Twenty students are competing to become Western Kentucky University’s 2011 Homecoming queen.
Among the contenders is Stephanie Burba, a biology/science and math education major from Magnolia. She is the daughter of Glen and Robin Burba and is sponsored by Phi Sigma Pi.
Burba is also a recipient of a Science and Math Alliance for Recruitment and Retention of Teachers Scholarship. It provides $10,000 for the last two years of the teacher’s education program at WKU.
The winner will be crowned during halftime of the Hilltoppers’ Oct. 22 Homecoming game against Louisiana-Lafayette. The game will begin at 3 p.m. at Houchens Industries-L.T. Smith Stadium.
The theme for this year’s Homecoming is Geaux Toppers!
