Eight recognized Frostburg State University fraternities and sororities raised a total of $6,887 for eight charities as part of FSU’s Leadership and Homecoming festivities this year.
For the sixth year in a row, candidates for Frostburg State University’s Homecoming King and Queen and the organizations they represent raised money for charities as a way to support local and national organizations in need of financial support.
The candidates who raised the most money were selected for interviews by the Homecoming Committee. The money was raised by students within a 30-day time frame. After the interview process, the student body was given a chance to vote for the King and Queen during the weeks leading up to Leadership and Homecoming Weekend. The winners were selected based on the student popular vote and were crowned at the Bobcat Growl on Oct. 31, which kicked off the Homecoming festivities.
Erica Gourdine, representing Delta Zeta, was crowned 2010 Homecoming Queen, raising $2,265.20 for the American Cancer Society. Steve Weatherholt of Pi Lambda Phi was crowned 2010 Homecoming King. His organization raised $218 for the Animal Welfare Society.
In addition to reigning over the Leadership and Homecoming Weekend, the King and Queen received the Foundation Royalty Award, $250 each given to them by the FSU Foundation, Inc.
