PHOTO GALLERY: Holy Trinity homecoming coronation

WINSTED, MN – The energy was high at Holy Trinity High School’s homecoming coronation in Winsted Wednesday night.

Check out our photos here, and in the Friday, Sept. 21 edition of the Herald Journal. 

One highlight was the crowning of the 2018 homecoming king, Michael Dietz, and homecoming queen, Katlyn Pokornowski. Other royalty candidates included Anna Ho, Vy Duong, Adam Cuhel, Matthew Fasching, Nicholas Grgas, and Joshua Millerbernd.

Another bright spot was the presentation of Holy Trinity’s awards. First was the Distinguished Alumni award, given to Tom Scherping from the class of 1984. Scherping and his siblings took over AWI Manufacturing in Winsted in 2004, and the business has grown into a 100,000-square-foot facility. It was noted that Scherping has made the community a better place with his generosity and kind heart. AWI Manufacturing has made several sizeable donations to Holy Trinity School and other local causes.

The second person recognized was Judy Langenfeld, for the Holy Trinity Leadership Award. Langenfeld moved to Winsted in 1977, and has been a humble and dedicated volunteer ever since. She was one of the founders of the Winstock Country Music Festival, and retired from the committee this year. She has also been involved with the lakefront improvements, Meals on Wheels, Holy Trinity’s Spring Fling, and more.
