St. Louis: A week after University City High School senior Aaron Zaggy managed to be crowned 2007 Homecoming Queen, parents packed a meeting with the Board of Education to condemn him and raise concern about handling sexual orientation in the school.
Zaggy, who took a friend up on the idea of running, said the school board gave him permission to run and doesn't see the problem. He asked, "Homecoming is about fun. So why not keep it for fun purposes?" Some parents want a formal apology.
Although the entire student body was allowed to vote, only half actually did so, choosing Zaggy by almost 20 votes. "We just slapped up some posters and did it. And won," he said, adding he'd like to be seen as nothing more than a jokester.
