The 2013 Homecoming Court was introduced during halftime of the Eagles basketball game.
Sophomore Kastala Brown, a member of the ASCC cheerleading squad and a Phi Theta Kappa member, was elected the 2013 Alabama Southern Community College Homecoming Queen for the Monroeville campus by the student body.
Attendants included sophomore Soyia Folmar and freshman Khadijah Kidd. Folmar is a member of the Student Government Association and the ASCC women’s basketball team. Kidd is a member of Phi Theta Kappa, the Student Government Association and Circle K.
“Our 2013 homecoming week was a success. Each year, we aim to have a bigger and better turnout than the last,” said Tori Jones, Student Activities Coordinator. “This year was our first time to include a homecoming court and students were excited about becoming involved and trying something new.”
Community events included a reception for alumni of ASCC, Patrick Henry State Junior College and Hobson State Technical College; along with an invitation to tailgate before the basketball games. To end the celebration, the college hosted a dance at Vanity Fair Golf Club with entertainment provided by 2nd Coming.
