Greetings Minden Family,
Happy Homecoming! I am Tyliayah Simor Smith. I am amazed to be crowned as Minden High School 2022 Homecoming Queen. I am the daughter of Carmesha George and Detyson Smith. I am the sister of Carmelo Smith, Malik George, Mariyah George, Detyson Smith Jr. and Eton Miller.
I am an active member of my school’s community. At Minden High, I am very busy. I have been a representative on the MHS Homecoming court for three years. I am an active member of the Student Council. I am proud to have been the president of my wonderful junior class, and I have enjoyed serving as a member of the amazing Grig Staff for three years. It has truly been an honor attending Minden High and helping out any way I can.
The Covid pandemic washed some of that fun away but this year we are able to come back bigger and better than ever. Homecoming is a fun season for our school. Classmates get to have fun working together as a team to decorate their floats. Kids are able to dress up in daily themes to show school spirit and raise as much money as possible for St. Jude. We get to reunite with old friends, reminisce about the old days, catch up with one another and create more memories. It’s a time for the old and new Tiders to reunite and create one big wave.
I’m really proud to have this title and to be given the opportunity to walk the halls as Minden High Homecoming Queen. I thank teachers, students and other staff for voting me as their Queen. I cannot say anything more but thank you, thank you from the depths of my heart. For people that know me, they know this has been a dream of mine since I put my first foot through Minden High doors and with the support of everyone I received this title.
I am very appreciative and I pray everyone has safe travels and a good time at the Pit. Now let’s cheer on our Mighty Crimson Tide to victory, as they take on North Desoto this Friday, September 23rd. ROLL TIDE ROLL!
