Kamora Johnson has a colorful page to add to her life's chapter at North Augusta High School, having been named as the 2019 homecoming queen.
The student body's vice president, also known as the varsity cheerleading captain, was crowned at halftime of the Yellow Jackets' game versus Airport. She is aiming to attend the University of South Carolina and pursue a degree in public health, with a minor in biology.
The 2018 queen, Dayjah Young, returned to honor her successor. Young, who was also Johnson's predecessor as the Jackets' cheerleading captain, is now studying at South Carolina State University.
Nearest to her in votes were J'Mani Ingram, the first runner-up; and Macey Hughes, the second runner-up. Their neighbors in the honor court included Carson Kelly, MeLena Bush, Taylor Darville, Ashley Herrington, A'Mia Hill, Grayson Johnson, Deja Tregre, Riley Morris, Saylor Logan, Haleigh Brownlee, Katie Ashe and Abby Ashe.
Halftime visitors also included several visitors with a few more decades to their credit, as members of the school's 1969 class gathered on the crowd as a part of their 50th anniversary celebration, following on the heels of their reunion, held in early June. The longest-distance traveler of the bunch – both in June and October – was Lindy Funkhauser, who is now an attorney in Phoenix.
