Harrison named homecoming queen

The old Bulldog had a lot of memories on his mind as he walked his granddaughter onto the field.

Otis Harrison, who played football for Thomson High School in 1946-49, grasped Hope's hand as they walked and softly kissed her cheek after she was named THS' 2005 Homecoming Queen.

"I wish my son could have been here," Mr. Harrison said after the ceremony. "But she's been my queen all the time, she deserved it."

Miss Harrison said her father died when she was young, so her grandfather filled in as her escort on her special night.

"I was so excited, that's why I was crying, because I couldn't believe it," Miss Harrison said.

It was also an emotional experience for the 2004 Homecoming Queen, Tiffany Daggett, who was escorted onto the field by THS Principal Rudy Falana.

"I can't explain it in words, but it has been great to be queen," said Miss Daggett, who is now a freshman at the University of Georgia. "I was crying because it's over for me now."

The 10 candidates for the 2005 queen, described by the announcer as "the 10 most beautiful young ladies in the CSRA" were Tiffany Fullwood, Keturah Jackson, Tykia Key, Courtney Hampton, Kimberly Hope Harrison, Amber Nicole Johnson, Kendra Blanche' Lazenby, TeErika Nikesha Dysha' Leaks, Amanda Leigh Stewart and Shannon Williams.

Fourth runner up was Miss Johnson, third runner up was Miss Williams, second runner up was Miss Lazenby, and first runner up was Miss Key.

"I'm happy," said Miss Johnson. "I'm on the court and that's an honor."

Hope is the daughter of Sherri and Jay Smith and the late Phil Harrison. She is the granddaughter of Otis and Dot Harrison, and the late Roland and Dottie Berry.
