The following week, Blisfield High School students crowned Emma Essen and Connor Friess as their Coming Home Queen and King during halftime Feb.6 while several male school officials dressed as women did a Dash for Cash to raise funds for After Prom activities. The candidates for royalty were delivered in via children’s wagon “floats,” except one who rode in on a friend’s back.
