The Homecoming Royalty Program at Appalachian celebrates the countless exceptional contributions made by current students through their campus and community involvement as well their efforts to support the success of other Mountaineers.
Student organizations are invited to nominate for this honor. Nine finalists will be selected as the Homecoming Court. These students are selected based on criteria that include:
- Academic success
- Campus involvement
- Community involvement
- A written essay addressing the nominee’s journey toward success at Appalachian and support of peers also on that journey
- A personal interview
- Student body vote
Finalists will be determined by the cumulative score from all criteria.
All members of the Homecoming Court will be recognized during the Homecoming festivities, including the annual Homecoming parade and a recognition ceremony on the field during the Homecoming football game.
From these nine finalists, one student will be further recognized as the 2016 “Top of the Rock” recipient in recognition of outstanding achievements and contribution to the success of others.
Nominations are due by Wednesday, September 28th at 5 pm.
- Candidates must be nominated by a recognized club or organization registered with the Campus Activities Office.
