2020: What A School Year
With 2020 nearly out the door, we can honestly say we’ve never experienced one like it. For local schools nearly everything normal was disrupted. However some events happened just as scheduled. Although original dates might have changed the actual events occurred. One such event which sticks out in our mind was the crowning of the Tyler Consolidated Homecoming Queen.
What usually draws the largest crowd of the year to Silver Knights stadium, homecoming 2020 was a scaled down event due to COVID restrictions, but the big deal for the night went on as promised. Senior Sadie Nichols wooed the crowd as she was named Homecoming Queen 2020. With 11 beautiful Silver Knights making up the court Sadie received top honors to add to her impressive awards earned during her four years at TCHS.
While Homecoming Queen 2020 is one for the books, like every Queen before her, she will always cherish the moment.
While it is often said that the winning team spoiled the homecoming for the home team, not even the loss against a good Wirt County team can erase the joy felt by the 2020 Queen and her court.
Sadie is also the senior class historian, student council secretary, varsity four year letter winner in volleyball, two year letter winner in softball, math field day county level top 10, Rachel Carson Scholarship Award, Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership award, Governors Honor Academy award, Elks Legion Essay award, Heisman athletic award, community service award and a host of other honors, including WV State band festival superior rating and solo and ensemble excellent rating.
This is a preview of just one of the 2020 highlights for Tyler County as we head into a new year, next week we hope to present to our readers a preview of the top stories of 2020.
