Last week was Homecoming weekend at the College of St. Scholastica.  Among the changing leaves, students got ready for a weekend full of chili, football, and of course a school dance. However, one of the most exciting sights was the newly appointed Homecoming King and Queen.
            This year Michael Jackson and Joy Anderson joined the list of Royalty who have graced the campus. Their 2015 selection is nothing short of amazing and the student body has selected two of the brightest smiles and warmest hearts they could ever choose.
            “I was shocked and it was a total surprise,” said Michael Jackson, new King of Homecoming. “It was an honor to be even nominated, but to be selected is a whole other honor in itself.”
            Jackson has been involved in the student body since he came in campus and he exudes happiness and energy with every breath. From his positivity, kindness, and humor to his overall humbleness, he is truly already a King in the minds of the student body.
            “When I was nominated I was on cloud nine,” Anderson said. “It feels so special; it’s a huge compliment and honor”
            Anderson is a well-known face on campus for her work in student clubs and being an RA for the Freshman class. She radiates confidence and kindness. With her fellow RA’s and support of her residents, Anderson has become a leading woman on campus and much deserving of the title of Queen.
            “I want to spread the message of peace and respect in our community,” Queen Anderson said. “Oh, and down with homework.”
            Both King and Queen have their humorous sides and are the epitome of what it means to be a stellar Saint at Scholastica.
            “I think the spirit of Homecoming brings out the best in the students, faculty and staff,” Jackson said. “What’s really cool is the symbolism of Homecoming and how it brings the CSS community better.”
            Jackson and Anderson lead the Homecoming parade this past Saturday in style and true CSS pride. We at the OneStop office are proud of every student for being a Saint and are extremely happy for the King and Queen.

            “In the words of Megan Perry-Spears: Be Bold, Be Benedictine,” said King Jackson.
