Hi everyone my name is Natalie and I am going to be a senior this year at Lewis. I have been very involved on campus since I was a freshman, and while most of my activities have been through the University Ministry department and the Admissions office, I have also tried out other activities as well. Some of my favorites have been being a tour guide for prospective families, being a student leader for our Catalyst and Koinonia retreats, and performing in the Christmas show at the Philip Lynch Theatre! I have also been an overnight host, sang in Harmonic Uprising, lead/attended LUMINATE trips, and been a liturgical minister. I have also attempted to play intramurals (I wasn't the MVP but had a lot of fun!!). In my free time I love to watch movies, eat a lot of junk food, and watch any kind of pro sports. I would like to be Flyer Queen because Lewis has been such a big part of my life and representing the University in this way would be such an honor!

Major: Early Childhood Education
Why should you vote for Steph Daley for homecoming? Well that's a good question? So I'll work giving a great answer. I would love to represent Lewis and the student body as the homecoming queen to promote school spirit. Each college experience is all about how every person indulges in the environment. The size of the school does not matter- what matters is what you make of it. I have loved my experience here at Lewis because I have followed my passions and gotten involved. Over my three years here, I have gotten involved in dance, theater and university ministry. Even though these are personal passions, I've learned something greater. The community has offered a greater experience than the activities alone. I would not trade my college experience for anything and I would love to share this positive experience with all! In "Mean Girls" fashion, I'm sure the crown is plastic, and so we can all have a piece;)
Major: Secondary Education and History
Minor: African American Studies
Hello all. A little tidbit of information: I am an education and history major and an African American studies minor and pride myself on good grades, and I am advocate for education.
And now for the good stuff…
When I found out I was nominated for homecoming queen, I was a little shocked because I never saw myself as the homecoming queen type; nonetheless I am honored and excited to be nominated for queen. It speaks volumes to know the work and commitment I put in to Lewis University is noticed and appreciated. Being crowned queen has a lot of qualifications: are you involved on campus, are you a leader, do you have a good personality, etc.; it’s not just a popularity contest anymore. Since my freshman year I have been actively involved in organizations such as class councils, BSU, SGB, Sigma Gamma Rho, LASO, and NPHC; and have held executive positions in all, but one of these organizations. Support is very important among the Lewis community, and I try and support as many organizations as I possibly can and attend their events. I would be truly honored if I was elected homecoming queen and would represent the school and student population well. Homecoming week will be amazing and I will actively participate in as many activities as I possibly can. My personality exudes with all I do and it will definitely radiate if I am blessed enough to be crowned as your 2013 homecoming queen.

A king is someone who is highly respected, successful, loved, and popular. In order to be considered a king, one has to be loved and respected simultaneously amongst his fellow peers. A king also possesses leadership traits and maintains composure in times of chaos. The simple gesture of being nominated and presented the opportunity for Homecoming King is an honor in itself. This nomination demonstrates that I possess the characteristics of being a king and I am highly regarded among the student body at Lewis University. Being President of Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity Inc. has given me the experience and knowledge expected of a king. Leading an organization isn't as simple as it seems, but my brothers have confidence and faith in my abilities to successfully manage our organization's best year ever. My brothers, friends, and peers think I should be King, so why shouldn't you.
