HC: Why did you run for Homecoming royalty?

HC: What would winning mean to you?
BH: It is not all about winning, but about having fun. It is quite an honor to be on the homecoming court, but if I did win it would tell me and others that I did a good job representing NRHH/RHA, the campus and a positive, well-rounded person. So far this week I have had a lot of fun interacting with students on campus through the homecoming events and being an active participant in homecoming overall.
