On September 2, 2015, the top five Auburn University Miss Homecoming nominees were announced atop the steps of Cater Hall.
Caroline Holmes, the SGA Executive Director of Elections, gave the crowd of friends and supporters what they wanted: the list of girls.
Taylor Wesley, Callie Barganier, Katie Knell, Tomi Obebe and Sara Bedsole will all campaign for the title of Auburn University Miss Homecoming in October.
“Honestly, I’m just so excited for this group of great girls and I can’t wait to hear and see them do amazing things,” said Holmes.
Miss Homecoming nominees prepare and campaign for a student body vote during the Homecoming Week celebrations, all in the name of a special cause or charity.
All five girls come from diverse campus backgrounds and their energy was tangible as I asked them each what was going through their minds immediately after their names were called.
“I was shocked and excited and honored,” said Sara Bedsole.
Katie Knell said she was “so thrilled to share stories” with her fellow nominees and the student body.
Callie Barganier was “speechless,” and Taylor Wesley said, “I would never have imagined I would have been here a year ago!”
Tomi Obebe said “I can’t believe I’m up here with these great girls and I can’t wait to bring the Auburn community together.”
Congratulations to all of the top five candidates for Miss Homecoming. Stay updated on all of the Homecoming Week festivities on the SGA website!
