Octavia Stallings said being named East Oktibbeha County High School’s 2011-12 homecoming queen was a great opportunity.
“it could only happen once in a lifetime,” Stallings said. “I feel honored that people look up to me and felt that I would make a great person to become queen and represent East Oktibbeha County High.”
Stallings was crowned EOCHS’ 2011-12 Homecoming Queen Friday night at 6 p.m. on the football field before the homecoming football game.
Principal Helen Kennard said Stallings is very conscientious and a leader in her class.
“She works hard and she strives to do well in her academics,” Kennard said. “She is a role model for other students in our school.”
Stallings said EOCHS means a lot to her because of the personal attention of the faculty and staff.
“Our teachers (care) a lot and try their best to help us in any way,” Stallings said.
After high school, Stallings has plans to attend Meridian Community College for two years and then transfer to Mississippi State University to major in elementary education.
She is the daughter of Amy Chandler of Crawford and Robert Chandler of Starkville.
Stallings said the person with the biggest influence on her life has been her mother, Amy.
“She encourages me to do my best at all times,” Stallings said. “My biggest accomplishment will be to finish school and make my mother proud (when I) become a teacher.”
She is a member of Oakland M.B. Church.
Outside of school, Stallings works at the Waffle House in Starkville. She also enjoys playing sports and meeting new people.
Other members of the 2011-12 East Oktibbeha County High School Homecoming Court include Senior Maid Jerneka Chandler, Junior Maid Shadira Evans, Junior Maid Julissa Reed, Sophomore Maid Quanisha Arnold, Sophomore Maid Marjada Tucker, Freshman Maid Jacqueria Sales, Freshman Maid Tatiyana Wilson and Eighth Grade Maid Nytoria Randle.
As part of Friday night’s events, the school honored Miss EOCHS Jamika Holmes and Mr. EOCHS Christopher Hunter.
The school also recognized Miss EOCES  Jackeria Neal and Mr. EOCES Zabien Wingo.
