Voorhees celebrates its 50th coronation ceremony

September 20, 2017

Senior mass communication major Terrianna McCullough will be crowned the new Miss Voorhees College on Friday, Sept. 22 in the Leonard E. Dawson Center.

McCullough’s theme will be “Celebrating 50 years of Beauty, Elegance, and Style,” which was inspired by her being elected as the 50th queen. Her platform will be aimed at encouraging her peers to become more involved in the community through time and service.

“This position is important because I will be able to make a difference at my institution, within the community, and personally. As the 50th Miss Voorhees College, this is an honor that I will cherish forever. Through my leadership, I plan to carry out the legacy of Voorhees founder, Elizabeth Evelyn Wright,” McCullough said.

President W. Franklin Evans said he feels there is no better candidate for the position. Evans recently accompanied McCullough to Washington for a conference because she was selected as one of the 2017 White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities student ambassadors.

“Ms. McCullough is talented, hard-working, and intelligent. She represents the type of leader that this great institution produces. I feel confident that she will be ready to go out in the real world after graduation and be successful,” Evans said.

As Miss Voorhees College, McCullough will serve as a liaison between the institution’s administration, Student Government Association, and the student body. She is a native of Lamar, S.C. and the daughter of Annie and the late Terry McCullough.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Megan Freeman, director of communications, at 803-780-1191 or at mfreeman@voorhees.edu.
