While at prom, Keanne Hiraldo and Jessica Ortiz made history when they won the title of king and queen for the first ever senior class.

Keanne  and Jessica won the title of 2019 king and queen by 30 votes at prom. Together they shared this moment at their last dance at the school, making it a memorable moment since both have been at the school for a couple years.

“I was nervous and excited because, like it was weird just walking in and everyone is looking at you but, I was excited, cause I’ve been here over six years so it makes me feel satisfied that I am leaving the school having a big moment,” says Ortiz.

Along with all the memories and moments they have had at this school they intended on making this one count towards the end of prom.

“I didn’t really focus on the king and queen situation as much, I really just wanted to have fun, cause like half the people there I’m not gonna see them for a while after I graduate,” says Hiraldo. “I really wanted to win, so I wanted to like make a memory.”

Together, Hiraldo and Ortiz asked people to vote for them all throughout prom. By doing this, they felt confident in their chances of winning king and queen.

“I told everyone don’t forget to vote, I was telling everyone in there, I was just like if we don’t win then it’s okay you know, I will be happy if anybody else won it’s not that serious. I had a feeling a little because we were just telling everyone to vote for us, and I won for homecoming too,” said Ortiz.

Even though Jessica and Keanne said it could have been anyone, it was them. Together they shared this moment that will prove to be very memorable, and years from now it could still be the same.

“I don’t think there is going to be another class like this one, like it’s we have been making a lot of memories and stuff since like middle school, for other people since kindergarten, so I don’t think there is going to be another class like this one,” says Keanne.
