BOONEVILLE — Northeast Mississippi Community College’s student body has selected Kossuth’s Alli Seago to reign as the college’s 2020 Homecoming Queen.
Seago and the entire 2020 Northeast Homecoming Court will make their first official appearance at a pep rally in their honor on the lawn in front of the Ramsey Student Services Building on Thursday, October 15 at 12:10 p.m.
In a change with tradition and to abide by coronavirus (COVID-19) precautions, the homecoming court will be presented before the Northeast Tiger football team’s game against Coahoma Community College that night instead of halftime.
Northeast’s 2020 Homecoming will mark the sixth straight year that Northeast has held its Homecoming festivities on a Thursday night.
From 2010 to 2014, the college held its Homecoming ceremonies on Saturday afternoons but switched back to a Thursday night affair in 2015.
However, this is the first time in recent history that the Homecoming court has been presented pre-game as opposed to halftime.
Seago, a 2019 graduate of Kossuth High School, is the daughter of Bo and Holly Seago.
At Northeast, Seago has been active in and outside of the classroom during her two years as a Tiger.
Currently, Seago is a member of the Student Government Association, where her peers elected her as the secretary of the organization for the 2020-2021 academic year.
Seago is also a member of the Iota Zeta chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society, where she serves as a chapter historian.
In addition to her time in the Student Government Association and Phi Theta Kappa, Seago is also a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and serves as a diamond girl for the Northeast baseball team.
During her freshman year in Booneville, Seago was voted as a freshman class favorite.
Seago can usually be found during football games, cheering on the Tiger football team as a two-year member of the Northeast cheerleading squad.
After Northeast, Seago plans to attend the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) and become a speech-language pathologist.
After college, the Kossuth native plans to work to foster the development of social communication skills and improve an individual’s ability to carry out tasks necessary for successful daily living as a speech-language pathologist.
When not busy in Booneville, Seago is a member of the Kossuth Baptist Church.
Joining Seago on the 2020 Homecoming court at Northeast includes six sophomore maids: Destiny Crunk of Booneville, Kamryn Cole of Booneville, Annah-Claire Isbell of Rienzi, Lexie Pharr of Booneville, Shelby Simmons of Mooreville and Mallory Wilson of Booneville.
Freshmen maids include Brantley Carter of Corinth, Addison Finch of Saltillo, L’Zareya Howard of Corinth, Hadley Jackson of Corinth, Ally Melton of Ripley and Marlee Turner of Corinth.
Corinth’s Hayden Scarbrough will serve as the escort for Seago.
Escorts for sophomore maids include Jacob Compton of Southaven, Conner Davis of Booneville, Tate Dickerson of Booneville, Chase Johnson of Corinth, Brandon McKinzie of Blue Mountain, and Joseph Williford of Booneville.
Escorts for freshmen maids include Avery Barnett of Booneville, Nikko Gusman of Baldwyn, Robert Peyton Lee of Corinth, Jon Thomas McCoy of Saltillo, Alex Marshall of Corinth and Ryan Willard of Etta.
