Your sign is Aries. You like a

want it done right.
Candice Michaux, Miss Win

typical of those bom under Aries.
“Like my sign. I’ve got no fears

Candice, the daughter of
Roberta Carlton of Winston-
Salem, has lived in this city the
past seven years. Originally of
West Virginia, Candice has lived
much of her life in North
Carolina, having attended high
school in Durham.
As an art major, Candice said
she takes every available op
portunity to reach out for the

coronation ball, Candice sought
an atmosphere with the idea of
having the queens dressed in
midi, after-five wear.

Candice admitted she has
gotten some unfavorable com
ments about the change but she
said, “If somebody doesn’t try
something new, how do you know
if things will ever work? You’ve
got to explore.”
Art-in all forms-is her first
love. She works with the Student
Involvement Program of the
Winston-Salem Arts Council in
co-ordinating visual art
productions such as the summer
On holidays and special oc
casions, she takes advantage of
her own artistic abilities by
designing and drawing large
posters and signs and con
tributing them to area rest homes
She has worked in the Winston-
Salem public schools as a
paraprofessional for the past
several years. At one time or
another, she’s taught reading,
math and art in the system.
However, she has no plans to
“Of course I’d like to go to
graduate school,” she said. “I’d
like to be a modelling instructor
or a fashion illustrator.”
Modelling is one of Candice’s
many hobbies. When she gets a
chance to relax and do some of
the things she enjoys besides
modelling, she grabs a paint
brush or a tennis racket. She
enjoys singing also.
Candice has some definite
opinions on issues of concern to
black people. For one, she feels
“blacks definitely should
celebrate the Bicentennial. We

look more toward the future
instead of the past,” she said.

Miss Homecoming ’75
By Gloria Ross
An old French proverb says
that “Beauty is silent
eloquence.” If that be the case,
then Miss Patsy Lynch, Miss
Homecoming 1975, is a perfect
example of beauty at its’ finest.
Her demeanor reflects the kinds
of qualities desired in a woman
cho^n to represent WSSU at its

itself and with other colleges and
universities concerned Patsy

for the position of Miss
Homecoming. It is her desire to

WSSU in its’ own personal
Patsy, who is from Enfield,
N.C., is the daughter of Mrs.
Lelia Lynch. An Early Childhood
Education major, she is also a
member of NOTA. Her desire is
to work, perhaps in Winston-
Salem, as a tocher, and to
eventually go on to do graduate
study. Sie is also active in the Nu
A variety of activities maintain
her interests. Travel and sports
are among her favorites;
personally, she enjoys tennis. But
her favorite interest is children.
After completing high school,
Patsy worked as a teacher’s aid,
and she really found herself
involved in the kids with which
she worked. She naturally
decided to work with children.
Although she enjoys reigning
as Miss Homecoming, the
position does have its’ downfalls.
“Its’ not quite all that I expected
it to be,” explained Patsy. The
lack of activities and notoriety
that the pK)sition should carry is
what concerns her. She suggests
that the two Queens (Miss
Homecoming and Miss WSSU)
alternate on visits to other
universities and on planning
school-related activities. Not only
would that give each Queen equal
opportunities, but it would
provide a larger variety of ideas.
“Future Miss Homecomings will
feel more like representatives of
WSSU if that happens,” she said.
Miss Homecoming encourages
the Student Body to take an

other activities of Homecoming.
“We can really make this one of
the best Homecomings Winston-
Salem has ever had.”
