Every year, OHS continues the long lasting tradition of crowning a Homecoming King and Queen. This historical event inspires school spirit and gives students an opportunity to vote for who they would like to see as royalty. At 9:30 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 17, OHS announced that Senior Nathan Buegler had been selected by the student body as the 2018 Homecoming King.

Buegler moved to Owatonna prior to his eighth grade year and immediately found a passion for cross country running. Not only did he find it to be exhilarating, but it was a great way to socialize in a new town, make new friends, and is something he loves to participate in. Buegler is active in several musical ventures, such as band, choir and spreading christmas cheer as an OHS caroler. He has always loved music, first joining band in sixth grade, later finding his passion for singing, and the rest is history. During his free time, one could find Buegler hanging out with friends, playing ultimate frisbee and spending time outdoors enjoying the beautiful weather.

Homecoming Royalty is an iconic moment for many high school students across the country. Being king, Buegler said, “It really means a lot that people voted for me and is definitely something I will remember. I’m really excited for the parade and all the events that go on throughout the week.” Homecoming is a special occasion for students throughout the district, but it’s definitely a bit more unique for the King and Queen.

The King and Queen will showcased at the parade on Friday and a special half time presentation.
