The first time announcer Kadasha Allen mention Malito was to introduce the senior as part of the 2015 Millington Central High School Winterfest Court. Moments later Allen announced Malito as the 2015 Winterfest Queen to be crowned by last year’s winner Asha Burks.
“I feel so excited,” Malito said. “I didn’t know people liked me so much to pick me.”
Malito was one of four seniors on the court along with MacKenzie Ingram with escort Robert Urhman and Angel Davis with escort Harry Davis. The fourth senior Jadaisha Ransom wasn’t able to attend because of illness.
Juniors on the court were Hannah Cooper (Chris Cooper), Glenda Garner (Tyrell Garner) and Jhane’ Taylor (John Taylor). The sophomores on the court were Kasey Gallo (Don Gallo) and Ceykia Christopher (Lanell Ragland) and freshman Dymond Green (Darrel Green) completed the 2015 MCHS Winterfest Court.
Malito said hearing her name means she will be a part of MCHS folklore forever.
“It makes me feel special to be connected with the school,” she said. “I’m so happy to be here.”
