Why did you want to be on Homecoming Steering Committee?
I wanted to be a part of the greatest tradition on any University’s campus. The fact that each year Mizzou has put on Homecoming for over 100 years is incredible and I wanted to maintain and improve the high standard that Mizzou Homecoming is known for! Also being apart of this committee allows me to get to know the students that share the same love for Mizzou as I do.
