A teen girl named Emily Rose Grover is threatening to drag school district officials to the law court for accusing her of rigging a 2020 homecoming queen election. According to Emily, she was falsely accused of stealing the crown, and she won’t let it slide.

There’s a small-stage Shakespearean tragedy playing out in northwestern Florida, where a teen accused of rigging a 2020 homecoming queen election plans to sue school district officials, insisting her arrest ruined her life.
Emily Rose Grover, 19, claims her civil rights were violated when she was accused — falsely, she claims — of tampering with electronic votes in the October 2020 homecoming race at Tate High School in Cantonment, from which she was later expelled.
The fallout of the made-for-TV high school drama humiliated Grover and also prompted a university to rescind her “full-ride” scholarship, the teen’s attorney Marie Mattox told The Post.
“She has had horrific emotional pain and suffering, as you can imagine,” Mattox said. “Her life has been destroyed. She is trying to get back to a semblance of normalcy.”
Grover is apparently doing so by accepting a bid to join the Alpha Delta Pi sorority at the University of West Florida, photos recently posted on her Instagram account show.
“Normally, from what I’ve heard, they are the hard-ass sorority,” Baylee Sanders, who went to the same church as Grover, told The Post. “But then they’ll take in a girl who has been arrested and [had] four charges!”
A spokesperson for the sorority told The Post: “At the time Emily Grover pursued membership in Alpha Delta Pi, she had been fully cleared of all charges.”
Eight students and a teacher told FDLE investigators that Grover spoke about accessing her mother’s school district employee account — some even saw her do it — for nearly four years, court documents obtained by The Post show.
“I have known that Emily Grover logs into her moms [sic] school account in order to access grades and test scores since freshman year when we became friends,” one student told authorities. “She looks up all of our group of friends’ grades and makes comments about how she can find out our test scores all of the time.”
Another person at the school told investigators Grover was bold and shameless about her actions, court documents show.
“I recall times that she logged onto her moms [sic] focus account and openly shared information, grades, schedules, etc, with others,” the witness said. “She did not seem like logging in was a big deal and was very comfortable with doing so.”
Carroll, who was set to head to trial this month, entered a no-contest plea to one count of felony unlawful use of a two-way communications device on Sept. 8.
She was sentenced to 18 months probation and all additional charges were dropped.
