Clad in all black, she runs the soundboard balancing the voices of actors and cueing up the digital orchestra. Wearing a beautiful smile and her United Supermarket shirt, she carries on friendly conversations as she takes groceries to customer’s cars. 

His stark-white jersey bright against the green turf. Countless times his name is called as he throws touchdown after touchdown. His good heart shines bright as he tells children about God at his church, and informs elementary students about the dangers of drugs. 

I guess it shows that talking to people can go a long way.”

Seniors Aidan Hildinger and Ally McBroom were named Mr. and Miss CHS Dec. 3 between the girls and boys basketball games. Both said they did not expect to be nominated even less to win. 

“It was kind of a shock,” Hildinger said. “ Braxton [Brown] sent me a picture of [the ballot] before I saw it. I wasn’t nominated for class favorite the past three years. I guess it shows that talking to people can go a long way.”

McBroom was voted for both Miss CHS and senior class favorite. 

Me getting it, is really Canyon High getting it.”

“I definitely wasn’t expecting it,” McBroom said. “I don’t know why people nominated me, but I appreciate it. Seeing people take time to vote for me, thinking I deserved the title, I never would have expected that. I think everyone here deserves it. I’m influenced by everyone here. Me getting it, is really Canyon High getting it.”

The nominees were brought onto the court between the girls and boys basketball games.

“Leading up to it, I didn’t expect to win,” Hildinger said. “I actually showed up in shorts and a long-sleeve north face shirt, and I had to run home and change because I didn’t know how serious this was.”

It’s cool having most of the student body vote for me, and it’s an honor.”

The honor of Mr. and Miss CHS has been around for decades.

“Whenever they announced my name, all my friends from the football team were shouting my name,” Hildinger said. “It was surreal. It’s cool having most of the student body vote for me, and it’s an honor.”

McBroom said she did not think anyone expected her name to be called again for Miss CHS.

“All the parents and students cheered and then I heard Amanda Roberts scream ‘I work with her!’,” McBroom said. “It was really cool, and not a reaction I was expecting. It meant a lot.”

Hildinger said senior year has been a good year.

“I’ll remember the people I’ve built friendships with, and I’ll remember being Mr. CHS,” Hildinger said. “Senior year has been a really fun year for me. Last year was kind of hectic, but this year has been really good. I’m looking forward to graduation. In 10 years, I’ll remember all the good things that have happened, and I may or may not miss it. We’ll see.”
