First-Ever Homecoming Alumni Court Announced

The Homecoming Executive Committee announced earlier this summer that in addition to having the usual Student and University Courts, Penn State alumni who formerly served as Homecoming Court Honorees will be able to relive the dream. Homecoming 2015 will be the first time that an Alumni Court will be presented along with the Student Court, allowing an opportunity for students and alumni to come together and connect over a love for Dear Old State.

After numerous alumni sent in applications, the Executive Committee finally determined the ten members of the court:

  • Joseph Budd (2005)
  • Tracey Edouard (2012)
  • Rene Garcia (2011)
  • Ben Jabara (2006)
  • Bruce Kent (1985)
  • Jennifer Leary (2006)
  • Kelley Lynch (1986)
  • Joan Hunter Miller (1952)
  • Rich Pirrotta (1986)
  • Megan Verbos (2007)

The court members were chosen based on their current involvement with the university as well as their answers to Stately application questions such as, “What does For The Glory mean to you?”

The members are guaranteed an eventful weekend as they will appear in both the parade on Friday night, Oct. 9, as well as the Homecoming game against Indiana on Saturday, Oct. 10 at noon.
