From the Marietta (Ga) Daily Journal:
In what is believed to be a first for a Georgia high school, a transgender student has been elected to Walton High School’s homecoming court.
Sage Lovell, 16, was one of about 50 other girls in the junior class who were first nominated for homecoming court. The junior class then elected her and three other young women to serve on the court. She is not eligible for homecoming queen since that position is only offered to seniors.
Sage said she is excited she was chosen, and has received support from many of her classmates, who came up to her and told her they were going to vote for her.
“I’m so flattered to be representing my school, to be, like, able to, like, just represent my entire junior class,” she said.
