Edward Waters College held their Homecoming celebration last weekend themed, “Preserving History, Promising Futures.” The event has been a staple in the community and serves as an entertaining cultural celebration.
“Preserving History, Promising Futures” consisted of the traditional events, which included the talent show, Fashion Show, Comedy Show featuring KWEBB, Greek Step Show, Hip-Hop concert featuring Plies, Alumni Spirit Breakfast and Homecoming Game. This year’s Homecoming celebration also included an Alumni Presidential Reception hosted by President Nathaniel Glover, and a Gospel Explosion Concert by the EWC Concert Choir.
Seniors Ja-Tavius McCardell and Keshari Millings were crowned the Homecoming King and Queen. McCardell is a Criminal Justice major and Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office Intern from Houston, Texas. Millings is an Elementary Education major from Atlanta, Georgia.
A highlight of the event was the Edward Waters College (EWC) National Alumni Association and friends who raised more than $20,000 for the institution. The presentation was made during half-time of the Homecoming game, where the EWC Tigers defeated the Newport News Apprentice School Builders 47-21.
