POINT PLEASANT — Lindsey Ludwig and Jared Drewes were named homecoming king and queen ahead of Point Pleasant High School’s homecoming football game.
Chosen by fellow students and staff, both Lindsey and Jared received this honor along with a crown, a sash and flowers.
When asked why they believe they were chosen and how they feel with this honor, Jared said, “I am a kind and caring student who is respectful to everyone. It felt great being selected as Homecoming king because it shows how much the students and teachers recognize me and notice that I’m a good person.”
Lindsey said to The Ocean Star, “I feel I was selected homecoming queen because my classmates see me as a positive attribute to our school community. I feel so honored. It means so much to be recognized by my peers and the Point Borough faculty.”
“To me, homecoming is the night where our town all comes together to support one another. With it also being the same night as Senior Night, it really was an amazing way to experience my last cheer season and last homecoming game. Ever since my sister was Homecoming Queen in 2019/2020, I’ve always wanted to follow in her footsteps and it’s an amazing feeling to achieve this milestone the same way my biggest role model has,” said Lindsey.
Jared echoed these statements and added, “Homecoming is a time to show our school spirit and have fun with everyone at school.”
