Trinity Brooks and Michael Williams reactions to the announcement of them being King and Queen

The night before Homecoming was the infamous Homecoming game. The game was between Seminole and Apopka, with Seminole winning 21-3. During halftime, the 20 members of the homecoming court walked out to be introduced and hear the announcement of who had won. With students quiet and suspense building, it was announced that Trinity Brooks and Michael Williams had won homecoming queen and king!  Let’s get to know what was happening behind the scenes with them.


Homecoming queen, Trinity Brooks, is a senior who leads varsity cheer as their captain, is a part of senior class council, and a part of the Black Student Union (BSU). She does this all while maintaining her status as an honor roll student. With homecoming over, she gave insight on the week and events leading up to homecoming: “I decided to run for homecoming because when I was younger, my sister was on homecoming court her senior year and I always looked up to her so I decided to follow in her footsteps. To get votes, I was campaigning on Instagram and engaging with the students at school. For the week leading up, it was very stressful thinking about the votes, but overall, it was a great experience and I had a lot of fun. My favorite part of the parade was just being able to ride in the cars and making everyone proud who supported me. When they announced the homecoming queen, it was an exciting moment for me. I was crying tears of joy because I worked so hard for this moment and I’m just glad that God was in my favor. Being homecoming queen means to me that I’m a role model and it gives people a chance to look up to me. I would definitely recommend running for homecoming court. Some tips that I have are to always make sure to engage with the audience and to just be confident.”


The homecoming king, Michael Williams, is also a senior member of the BSU. Friends describe him as a fun, outgoing, and respectful person. As homecoming finishes up, he shares how it went for him: “I decided to run to prove that anyone can win homecoming court regardless of who you are. My friends were helping me and supporting me in getting my name out there. I also had my friends put a video together explaining what type of person I am. Homecoming week was a fun and emotional roller coaster, I wasn’t sure if I would win. When they announced my name, it felt like a dream come true. I feel like I have changed history since I’m the first normal person to win homecoming king; I’m in no sports and only a part of one club. I felt like people voted for me and wanted me to win so badly because many people can relate to me. I’m basically the common man who’s just ready to graduate high school and enjoy the time I have left at Seminole. I would definitely recommend running for court, the experience is super fun, and it made my whole year. The tips I would share would be not to be shy and go up to as many people as possible while being as nice as you can. You don’t have to campaign alone, have friends help you. Most importantly, don’t think just because you aren’t popular as everyone else doesn’t mean you don’t have a chance.” 


As homecoming season comes to an end, this is an amazing way to end their high school careers! Both have an amazing support system, which helped them win and grow as people. Congratulations to all of the homecoming court and the winners!
