At the Wadena-Deer Creek Coronation ceremony Sunday evening, the 2011 Homecoming King and Queen were crowned. The 2011 Homecoming King and Queen are Jonathan Goeden and Lauren Girard. They were crowned by 2010 King Brandon Schmitz in a suspenseful "passing of the crown" over each candidate's head.

Junior Macy Hartman provided the piano music while senior Austin Korkowski entertained the audience with his rendition of "Hotel Yorba."
