  • Why would you take pictures like this with masks? What kind of keepsake picture is this going to be for the young lady???!!!

  • They wear the masks all day at school. They have to wear them at all public events. This photo is representative of their life this year.

  • She is a representative of "sheeple" in America.

  • "She" is not representative, the picture is. Don't fret Don, you had no chance of being homecoming queen anyway.

  • Maybe some of us need to follow these school guidelines. These students know the rules and follow them with no complaints. It is sad to see a comment referring to this beautiful young lady who just won a big queen honor as a ‘sheeple’. Congratulations young lady.

  • @ Ben Dover--street rumors state that you always did look good in a dress. Is that true?

  • @Don Antonio let’s not drag the children into this. Go name call a liberal on the street and I’ll support you. Leave the students alone.

  • Among all of the negativity in the world today, here is a good story in the newspaper...and yet someone still has to put a negative spin on it in order to satisfy their drama-filled ego. Sad.

  • @techphcy--I don't think these high school students would appreciate you calling them "children".
