Augusta Preparatory Day School has had homecoming queens before, but Shelby Hamilton was the first to be crowned beneath the lights of a Friday night football game.
Hamilton, on the arm of her father Hugh Hamilton, was named this year’s homecoming queen during a halftime ceremony at Augusta Prep’s game Friday night.
Still reeling, Hamilton said being named queen came as quite a shock.
“It’s really kind of nerve-wracking,” she said. “I really had no idea this would happen.”
