Congratulations to Morgan George and Darnei Hairston, the new Mr. and Ms. Wilberforce University. Crowned during a live streamed two hour event, Ms. George and Mr. Hairston were selected among nine candidates by a panel of judges after a five part process.
“My first order of business is, I want to engage everyone. I want to meet with faculty team members, I want to meet new students who are here for the summer and I also want to meet with alumni to put together a big plan to help the school grow.” – Darnei Hairston, Mr. Wilberforce University, 2021-2022
The categories by which they were evaluated include school spirit and knowledge of university history, talent, their formal wear appearances, and their responses to a question and answer segment.
“The first thing on my agenda is to meet with the academic board to find a solution to raise our retention rates.” – Morgan George, Ms. Wilberforce University, 2021-2022
Selected as Mr. Senior is Patrick McClendon, Ms. Senior, Dazaria Matthews, and as Ms. Junior, Kya Dukes.
Ms. George and Mr. Hairston will represent the university as official student spokespersons for events, to the media, and as student advisors to the president’s cabinet. Their reign ends in July of 2022.
