A few weeks ago my little sister, Sara called me with the fantastic news that she was nominated for ECU’s Homecoming Court. Not wanting to miss this chance we made plans to go to Greenville for the weekend regardless if she made the top 5 or not. We knew it would be a fun weekend of tailgating and a great football game anyways.
Being that Ben is a student at ECU in their distance program he was able to vote for Sara. His vote definitely counted since she made it to the top 5. After a panel of interviews and a week full of parties and appearances she rode in the Homecoming Parade and was introduced during half-time on the field. We all held our breath as Sara was announced ECU’s 2009 Homecoming Queen representing Kappa Delta. I think everyone had a few tears in their eyes.
After half-time we ran down to meet her for pictures, and watched by the end zone where she and Tremaine , the Homecoming King, raised the No Quarter flag at the beginning on 4th Quarter. What a wonderful weekend full of good food, friends, family and wonderful memories! Congratulations Sara…Ben and I are so proud of you!
