Tim’s Big Heart and Daniel’s Big Night Highlight Homecoming

KSCB News - February 13, 2016 8:15 am

It was a story book night at Liberal High School Friday night. On homecoming night, hearts were warm after a selfless gesture. Tim Fitzgerald was announced as the homecoming king Friday night in the Big House in between the girls and boys basketball games. Fitzgerald, in his basketball uniform getting ready for a big WAC matchup with Hays, had been named king. A defining moment in the life of most 17 or 18 year olds. But after crouching and accepting the crown from the five year old crown bearer, Fitzgerald smiled and calmly walked over to homecoming candidate Daniel Rivera and placed the crown on his head giving his classmate the homecoming king distinction. Rivera is a wrestler who has Down’s Syndrome. Rivera, LHS and Garden City wrestling programs were featured during a Catch it Kansas feature earlier this week.

Carolina Limon was named homecoming queen. She is plays for the Lady Redskin basketball team and plays soccer. She recently signed at Butler for soccer.

The king candidates were Tim Fitzgerald, Dennis Nava, Sylman Pando, Alfredo Banuelos, and Daniel Rivera. The queen candidates were Carolina Limon, Karen Banuelos, Katherine Covert, Stephanie Garcia, and Victoria Rios. The crown bearer was Bren Kappelmann and the flower girl was Yazlene Martinez.
