Four men and four women were chosen to be on the Homecoming court by a committee.
The court consisted of:
Students were then able to vote on those selected through Braveweb and candidates were encouraged to campaign on campus.
Homecoming Queen Stephanie Lawson is a sophomore nursing major. Lawson is in Kappa Delta where she acts as the vice president of activities.
She and other sorority sisters constantly often volunteer for the Confidence Coalition, an international organization that helps promote confidence among young girls.
"I really didn't think I would win. I had a good feeling about running, but I thought there was another girl, I don't want to name names, that I was sure was going to win. I hadn't planned on running until my junior year, but my friends said I had to do it this year," Lawson said.
Homecoming King Gaven Mayo is a social work major. Mayo is the third floor Resident Adviser for Oak Hall and often spends his time working with the housing department to make residence halls better as part of service learning with his major.
"When I went to campaign, I put out a lot of flyers and used a lot of social media like Facebook and Twitter to get votes," Mayo said.
Mayo and Lawson will receive recognition for their titles throughout the school year and will be offered the chance to crown the next Homecoming King and Queen at next year's homecoming event.
