DENMARK -- Voorhees College crowned Luvasia Boyd and Keenan Brown as Mr. and Miss Homecoming 2017 during the Student Government Association Homecoming service on Nov. 7 at St. Philip’s Chapel.

Boyd, 26, is a senior business administration major from Bronx, New York. She is a member of the Golden Touch Organization, the Eta Nu Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. and Miss Black & Gold 2017. She is the daughter of Leroy and Vance Boyd.

Boyd decided to compete for Miss Homecoming to continue her heavy involvement with campus activities. “My participation in Homecoming represents my dedication and loyalty to this great institution during these last four years. This is one of the biggest events of the year. I’m excited to carry the title before becoming an alumna,” she said.

After graduation, Boyd plans to pursue a master’s degree in business administration.

Brown, 22, is a senior sports management major from Manning. He is a member of the Gentlemen’s Social Club, the Sigma Theta Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. and the Voorhees College Track and Field Team. Brown is the son of Eddie and Helen Brown.

He said he decided to compete because he wanted to set the tone for leadership for the Class of 2021. “To be crowned as Homecoming king is an honor. I am excited about the opportunity to be a student ambassador during such an exciting time,” Brown said.

He said Voorhees is a tight knit community that is like a home away from home. He said he appreciates that Voorhees encourages students to take advantage of all the resources available to them while they are at the college.

After graduation, Brown plans to volunteer as a football coach at his alma mater, Manning High School, and pursue a master’s degree in sports medicine.
