What are your hobbies?

What was your favorite part of the Homecoming week celebrations?
I have actually never been to a Campbell football game, so my favorite part of the week was definitely the football game. Our team pulling off a huge win against San Diego was fantastic!! And of course being named Homecoming Queen was an added bonus!
What was your reaction after being crowned Queen?
I was in complete shock! This was my first year ever, being on the Harvest Court and winning the crown was amazing. I am so grateful to everyone that voted! My birthday was actually Friday, so the Gala Friday night and winning Harvest Court Saturday simply made my birthday this year.
What is your favorite movie?
Kung Fu Panda is one of my favorite movies! My favorite character is Po the panda!
Senior Robert Mitchell was Cody’s Homecoming escort. Senior Dew Yoder was crowned Homecoming King.
"I was fortunate enough to be Cody Meacham's escort during the 2011 Harvest Court festivities. She found the convertible, and she even bought the candy. During the parade procession, she said, "I wish I would have bought more candy to give away." In proper context, this shows how big of a heart she has and how she thought about the kids who stood along the parade route since there was plenty of candy to give away. During the half-time show, she was poised and graceful. I would be lying if I said I didn't want to win, but my personal disappointment of not winning didn't last too long once Cody's name was called. When her name was called, she was very comfortable in her own skin at that moment. I turned to her and said, "Omg, you won!" She was humble and appreciative, even in victory. Cody won 2011 Homecoming Queen because her Campbell cohort knew what I only learned that day: her sincerity, her winning personality, and her warm nature shines at the moment of initial greeting."
