Homecoming Court raises money for charities

Tickets for homecoming went on sale Monday at both campuses. As you pass by the promo table over the next two weeks, pay close attention to the five brightly colored jugs decorated with pictures (featured below). Not only are these pictures of the 2009 Homecoming Court, but the jugs are your way to help one of these five students win the title of Mr. or Ms. DePaul. Each member of the court chose a charity and decorated their jug accordingly to raise money for their cause. On Feb. 27, the last day of ticket sales, the money in each jar will be counted and the person who raises the most wins that round of the homecoming selection process.
Kelly Stotmeister (left), homecoming court committee, explains what the jugs are and the causes. Holly Eistnhart (right) watches the explanation while selling tickets for homecoming.

Here’s a little background information about homecoming court selection. Our school doesn’t have a king and queen, nor do they have both. A single person is chosen from the court and named Mr. or Ms. DePaul. This came about a few years ago when the number of men running for king dwindled. And Mr. and Ms. sounds a more modern then king and queen. That's the explanation I was given, maybe you could help me out. This year three ladies and two gentle men are in the running. Look for more ways to help each of them out next week during spirit week and don’t forget to buy your tickets for homecoming.
