at halftime of the big football game?
- Mary Beth Montgomery
This year's selection process is
underway, and the field has been nar
rowed to eight candidates from the
senior class. Students can vote on
Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the
Pit, outside the Campus Y building and
at Lenoir and Chase Halls.
In order to cast a vote, students must
present their identification card and
semester registration card. The IDs will
be marked to avoid repeat voters.
Bronwen Griffith, vice president of
the Carolina Athletic Association
(CAA), is the chairwoman for the
Homecoming Queen selection proc

received, and the CAA narrowed the
field to 16. A committee of four judges
interviewed the 16 candidates and se

Monteith. We're glad we had a voice."
