Homecoming Observed at TMC
Truett-McConnell College observed its annual Homecoming for the 2008-09 academic year on Saturday, November 1, 2008. This represented a change from the usual winter homecoming schedule and permitted the homecoming activities to support the kickoff weekend of basketball season for the TMC Bears and Lady Bears.
Both TMC teams came away from their games with impressive wins: the women’s team played Brewton-Parker College JV at 5:30 PM and came out on top by a score of 86-54. At 7:30 PM the official homecoming game pitted the TMC Bears against Oxford College in a matchup in which the TMC men cruised to an easy 102-38 victory.
At halftime of the men’s game, the TMC Office of Student Services conducted the ceremonies that crowned the Homecoming King and Homecoming Queen and introduced the Homecoming Court, all elected by vote of the student body.
Aisha Moore, a senior music major from Jonesboro, GA, was crowned Homecoming Queen by last year’s queen Kate Bushey. Meau Jones, a sophomore general studies major and men’s basketball player from Hartwell, GA, was crowned Homecoming King.
Named to the Homecoming Court were Megan Burns, a sophomore education major from Carnesville; Hannah Stanford, a sophomore education major from Douglasville; Hannah Shivar, a sophomore education major from Watkinsville; Jared Marsh, a sophomore Christian Studies major from Hartwell; Jon K. Smith, a senior history major from Lakemont; and Bryan Wisdom, a sophomore history major from Dacula.
