Homecoming Court: Molly Medvit
by Ang Butchelle, Emilee Fedrizzi, and Suchi Patel
You may have seen her cheering with a big smile at the football games every weekend, but this week, you will catch Molly Medvit striding across the field as a member of Shenango’s 2022 Homecoming Court.
Throughout her whole high school career, Molly has been a part of the Shenango Varsity Cheerleading squad, which she loves. “I like the group of girls and they are just all nice and fun to be around.” Going into her senior year, she is trying to make the best of her last experience on the squad.
Being a cheerleader is not the only reason she loves Shenango, though. “[I value] the support from everyone around me,” especially her friends and teachers.
Her cheering section is not only made up of her peers; it starts at home. Molly stresses, “[My family] pushes me to do my best and they are always trying to come to the games I cheer at.” In particular, her grandma holds a special place in her life. “I think it’s because she’s a really nice, kind person. She’s very selfless”.
Last year’s homecoming queen, Riley Bruce, is someone Molly truly idolizes. “Riley is a very respectful and kind person. She will always include and talk to anyone she meets.” Molly hopes to embody Riley’s qualities during her last year at Shenango as well.
Escorting Molly is her good friend Zach Herb, which is particularly special to her because “we’ve been friends since elementary.” Along with having Zach beside her as her escort, this homecoming is notable for Molly because “it’s my last one.”
When Molly first found out she was nominated for court, she went through a rush of emotions. “I was just shocked, but at the same time, I was really excited. I think everyone on the homecoming court deserves it, and it will be really fun.”
It’s not only being a member on the court that is what makes Molly anticipate the upcoming homecoming weekend. “I am excited about getting ready and being at the dance with everyone. I want to have a good time, one last time.”
Going off her own high school experience, her greatest advice to underclassmen would be, “Keep up with your school work, get good grades, and don’t get involved in drama.” Molly hopes to follow her own advice as she continues her education and plans “to attend college for cinematography and radiology” in her journey after Shenango.
