Seven student members of Frostburg State University’s 2013 Homecoming Court have raised a total of $3,374.22 to benefit various charities as part of FSU’s Homecoming festivities. Representing seven campus organizations, these candidates have upheld a nine-year tradition of supporting local and national charities as an integral part of Homecoming.
This year’s Queen is Candyce Thomas representing Alpha Phi Omega. She raised $693.26 for Woman2Woman Empowerment, a charity that aims to equip and empower women to be positive, powerful and prayerful. Homecoming King is Andy Krehbiel, representing Phi Mu Delta, who raised $602.51 for Shape Up America, a charity that educates the public on the importance of achieving and maintaining a healthy body weight through the adoption of increased physical activity and healthy eating.
The other members of the 2013 Homecoming Court are Heather Vosburg representing the President’s Leadership Circle, who raised $856.45 for Autism Speaks; Shannon Bielski representing Delta Zeta, who raised $827 for the American Cancer Society; Brittany Alvarez representing Alpha Sigma Alpha, who raised $250 for Easter Seals; Katie Morgan representing Alpha Sigma Tau, who raised $115 for Habitat for Humanity; and Aaron Ware representing The Bottom Line student newspaper, who raised $30 for the Western Maryland Food Bank.
Before the Homecoming King and Queen were crowned, each candidate spent weeks raising money for their selected charity. After this process there were the candidate interviews, evaluation of a written essay and finally the student body voting, which took place in the week leading up to Homecoming. The Homecoming King and Queen were chosen based on the popular vote and were crowned during the Bobcat Growl Pep Rally on Oct. 24, then reigned over the weekend’s festivities.
