Homecoming plans were established during a court meeting Tuesday, Oct. 7.

The Homecoming court gathered to draw button colors for its individual campaigns.

The colors for the campaign were drawn as the following:

  • Marnie Arcilla – Green
  • Wendy Sixtos – Yellow
  • Jaci Navas – Red
  • Areal Hughes – Purple
  • Samantha Vasquez – Orange
  • Alejandra Luz – Pink
  • Stacey Sandoval – Blue

Candidates can start picking up the button on Monday, and if the campaigners don’t turn in the button at the end of the campaign, there’s a $5 fee.

Traditionally, mock rally mockers are males for females. In this specific case Navas asked if she could have a female instead of a male.

The court brought up fairness, being that the rest of the candidates would have males as candidates, but in the end, there were no objections.

“It went well. It’s just (the court) emphasize(s) too much on the Homecoming queen [being] feminine,” Navas said.

Navas was granted permission for a female mocker and a female escort to walk her out.

“The reason why I’m running for Homecoming queen is because I’m not feminine, but I’m still a beautiful young lady. I just happen to be LGBT (Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) and I love tuxedos, so (I’m going to) wear a tuxedo. Yeah, I’m excited,” she said.

Court also announced that the queen would be announced on Saturday, Oct. 18, during the halftime of the football game.

As far as gatherings, there will be court introductions on Monday, Oct. 13, at 11 a.m. and a Homecoming activity night on Tuesday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The mock rally will begin Wednesday, Oct. 15, at 11 a.m. and Homecoming elections will be held on that same Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 16.

Fall 2014 I am Alan Leyva, I'm pretty much a social junkie. I use my talkative social skills to get people comfortable in interviews. Strictly journalism is fun but I pretty much just want to be mainly in Public Relations as I choose my emphasis at a Cal state level. I live by Hollywood pretty much the entertainment capital of the world so why not be a publicist.
