during her four years at DHS, always smiling and working hard and helping others, always making a positive and lasting impact on her school and community. She’s a do-er and a leader…and we’re all just extremely proud that she is Denison High School’s 2020 Homecoming Queen.”

First runner-up honors went to DHS senior Kirsten Cruiz. Second runner-up was Madison Broadway.
