Miss W SSV Homecoming
Shirley Eugenia Wright
She who carries the pride of WSSU
wherever she goes is our Miss Winston-
Salem State University, Miss Gloria Ann
Horne, a senior business administration
major. The daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Mackey Robinson, she has four sisters
and two brothers ranging in age from 1
to 10. Gloria, a native of Winston-Salem
is an Aries, twenty-one years of age.
Gloria came to WSSU mainly because
of its convenience. For here, she is able
to enjoy campus life while at the same
time being close to home. Upon entering
SU, she decided against teaching and
thus embarked upon the business field.
Since that time, Gloria has decided to
become an accountant or to pursue a
management position of some kind.
Having attended Anderson High, Gloria
was a member of the Spanish Club, Math
Club, Honor Society and Future Home
makers of America. Here at State, she
is a member of Alpha Kappa Mu, Phi
Beta Lambda and is a Reynolds scholar.
WSSU was very impressive to our
queen at first as she recalls her freshman
and sophomore years as her best. For
it was at this time that she was able to
engage in many social activities. Hovv-
ever, in advice to our new freshmen,
Gloria smilingly, would tell them “to
enjoy themselves but at the same time
apply themselves in their classes.”
Gloria would like to see WSSU make a
step toward progress and have co-ed
visitation. She feels that this would help
the school to advance, at least to the
point that other institutions have already.
Highlighting the conversation, Gloria
commented that her most memorable
experience at WSSU was being chosen as
Although she had no preconceived
ideas of running, she accounts her doing
so, through the influence and encourage
ment of a few friends. Nevertheless she
considers the title an honor and wishes
to make every effort to serve WSSU,

“Who’s that lady? . . . that beautiful
lady? . . . that lovely lady? . . . that

to pursue . . . Who?! None other than
our charming Miss Homecoming and
Miss WSSU who have already begun
their reign here at the university. These
queens were chosen during the spring
semester of last year to represent
Winston-Salem State University.
Shirley Eugenia Wright, Miss Home

Having considered the Macon School
of Nursing, North Carolina Agricultural
and Technical University along with
Emery University, Shirley chose WSSU
because of the reputation of its nursing
school. After arriving at SU, Shirley was
shocked at the size of the school. She
also admits that she experienced some
fright as a newcomer. Now however,
Shirley likes the school and thinks that
the people are extremely friendly.
Here at State, she previously played
intramural basketball and has been an
attendant to Miss Bickett Hall and as
Miss “Phi” on the Kappa Court. Present
ly our queen is a member of the Student
