Homecoming King and Queen candidates announced

October 13, 2008 12:00AM

Forty-three seniors are vying for the crown after being named finalists for 2008 Homecoming King and Queen at Pittsburg State University.

Seniors from a variety of majors -22 women and 21 men in all - were chosen as finalists after a committee made up of PSU students, faculty members and alumni conducted interviews with the candidates. Each candidate met one-on-one with the committee to give a formal presentation.

The winners will be announced at noon on Wednesday, Oct. 15, during convocation at Carnie Smith Stadium. The king will receive a medallion, while the queen will be crowned with a tiara, and both will receive plaques.

Both will also be featured in the Homecoming parade at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 18, and will be recognized at halftime during the football game against the University of Nebraska-Omaha, which kicks off at 2 p.m. the same day.
