  • Royalty Named at Homecoming

September 19, 2018

This past Saturday as part of its annual Family Weekend and Homecoming activities, Midway University named three students as Royalty. Sophomore Cameron Kincer (Neon, KY), junior Koy Lindsey (Campbellsville, KY) and senior Jose Bustamante (Surprise, Arizona) were presented crowns and sashes by Dr. John P. Marsden, President and Sarah Mudd, Assistant Vice President, Student Affairs.

This year was the first time Midway has held campuswide nominations and voting to select a Royal Court for Homecoming. Nearly 100 students were nominated by fellow classmates, staff and faculty members. The top 6 students receiving the most nominations were then presented as the slate of candidates. The campus community members then voted for one candidate in each class.

The three winners were announced between home soccer games on Saturday, September 15. While all three make up the Royalty, the senior winner, Jose Bustamante, received the title of Grand Eagle.

The following is a list of all homecoming candidates.
