Caddo Centennial Names Whisenhunt as Reigning Queen
SSC can boast of numerous reigning queens on its campus: Homecoming, rodeo, yearbook, football, basketball, and several others. The neighboring town of Caddo now has added its queen to SSC’s list.
Shannon Whisenhunt, Caddo sophomore, was crowned queen of the Caddo Centennial last Monday night.
She was nominated by one of the Caddo townspeople and won by selling centennial plates and donations with a penny a vote.
The celebration ran last week with games, sack races, turtle races, baby contest and a watermelon seed spitting contest.
A beard growing contest was also conducted. The king of the beard contest crowned the queen of the centennial.
Miss Whisenhunt rode in a convertible during the parade preceding the rodeo.
She is a sociology major and a journalism minor. She can always be seen in the registrar office where she has worked the past year.
