    David Crockett High School's student body does not elect a homecoming king, only a homecoming queen and homecoming princesses. In the past, male students could only hope the candidates would pick them as an escort. However, this year a male student did not want to be an escort, he wanted to be on the court.

    "There is a male student who put his name on the ballot for homecoming queen," Washington County Assistant Director of Schools for Attendance and Discipline James Murphy said. "As far as this young man being on the ballot, there's nothing we can do about that at this point."

    Although Murphy would not release the name of the high school junior or why he wanted to run, he said the teen also had a constitutional right. Plus, Murphy added the school's policy did not define the position of homecoming queen as one held by a woman.

    "There was an opening in that policy that did not indicate who could run or who couldn't run," Murphy said. "We want to recognize everybody's rights. We certainly want to stay inside the law."

    With that in mind, the school system also allowed a group of students to protest the election for hours outside the school. Instead of going to class Friday, they and some of their parents sat around the flagpole trying to prove a point.

    "Junior and senior girls dream about this and can't wait to become juniors or seniors to become the queen or the princesses," David Crockett High School senior protestor Akita Cilley said. "The definition of homecoming queen is only for a female position. I just think it's wrong."

    Cilley organized the protest and collected signatures opposing the male student's campaign. More than a dozen students joined her cause.

    "That's a girl's spot and I don't believe that a guy should take that from a woman," sophomore Sydnee Gilliam said. "I don't think that's right. This is David Crockett High School and I don't think it makes the school look good and I don't think that David Crockett would agree."

    While the students protested, administrators tallied the results of this year's homecoming court election. In the end, Murphy said the teen did not receive enough votes to win a spot on the court and a chance at homecoming queen.

    "The young man who was on the ballot was not elected," Murphy said. "We look at it as democracy prevailing."

    After announcing the results to the protestors, Murphy told all of the students to go home for the weekend. When they return to school Monday, they could face punishment for disrupting the school day.

    "Students can be disciplined for causing disruption in the school," Murphy said. "The Supreme Court's made that very clear. We need to sit down with the kids and give each one their due process rights. I'm not about to have an administrator do that with a clipboard at the flagpole. So, we'll just go on today and we'll see how it sorts out Monday."

    :laugh::facepalm:they should just make a spot and elect a king as well and avoid this mess all together. Every school I have heard of has always had a king and queen.
