Homecoming Queen 2014 Candidates: Brittney McKinney
Brittney McKinney, 22
Senior sociology major, religious studies minor
Nominated by Metro Baptist College Ministry
Brittney McKinney is representing Metro Baptist College Ministry in this year’s homecoming queen competition.
Metro Baptist Christian Ministry is an organization that helps keep students connected with their spiritual faith while attending college. “We really try to keep kids connected to their moral and spiritual values,” McKinney said.
The nominee was born in Memphis, Tenn. but moved to Little Rock when she was two months old. She plans to attend grad school after graduation.
Her dream is to work for United Nations and the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) dealing with child development.
McKinney entered the Homecoming competition to reach out to other students about standing up for their religion. “[Homecoming] is not just about popularity but it’s about standing up for what you believe in, and truly being yourself, and growing while in college,” she said.
If she were President, the first thing she would accomplish is making discrimination illegal.
“I love all kinds of people. To me there is no barrier or difference. All people have hearts that need love, no matter what they look like or where they come from or what language they speak, we all have to be support one another,” she added.
McKinney loves to write music and poetry, and she can play the ukulele.
