The 51st homecoming celebration at Mount Vernon Nazarene University was one to remember, as students, family and alumni gathered to make special memories. Senior Madison Near was crowned Homecoming Queen and was honored for her dedication to her academics, as well showing a Christ-like spirit to those around her.
Each year, one student is selected from each class to represent their peers on the homecoming court. The six women chosen for court are not only admired by their peers across campus, but also display a Christ-like character, show dedication to the university and have maintained a good academic standing.
Abbey Faucett, Laura Heussler, Ashley Weber, Ellen Baker and Cecily Leetch were also nominated for homecoming court.
Near is a senior Early Childhood Education major. She expressed her gratitude to the campus community, saying, “This experience means a lot to me. It is an honor and privilege to be a part of. MVNU has helped me grow and learn, not only through classes, but through the experience that comes with the everyday college life.”
