Homecoming King Nominees
Senior, Sports and Recreation Management
Sponsoring Org: Kappa Kappa Psi
Hello! I'm a senior Sports and Recreation Management major. A&M - Commerce has become my second home and I have grown to love my job as a manager at the Morris Recreation Center. I'm a member of Kappa Kappa Psi, a music service fraternity, and I really enjoy playing in musical ensembles. I was also an inaugural member of the A&M-Commerce Rock Climbing Club, in which I now serve as President.
Sponsoring Org: Sigma Alpha Pi, The National Society of Leadership and Success
I am currently the President of The National Society of Leadership and Success otherwise known as Sigma Alpha Pi which has helped me to obtain leadership skills needed for my future. I aspire to become the best leader possible by becoming an accountant one day and hopefully fulfilling my dreams in one day becoming a forensic accountant. Over the past two years I have also been able to be on the Dean’s List.
Junior, Social Work
Sponsoring Org: Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc.
Hey Lions! My name is Vincent Phillips and I’d like to be your Homecoming King! I’d like to think that I am fairly active on campus and enjoy attending pretty much any school event! Last year I was chosen as the Outstanding Campus Leader of the year and since then I have been a pillar of pride, spirit, and integrity. Vote for V!
Sponsoring Org: Pi Kappa Alpha, Alpha Gamma Alpha
My name is Khanh Truong and I am from Vietnam. I am a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha International Fraternity, the President of the chapter of the American Chemical Society, and competed with the A&M-Commerce Calculus Team. I should be the next Homecoming King because, as an international student, I represent the vast diversity this University offers. Vote for King Khanh!

Hey, my name is Yolanda Anaya but many know me as Lucy. I grew up in the South East area of Dallas, TX and raised by my grandparents. I graduated from Seagoville High School in May 2010 and came in as a freshman to A&M-Commerce in the Fall of 2010. I have lived in Commerce since then and when I graduate I plan to move back to Dallas to work.
Brittany Leigh Bettes
Grad Student, Health Promotion
Sponsoring Org: Phi Pi Delta
I am currently pursuing a Master’s in Health Promotion, and am the president of the HHP majors club, Phi Pi Delta, as well as a member of the Sigma Alpha Pi. I would be an excellent representative of Texas A&M University-Commerce because of my involvement on campus, and my appreciation for this school and its traditions. It would be an honor and blessing to be selected to represent this great school as Homecoming Queen!
Senior, Elementary Education
Sponsoring Org: Kappa Delta
As an Elementary Education major, I am a 4-year member of the soccer team and Kappa Delta Sorority. I'm a Regent Scholar, earning my place on the President's/Dean's list 5 consecutive semesters. I will earn my Masters degree in Administration and go on to be a successful principal. I feel the only logical step for me to take to further represent my organizations while showing my school spirit is for me to run for Homecoming Queen.

With a strong family and friend base, and with God’s plan there is no limit to what I can accomplish.
