For a second consecutive year, a CBA marketing management major has been crowned UA Homecoming King. Jharell Watkins, was crowned King at the Homecoming Dance on October 1, 2010. Last year’s King was Adam Myser who graduated with his bachelor’s degree in May and is currently pursuing his J.D. degree at the UA School of Law.
Two other CBA students, Amy Glomski, an accounting major, and Christopher Stimler, a sales management major, were also nominated for Homecoming Court Royalty.
Watkins, who is the Associated Student Government Senator for the CBA, was nominated by Lambda Chi Alpha.
As part of the selection process, he and the other nominees were required to make a presentation to a panel of judges discussing the mark they will leave on the University when they graduate. The winner was selected on the basis of the scores for the presentation (75%) plus student votes (25%).
As Homecoming King, Watkins’ duties include co-hosting the Student Life Awards with Samantha Knisley, the Homecoming Queen during the Spring 2011 semester.
“I am honored to be crowned Homecoming King and to be the voice of my constituents,” says Watkins. “I promise that I will continue to make all my fellow students proud to be Zips.”
