John Satira and Rhonda Bates Named Homecoming King and Queen

Only two students out of nearly 40,000 are endowed with Homecoming royalty each year. During halftime on Saturday, John Satira and Rhonda Bates became the newest Penn State Homecoming King and Queen suitors in front of more than 107,000 people.

The halftime announcement was chosen in lieu of the Friday night pep rally, which had been a staple of previous Homecomings but was canceled this year because of the Pegula Ice Arena opening.

Satira, from Murrysville, PA, is the President of Lion Ambassadors and an RA in East Halls.

Bates, from Philadelphia, is the president of the Student Minority Advisory and Recruitment Team (SMART) and is the Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration Day of Service Director.

Congratulations to the new King and Queen and everyone on this year’s Homecoming Court!
