This year’s fun-filled Homecoming festivities were enjoyed by several of those on campus.
Whether students attended the highly exciting and victorious football game, or the widely anticipated Rope Pull, there were plenty of ways to participate and make memories of the Homecoming experience.
One special young woman, however, will remember this day for the rest of her life, because it was the day that she was crowned the 2006 Homecoming Queen.
After the Homecoming Queen nominees were escorted out onto the field, eagerly awaiting the announcement of the winner, one name was read that had several members of the crowd going wild. That was the name of the 2006 Homecoming Queen, Jamie Harper.
Harper is a senior Elementary Education major, as well as a member of Alpha Delta Pi sorority.
Harper first began her campaign for Homecoming Queen after believing that she could be a good representative.
“I felt that I could be a good representative, not only for my sorority, but also for this campus,” Harper said. “I love UTM.”
Besides putting up signs advertising her desire to become Homecoming Queen, Harper said that she used a part of her own personality as a campaign tactic.
“I’m a nice person,” said Harper. “It’s a part of my personality.”
This tactic seemed to help a lot as she visited several different organizations around campus, as well as having an open mind.
After receiving her crown, Harper said that obtaining the position meant a lot to her.
“It means a lot [to me] because I was voted by the campus,” Harper said. “I’m so glad to be a Skyhawk.”
Harper continued by saying that she was very appreciative to those who voted her into this position.
“I am so glad to represent UTM,” said Harper.
Congratulations once again to our 2006 Homecoming Queen Jamie Harper, as well as the other nominees.
