Here are some of the Survey Results:

The 1952 Atwater High School Panther Yearbook listed the names under the King and Queen as:  Bunty and Genie.  Gary Broman, their Senior Class President knew the names of the King and Queen:  Gene Anderstrom and Christine Munson.

In 1957, there was a Sock Hop in the Atwater Gym and Disc Jockey Bill Armstrong of the Radio Station WDGY was there.

Denise Buer was a Crownbearer as a 1st Grader and was crowned Queen as a Senior in the Atwater Gym.

The first Homecoming for the ACGC Falcons was in 1993. New traditions were started.  Instead of  having last year’s royalty march back and forth behind the candidates, each girl candidate was given a box with a rose in it.  Only the queen got a red rose; all the other candidates received a white rose.    Likewise, the king candidates all got footballs, but only the king’s was teal.

Bridget and Brandon Mortenson were two of the 1991 AGC Blazer Homecoming Attendants.  Their father, Doug Mortenson, was homecoming king for Cosmos 1969-1970

The 1984 AGC Blazer Homecoming Queen was Anita Gratz.  Anita’s father, Dale Gratz was the 1960 Atwater Homecoming King and Dale’s brother (Anita’s uncle) Gerry was the 1959 Atwater Homecoming King.

During the 1960 Homecoming Coronation at AHS, Dale Gratz was crowned the new Homecoming King by his brother Gerry Gratz the outgoing 1959 Homecoming King.

Three Sets of Twins have been King and Queen Candidates:                                                        *** Erik and Loretta Whitcomb were King and Queen Candidates for ACGC in 2011         *** Courtney and Chritine Malvin were Queen Candidates for ACGC in 2008                      *** Brandon and Bridget Mortenson were King and Queen Candidates for AGC in 1991
