While Tanner Haugen and Breanna Trout may have been King and Queen of the Eatonville Community Day court, a whole mess of royalty also walked to center stage in the gymnasium.

Eatonville School District Superintendent Krestin Bahr spoke for the hundreds overflowing from the high school gymnasium, speaking in praise of the students in her care.

"May we all remember what it's like to be a child," she said. "We value children and their minds."

The district maintains the highest graduation rate in Pierce County. Additionally, the district will be opening three preschools in each of the elementary schools.

Columbia Crest student Liam Miller sang the national anthem before the festivities started, and then the royalty marched through the arch and onto the stage.

Haugen , in the 92nd royalty coronation, put the crown on Trout's head and she was officially named queen of May Day.

The volunteers of the year were honored at the festivities as well, including Julie Clark and Julie Wood, the maestros behind the Community Day.

The royal court is as follows:


Senior Court: Tabitha Coss, Kenzie Rodewald, Kylie Kondra, Lindsay Sniezak, Nicholas Arden, Gjori Nykreim, Ryan Bailey and Trent Wohlgemuth.
