Sutton twins win homecoming king and queen
SUTTON, Neb. (KSNB) - One family in Sutton now has two members of local royalty after a set of twins took home their school’s homecoming king and queen titles.
Logan and Melanie Minchow are 17 year olds at Sutton High School. The two were crowned king and queen at Friday night’s homecoming game after being voted for by their peers.
“It’s a good way to start off senior year and to be able to share that with Logan," Melanie said. “I was really surprised to know that I left a good impression on people and to know that I made an impact on others.”
Logan also made a lasting impact on his classmates. He won the title even after moving to virtual school for the semester.
“He’s everybody’s friend," Melanie said. "I don’t think one person would say otherwise.”
The twins are described by their family as having a very close connection. A connection brought even closer sharing this experience.
“They have a unique bond," the twins' mom Heather told Local4 News. "They have been through a lot together. They just kind of help each other out.”
“Really whenever I’m feeling stressed or down, he’ll just make me laugh and I forget why I’m stressed," Melanie said. "Or if he is stressed or sick, I’m always there for him to help him through things.”
Melanie said being on the homecoming court was “awesome” and it was really nice to be able to do it together.
