Homecoming Queen and King Announced, June O. Shott Field Dedicated

Athens, W.Va. - This weekend marked Concord University’s homecoming celebration, the first of this annual tradition to be held on the new synthetic turf of the June O. Shott Field at Callaghan Stadium. The Mountain Lions played the Golden Eagles of the University of Charleston for the homecoming game.

Classmates from the classes of 1956 and 1981 were honored, and football players from those reunion classes were introduced at the game prior to kickoff.

Mrs. June O. Shott was honored in a pregame dedication of the June O. Shott Field in Callaghan Stadium. Concord University President, Dr. Jerry Beasley, escorted Mrs. Shott to the riser near the Mountain Lion statue, and Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students, Dr. John David Smith, presented a souvenir football to Mrs. Shott, who graciously funded the installation of the new turf.

At halftime, Jennifer Boone from Rainelle, representing Delta Zeta, and Rodney Hughey from Detroit, Mich., representing Black Student Union, were named homecoming queen and king for 2006.

First attendants were Julia Spencer from Richwood, representing Sigma Sigma Sigma, and Matt Sellers from Elizabeth, representing Tau Kappa Epsilon.

Second attendants were Megan Davies from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, representing Alpha Sigma Alpha, and Bo Rose from Bluefield, representing Mu Xi Phi.

Other candidates for homecoming queen and king included: Beth Lee from Charlestown, representing Alpha Sigma Tau, and Matt Peake from Roderfield, representing Sigma Tau Gamma; Stephanie Young, from Prospect, Pa., representing the Concord University Dance Team, and Joshua Gallagher from Roanoke, Va., representing Phi Sigma Phi; and Holly Staten from Princeton, representing Nu Zeta Chi, and Alex Andviza from Troutville, Va., representing Pi Kappa Phi.
