Lima Homecoming King and Queen announced at Ohio State ceremony

The Lima Homecoming King and Queen were announced during a special ceremony Fri., Oct. 5, 2012, at the Longaberger Alumni House on the Columbus Campus. Amanda Williams, a junior from West Liberty majoring in early childhood education, was crowned the 2012 Lima Homecoming Queen. Gary Miller, Mt. Eaton, a junior biology major, was named the Lima Homecoming King.

Williams and Miller were among six Ohio State Lima students who represented their campus on Ohio State’s Homecoming Court during the Homecoming Week 2012. This was the second year that regional campuses had Homecoming Court royalty included in the University-wide homecoming celebration.

Other Lima Homecoming Court candidates included Jenalyn Hennon, New Hampshire; Amber Roesser, Wapakoneta; Seth Mitchell, Bellefontaine; and Joseph Vernik, Lima.

The Lima Homecoming Court was selected from a pool of applicants based on their leadership qualities, spirit, integrity, scholastic performance and achievement through their contributions and involvement at Ohio State. A selection committee interviewed each applicant and chose three male and three female students to comprise the Lima Homecoming Court. The application and interview scores were combined with the student body vote to determine Lima’s king and queen.

The Lima Homecoming Court candidates participated in week-long activities on the Lima Campus last week and joined the University-wide Homecoming Court Friday for the Homecoming Parade down High Street. They were also recognized during the Ohio State Marching Band’s Skull Session and the homecoming game versus Nebraska, Sat., Oct. 6, 2012.
