Freed-Hardeman University seniors Emma Butt and Marshall Dearing were named Homecoming Queen and King Saturday, Nov. 9, at a ceremony conducted during halftime of the women’s basketball game. The entire court, selected by the students, had been presented to the student body earlier in the week.
The queen is formerly from Columbia, Tennessee, but her family now lives in Peachtree City, Georgia. A nursing major, she is a two-time hostess of Makin’ Music, an officer of Phi Kappa Alpha and a member of Tennessee Student Nurses Association.
Dearing is pursuing concurrent Bachelor of Business Administration and Master of Business Administration degrees. He is also a member of Phi Kappa Alpha as well as Clayton Investment Team, the Society of Future Marketers, the Society for the Advancement of Management, the Campus Delegate Team and the Brown Legacy Research Team.
Additional nominees for queen who were recognized as part of the court include Sarah Hester, an elementary education major from Florence, Alabama, and Elizabeth Wisdom, an elementary education major from Smyrna, Tennessee. Other nominees for king were Sam Boyd, an English major from Lawrenceburg, Tennessee, and Tucker Campbell, a marketing major from Michie, Tennessee.
Also on the court were representatives of the junior class: Tara Crawford, a communication major from Huntsville, Alabama; Cassidy Shrader, a communication major from Columbia, Tennessee; Jack Cannon, a computer science major from Ashland City, Tennessee; and Hunter Hodge, a management major from Double Springs, Alabama.
Representing the sophomore class were Maggie Nash, a social work major from Jackson, Tennessee; Emily Stutts, a law and politics major from Muncie, Indiana; Chandler Ross, a Bible major from Florence, Alabama; and Ben Painter, a business analytics major from Cold Spring, Kentucky.
Freshman members of the court were Emily Beard, a kinesiology major from Corinth, Mississippi; Kayla Thomas, a nursing major from Henderson, Tennessee; Curt Graham, a business management major from Spring Hill, Tennessee; and Wes Magee, a business management and communication major from Southaven, Mississippi.
