Queen Candidates

Kristee Elliott

I feel that I would best represent SIUE as Homecoming Queen because I have been able to maintain a level of diversity and integrity in both academic and professional fields. I have chosen to take full advantage of the services offered at SIUE and get involved to get the most out of my college experience. My hope is to see more SIUE students get involved on campus and in our community so that we can all become more well-rounded and informed individuals of a democratic society because I believe that is how SIUE maintains its diversity and positive reputation.

Mosannah Golden

From the moment I stepped foot on the SIUE campus, I was in love. The beautiful atmosphere got me here; the amazing people kept me here. As homecoming queen, it would be a privilege to continue to give back to the school and students that have created so many memorable experiences for me. I believe that a representative of the SIUE community must be in tune with the spirit of the university. I know one thing for sure about SIUE….We are excellence in the flesh, enhancing our future world every day, and we exceed when others simply exist.

Tarsha Moore

As a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc., I believe I am a great representative because I possess the leadership skills that will help fuel SIUE's strive for excellence. I am dedicated to serving the campus community and if elected I plan to extend all of my resources in an effort to maximize the productivity of the student body. I take pride in my campus and I look forward to further introducing students to the countless opportunities that SIUE has to offer.

Jaid Ritter

I am passionate about our University and would love to represent SIUE as its 2012 Homecoming Queen! I know I can represent different aspects of the university because I am very involved in Greek Life, worked as a Resident Assistant, played on the Club Soccer team; I'm the Treasurer for Psi Chi, and a volunteer for several other organizations! I have seen all that SIUE has to offer and would be honored to represent its amazing students! Go Cougars!

Shayna Shinauit

As a personable, outgoing, and well-rounded student I believe I will best represent SIUE as Homecoming Queen. Being the current Vice President of Alpha Phi, serving as a Cougar guide to welcome new students, and working as a Golden Apple Scholar to change inner city school districts has developed me into a leader that will positively influence all students and the SIUE community. My goal is to actively serve others in order to make a difference. I feel that my experiences have made me a role model to my peers. It would be an honor to become SIUE's Homecoming Queen.



King Candidates

Drew Aldridge

As I prepare for graduation in May, I can honestly say I am proud to be an SIUE Cougar. Throughout my academic career at SIUE I have developed lifelong friendships with people from many different student organizations. SIUE has assisted me in building character and a strong work ethic allowing me to acquire leadership roles both on and off campus. I currently serve as the vice president of my fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon, an intramural Supervisor for Campus Recreation, and a leasing agent for Enclave Student Housing. My commitment to the university and campus involvement is what qualifies me to be the 2012 SIUE Homecoming King.

Chris Bagwell

In thinking of how I could best represent SIUE as Homecoming King, I was reminded of one of my favorite quotes by former President Harry Truman, It follos: "Men make history, not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better." In reflection, this quote represents everything I would stand for and practice as Homecoming King, I would do my best and all in my power to make SIUE a better place for all.

Alex Jette

I am running for Homecoming King because I believe that I best represent the ideals and values of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, As a student who is majoring in civil engineering and is also apart of the Greek community, I feel that I constantly represent positive ideals such as scholarship, service, integrity and dedication, Thanks to this University and my fraternity, I feel that I have developed my character into someone that would well represent this school and I would appreciate the chance to give back to those whom have given me so much.

James Mclendon

Throughout my time here at SIUE, I have been very involved on campus, I am the President of Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity. I have participated in IFC, SIUE Web Radio and the Ad Club. I have been a volunteer coach for Edwardsville Highschool's cross country team the past three years so I am visible in the community as well. I am diverse and very open. I should be your Homecoming King I believe Everyone has a story for who they are and I am one of the few who is willing to hear that story and accept them.

Andrew Scheibe

I've been at SIUE for four years, and through those years I've met people I will never forget, all of whom have made this place home, SIUE is very welcoming and open, much like myself. As homecoming King I would represent SIUE in a similar manner. Through STARs I have a firm grasp on the idea of good demeanor, I know what is expected of someone in a position of a certain stature and as Homecoming King, I believe I can offer all of this and more, Vote for me for your Homecoming King.
