Homecoming Court 2016: Kennedy Robinson

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Valdosta chapter.

Name: Kennedy Robinson 

Major: Public relations 

Classification: Senior

Fun Fact: I’m obsessed with cookies but a major health freak! I’m also and undercover old lady. I love to just be at home sometimes cook, eat and watch movies! 

HC: Tell us a little about yourself:

KR: It’s hard to describe myself because I’m all over the place. Overall number one, I love God! He’s the only reason I have half of the strength to do what I do. I’m a somewhat reserved person with an outgoing mentality! I’m very laid back, goofy, corny, driven, love to play basketball, love to be involved and keeping myself busy. I’m always looking for the next challenge in all I do. 

HC: What are your aspirations in life?

KR: I aspire to have traveled most of the world before I turn 50, while having my own nutrition and health office. I want be happily successful and blessed 

HC: What are you involved in on campus?

KR: CWVSU, Habitat for Humanity, Success Mentors, Theta Tau chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Soroity Inc., VSU Ambassador, Greek Ambassador, Lambda Pi Eta Honor Society etc.

HC: What are you currently doing to influence students on campus?

KR: In addition to being a Greek Ambassador and VSU Ambassador, I also mentor students around campus. So I am constantly interacting with the VSU community. Overall, I try to make sure that I have a positive impact on the people I meet through the work I do on campus. 


HC: Why should you be chosen for Homecoming Queen?

KR: I believe I should be chosen for homecoming queen because my goal is to change the title of homecoming queen to a position. A position to serve the campus and truly represent what it meant to be a student here at Valdosta State. My goal is to be more than a name or a forgotten girl who took the crown after half time. I want to serve the campus in every aspect and genuinely help bridge gaps that have been created over the years.

HC: If you were to be crowned Homecoming Queen, how would you use your title to impact our campus?

KR: I would use the title as Homecoming Queen to help our campus by using my title to connect us. My job would be to help bring smaller organizations to the forefront and break barriers with larger ones for open connections so everyone can be represented and be able to draw on others for support. If any organization needed specific collaborations I would be able to reach out to various other organizations to get maximum participation that benefits everyone. I want to be active on campus and present at various programs and functions, including orientations to show how active we are as a school. VSU had a previous enrollment problem and this year as spirit and pride has increased the enrollment has sky rocketed! Imagine the impact for prospective students to see the Homecoming at orientation! It shows how active we are as a school and welcoming we are to everyone.

HC: What sets you apart from other candidates?

KR: What separates me form other candidates is that I have a true passion to serve VSU. I am not the type of person to do things for show or glory, I do work because it’s what I love! Success isn’t defined by how many people know your name or see what you are doing but by what you do when others aren’t watching, which is genuine leadership. 

Voting starts on Tuesday, October 18th on Campus Connect! HCXO!
