ORANGEBURG – SC State celebrates its 2007 Homecoming on Saturday, Oct. 27, 2007, in a contest that pits the Bulldogs against the Hornets of Delaware State University.
Reigning over SC State’s Homecoming festivities during its Centennial football season is senior Jessica Hosey, a Charleston, S.C., native and Hanahan High School graduate.
Hosey, an Elementary Education major, beat out eight other candidates for the prestigious honor. It is not the first such honor for the aspiring school principal, who previously was Miss Bradham Hall (2004-05) and Miss Mays Hall II (2005-06) at the University. And, while in high school, she was Miss Hanahan High as a senior.
Hosey is the eldest of two daughters born to Robert and Desiree Hosey of Charleston. Her younger sister, Jasmine, is also a student at SC State and a member of the Junior Class.
A very active student, Hosey is involved with both campus and community organizations. She is a member of the SCSU Pre-Alumni Council, the NAACP and HOSA (Health Occupational Students of America).
An SCSU Presidential Scholar as a freshman (Bronze Medallion), Hosey is presently a student assistant in the Miller F. Whittaker Library Computer Lab at the University, and this past summer, worked with both the campus Upward Bound and Gear-Up programs.
In her community, Hosey has been actively involved in several projects at her home church, Bethel AME Church in Charleston, S.C.
Upon graduating from SC State, Hosey, who enjoys traveling, shopping and reading, plans to enroll in graduate school and pursue a degree in school administration to fulfill her dream of becoming a principal.
The entire SC State family congratulates Jessica Hosey – Miss Homecoming 2007.
