Ebony’s new Campus Queens have been named!
The search for queens stretched from Texas Southern University to University of the District of Columbia and every HBCU in between. Only the top ten with the most votes are picked to represent their college, though.
Returning HBCUs to be featured in the 2013 edition include Jackson State University, Tougaloo University, Hampton University, Florida A&M University and Tuskegee University.
Janelle McKelvey, Miss Cheyney University, made school history by being the first queen to be featured in the monthly publication.
Ebony will reveal the new Campus Queens in its September issue. The magazine annually acknowledges women dedicated in their goals and committed to the importance of education at HBCUs.
Congratulations to the winners:
Tiffany Hallback, Miss Savannah State University
Geralka Jackson, Miss Grambling State University
Moriah Lark, Miss Hampton
Jasmine Yates, Miss FAMU
Sarah Brown, Miss Jackson State
Airnecia Mills, Miss Alcorn State University
