My name is Katie McManus, and I am being sponsored by Zeta Tau Alpha on the 2011 Homecoming Court. The chance to serve on Homecoming Court has been a once in a lifetime opportunity!
Homecoming is one of Virginia Tech’s greatest traditions, and there is no reason not to have an amazing time and live it up! There are many events throughout the week that’ll let anyone and everyone show their Hokie pride.
My campaign slogan is “McManus I’m Lovin’ it” after the one and only McDonalds. My campaign will follow the attitude of someone driving through McDonalds after winning a Boardwalk piece during the Monopoly promotion; excited, energized and pumped up!
Most importantly, my goal during this year’s Homecoming is to make it an incredible experience for my sponsoring organization and the Tech community as a whole.

Now to tell you a little about myself! I am from Cleveland, Ohio and will be graduating VT with a marketing major and a leadership & social change minor.
I have worked in the Tech football office for the past three years and grew up in a football family as the daughter of a college football coach. It was no surprise when I chose to attend Tech because we all know nothing can beat game day in Lane Stadium.
I am involved on campus serving as the Vice President of Student Conduct for the Panhellenic Council and most recently served as the Executive Director for Up ‘til Dawn, a program supporting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
After graduation, I hope to move to New York City to work with IMG doing endorsement deals for professional athletes.
If I were to win Homecoming Queen, it would be my plan to use social media to show the greater Tech community all the incredible accomplishments that our students are achieving. Many students are both innovative, creative and truly living the values of Ut Prosim and deserve the recognition.
Also, I would hope to serve the Hokies as a respectable diplomat, one that exemplifies Hokies Respect and our communities tradition, “That I May Serve.”
Thank you for reading my column, and VOTE MCMANUS I’M LOVIN’ IT!
