Sigma Kappa's Goethel, Delta Tau Delta's Hendershot named Homecoming royalty


Marietta College’s Brenna Goethel ’13 (Nashville, Tenn.) and Vincent Hendershot ’13 (Belpre, Ohio) were crowned 2012 Homecoming royalty during halftime of the Pioneers’ football game against Ohio Northern on Saturday (Oct. 13).
The announcing of king and queen was just one of the many highlights in a weekend full of activities for students and alumni. There were special class receptions, an alumni awards ceremony, and an all-alumni tailgate at Hermann Fine Arts Center.

The weekend also included the inauguration of Marietta’s 18th president, Dr. Joseph W. Bruno, who crowned the Homecoming winners with his wife, Diane.

Representing Sigma Kappa, Goethel is the daughter of Dan and Kelly Goethel. She will earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in Broadcasting with a minor in Communication Studies in May.
Henderson, Delta Tau Delta’s nominee, is the son of Roger and Gail Hendershot. He is majoring in Spanish with minors in Biology and Health Communications.
