Homecoming Executive Board announces totals, contest winners


Northwest Missouri State University capped its 2021 Homecoming Nov. 1 with its awards ceremony announcing winners of competitions throughout the annual celebration.

Northwest hosted its Homecoming week, “Bearcats Remember When,” Oct. 24-30, with a variety of activities, including traditions such as the Variety Show, the annual International Flag-Raising Ceremony, the Homecoming parade and the Homecoming football game. The University also welcomed the classes of 1970 and 1971 during its annual Golden Years Society Reunion.

During Friday’s Variety Show, Ryan Shurvington and Annie Punt were crowned Northwest’s Homecoming king and queen. Shurvington, of Clever, Missouri, is a senior agricultural education major. Punt, of Omaha, Nebraska, is a senior communication major with a public relations emphasis.

As a result of Northwest’s annual Homecoming canned art contest, student organizations donated 600 pounds of food to the Maryville Ministry Center and 813 pounds to the Bearcat Food Pantry.

Northwest’s 2021 Homecoming Executive Board consisted of Rylie Goeders, a senior business management and marketing major from Story City, Iowa; Bailee Urban, a senior therapeutic recreation major with a minor in Spanish from Elkhorn, Nebraska; Rebecca Danforth, a sophomore applied health exercise science major from Kansas City; and Amberlea Auffert, a marketing, business management, and management information systems with an emphasis in web development major from Maryville.
