Past Southeast Missouri State presidents in homecoming parade Oct. 26 | Schools
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - The theme for this year's Southeast Missouri State homecoming is “Honoring Tradition-Inspiring Success.” Past presidents Dr. Bill Stacy and Dr. Kala Stroup are serving as parade marshals on Oct. 26.
They are also returning for the re-dedication of Academic Hall.
According to Southeast, Dr. Stacy will serve as an honorary parade marshal. He served from 1980-1989. Dr. Stroup was the first female president serving from 1990-1995.
“They were chosen in keeping with the overall Homecoming theme of ‘Honoring Tradition-Inspiring Success’ because, as former Southeast presidents, they embody some of the University’s rich traditions,” Jay Wolz, the director of Alumni Relations, said.
The parade will begin at 9:30 a.m. at Capaha Park and travel east on Broadway. It then turns south on Main Street and ending near Hutson’s Fine Furniture.
Joanna Shaver, coordinator of the parade, said she has already received 115 entries, according to Southeast.
