As a part of Park University’s Homecoming Weekend festivities, six students were selected as royalty during halftime of Park’s men’s soccer
match against Freed-Hardeman University on Sept. 19. Students were nominated by the student body, and the winners were selected — by a committee comprised of students, faculty and staff — after writing an essay and how they represent Park University’s core values
— accountability, civility and respect, excellence, global citizenship, inclusivity and integrity.
