Homecoming Royalty crowned Wednesday
John Murphy, senior of Harrison, and Gabriela Perez, senior of Sioux City, Iowa, were announced, respectively, CSC’s Homecoming King and Queen last night during the Coronation.
“It feels great. It’s always a blessing to represent Chadron State College to the fullest and I’m just happy that I could do it,” said Murphy.
Perez responded to her crowning with, “It’s exciting for sure, it’ll be fun because it’s my senior year so it’s one last big thing to do.”
Each club on campus had the chance to nominate a King and Queen candidate. The voting for royalty began Monday morning and ended yesterday at noon.
Sam Merrill, Senate’s Chief Justice, said that this year’s ballot contained 67 nominees. This year’s royalty voting had a great turnout. While last year they recorded 522 voters, the Homecoming committee recorded 681 voters.
Merrill said the Homecoming committee was very tight lipped about the voting process this year to avoid a leak of information.
The Coronation was immediately followed with the Lighting of “C” Hill.
The candidates will appear in the Homecoming Parade Saturday morning and at the Homecoming football game Saturday at 1 p.m. against Adams State University.
The queen results are as followed: Homecoming Queen Gabi Perez, First Attendant Choana Radtke, junior of Sidney, Second Attendant, Courtney Anderson, junior of Hastings, Third Attendant Chelsea Haynes, senior of Auburn, and Fourth Attendant Kimberly Hernandez, junior of Scottsbluff.
The king results are as followed: Homecoming King John Murphy, First Attendant Blake Hansen, senior of Chadron, Second Attendant Gregg Peterson, senior of Highlands Ranch, Colorado, Third Attendant T.J. Aanenson, junior of Farnam, and Fourth Attendant Isaac Langan, junior of McCook.
