Homecoming Queen candidate Caroline Burke said she values the importance of serve.

“I have never felt prouder to be an Ole Miss Rebel than I have today,” Caroline Burke said. “I am so thankful to everyone who has come out to support me. Being a part of the Ole Miss family has taught me about the importance of service. We love this university so we give back. That is why I believe that our Homecoming Queen should be focused on service and that’s what I plan to do if elected. HOTTY TODDY AND BEAT BAMA!!!”

Ole Miss students can vote online via MyOleMiss Tuesday, September 13 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
