CONCORD UNIVERSITY CELEBRATES HOMECOMING 2014 

 

ATHENS, W.Va. – An overcast autumn day couldn’t dampen the Mountain Lion spirit for Concord University’s Homecoming 2014 celebration today (Saturday, Oct. 11) in Athens.

By the 2 p.m. kickoff at Callaghan Stadium, the drizzle and misty rain held off and the CU Mountain Lions roared past the Urbana University Blue Knights 50-20. With the win Concord moves to 6-0 for the season.

Alumni, students, fans and other Concord friends gathered on “The Campus Beautiful” for an afternoon of football and pre-game festivities that included an alumni brunch at University Point featuring a Meet and Greet with former professors and an open house at the President’s House. Affinity tents in the stadium parking lot offered alumni a place to reconnect with former classmates. Included were Bonner Scholars and alumni representing fine arts, social work, political science/pre-law, and reunion classes along with international alumni and Concord University Beckley alumni.

Concord University’s 2014 Homecoming Royalty, crowned in a halftime coronation, are Daria Nikolaeva from Moscow, Russia, representing the International Students Club and Jacob Smutko from Mifflin, W.Va., representing Chi Omega Psi.

Concord University President Dr. Kendra Boggess and Dr. Marjie Flanigan, vice president of student affairs and dean of students, crowned the winners.

First runners-up are Miranda Hemsworth from Charleston, W.Va., representing Sigma Sigma Sigma and Marcus Murrell from Huntington, W.Va., representing Phi Delta Pi.

Second runners-up are Bryna Marla Addair from Iaeger, W.Va., representing Delta Zeta and Joseph Andrew Sharpe from Galax, Va., representing Phi Sigma Phi.

Other candidates competing for the 2014 crowns were: Katie Pennington from Fayetteville, W.Va., representing Alpha Sigma Alpha and Jayden Shepherd from Orlando, Fla., representing Tau Kappa Epsilon; and Julie Lauderman from Vienna, W.Va., representing Alpha Sigma Tau and Gregory Slone from Summersville, W.Va., representing Sigma Tau Gamma.
