Sierra Echavarria named Homecoming Queen

Congratulations to Sierra Echavarria, who was crowned the 2017 Penn Manor High School Homecoming Queen.

Sierra was chosen from among the nine members of the Penn Manor homecoming court at halftime of the Sept. 30 football game against Hempfield High School.

Last year’s queen, Karly Emmert, was on hand to crown Sierra during a ceremony on the field.

Sierra is the daughter of Rafael Echavarria and Sabel McKinnie and the stepdaughter of Gerrin McKinnie. Her father was her homecoming escort.

She is a member of the Scrubs Club and Student Ambassadors, is Penn Manor High School Chorus vice president and section leader, sings with the Vocal Jazz Ensemble and works as an LGH student volunteer. She was recently named to County Chorus.

After graduation, Sierra plans to study pre-med at a four-year college.

Other members of the court were Veronica Cazillo, Sarai Figueroa, Madison Groff, Allison Hege, Alexis Hemmerly, Brittany Hook, Samantha Liu and Cheyenne Ressler. The court raised money in support of the Penn Manor MiniTHON.

Homecoming activities included a pep rally in the East Gym, tailgating and a Homecoming Dance Saturday in the Penn Manor High School cafeteria.

In addition, the Penn Manor Alumni Association distributed stadium seat cushions and pom-poms to the many alumni in the crowd.

It was a great night to be a Comet!
