An Honorable Homecoming

The featured alum at this year's Honors Homecoming, was Kelli Raefield Randell, who graduated from ECU’s Honors Program in 1992. That’s her in the black top at the right end of the third row. Kelli was a member of the fourth class of Honors Program graduates. While she was at ECU, Kelli represented the Honors Program at Honors conferences in Emporia, Kansas and Chicago, Illinois. For the last 18 years, Kelli has been a math educator in the Texas Metroplex, and she recently made a presentation at a National K-12 Conference in Washington, D.C. Kelli spoke to current Honors students and faculty about the experiences she had when she was in the Honors Program at ECU.
Senior Communication and Performance Studies major Miranda McNabb and Sophomore Pre-Med major Tyler Whitney organized this year's Honorable Homecoming campaign;“Your Golden Ticket to an Honorable ECU Adventure.” That's Willie Miranda Wonka McNabb leading bright and motivated Honorable Oompa Loompas in the Homecoming parade."

Senior Microbiology major Darby Heard made the front page of the Ada News, working on an Honorable Chalk Art entry. Madison McNeil, a sophomore Biology major from Paden, Oklahoma and Trevor Berg, a sophomore Physics major from Yukon, represented the Honors Student Association as our King and Queen candidates, and we congratulate our Honorable President Talor Stewart, who was a finalist for King. Finally, congratulations to the ECU student body for choosing a very Honorable junior English major Sidney Lewis as this year’s Homecoming Queen!
