2008 Homecoming King & Queen: Where Are They Now?
The Homecoming Royalty embodies the University's ideals and values and their role is to represent the student body. As 2008 Homecoming King and Queen, Connor Stowe and Megan Hines did just that. Both were actively involved on campus and attended many events to represent the U. But what are they doing now?
Stowe graduated in May with a triple major in Journalism, Art History and Studies in Cinema and Media Culture. He spent the summer working for a community based organization in India and hopes to continue with that job in the future. Stowe's most memorable moment from Homecoming 2008 was making a giant cookie for the visual display competition. He had fun expressing his Gopher pride with artistic freedom and also enjoyed eating the cookie afterwards!
Hines is currently finishing up her degree at the University. She is staying busy on campus, working with the Panhellenic Council and the Board of Regents. Hines still remembers the feeling of walking out on to the field to be crowned. She was nervous and overwhelmed by all the people in the stands. It turned out to be a memorable experience though as she was invited to University President Bruininks' suite after the coronation!
When asked about what advice they would give to the 2009 Royalty court, both Stowe and Hines say to have fun with the experience. "Win or lose, it is just such a fun time meeting other people on the court and getting in the spirit of Homecoming," Stowe adds.
