Sandra Howery may not be the most popular homecoming queen candidate but she is certainly the most litigious. Howery is suing Sacramento State University after it failed to make her Queen despite what she alleges was more points in favor of her selection.
After Howery, 46, waited 28 years to finish her bachelor’s degree, she is not about to take the denial of her crown without a fight. She insists that she was told that the student who secured the most donations would win the title: “I knew that I donated a lot more than everybody else; I had over 1,400 points for donations,” said Sandra.
It now appears that they look at your essay, your activities, and an interview. It would not be the first intervention of a court in such a competition. In 1983, a court ordered formal balloting in the selection of a homecoming queen after a black candidate challenged the process at McGehee High School.
