He serves as vice president of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and is part of the Shorter University Ambassador team. Upon completion of his bachelor’s degree, Moon plans to continue his education at Shorter while studying for a master’s degree in business administration.
His parents are Fred and Cheryl Moon. He was escorted during homecoming festivities by his mother.
“When they called my name, I was shocked because any of the other young men on the homecoming court with me could have been king,” Moon said. “They each have impacted Shorter’s campus in a very positive way, so I feel honored to have been chosen.”
Spikes is a psychology major from Vero Beach, Fla. She is a member of the Shorter University track team, where she holds a school record in the 200-meter dash. Last season Spikes became Shorter University’s first sprint national champion, winning the 60-meter, 100-meter and 200-meter dash at the NCCAA Indoor National Championships.
She plans to continue her running career after graduation, with a goal of competing in the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
Her parents are Carolyn Hill and Johnnie Spikes. She was escorted during homecoming by her stepfather, Ant Hill.
Spikes said she is thankful to have been crowned this year’s homecoming queen.
“I had never participated in something like this, so I was shocked but happy to be selected as Shorter’s homecoming queen,” she said.
