Vote for Jessica Nathan to be featured in Ebony Magazine
Vote once. Vote twice. Vote day. Vote night. Vote as often as you like for Miss Stillman 2012-2013 Jessica Nathan to be included in the Ebony Magazine Campus Queens edition. Ebony Copy Editor Shirley Henderson states that, contrary to what some people believe, there is no limit to the number of times per day that individuals can visit http://www.ebony.com/campusqueens and vote for their favorite campus queen.
“Some people vote a hundred times a day,” states Henderson, who adds that the deadline to vote has been extended to June 7, 2013.
Administration, faculty and staff at Stillman are competing to see which departments log the most votes for Jessica each day. It is important to vote because there are over fifty contestants from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) throughout the nation, and only the top ten will be featured in Ebony’s September, 2013 Campus Queens issue. Hiawatha Lee, administrative assistant to the provost, hopes that the competition will remind everyone to keep voting.
“I try to vote at least twenty times a day for Jessica. She was an excellent Miss Stillman. She was always ready to help on campus and in the community. She is so intelligent and so well spoken. But she is down to earth—no airs,” says Lee. “I’ve read Ebony since I was a teenager, and the Campus Queens issue was always one of my favorite features each year. It’s such an honor for a young woman to be in the magazine, but I am proud of Jessica just for being on the website.”
Dr. Charlotte Carter, Vice President of Retention, adds, “The Stillman persona is so evident in Jessica. She is a leader who knows what she wants and pursues her goals diligently. She is an excellent example for others in that she does not allow obstacles to prevent her from succeeding. We want to help her be in Ebony by voting frequently because this is something that she has always wanted and because she has been an outstanding Miss Stillman.”
Jessica, who intends to pursue a master's and doctoral degree in Higher Education Administration, plans to become a Dean of Students or Vice President of Student Affairs at a college or university. She says that her most memorable contribution to Stillman was the implementation of her platform, "Because You're Worth It: Discovering Your Inner Self," through programs such as the Treat Her Like A Lady Panel, Royal Duties: A Queen's Workshop, Empower Workshop: Know Your Worth, and R.E.G.A.L. Ladies Mentoring Program. In addition to the Queens Association and the Student Government Association, she was also active in the Psychology Club, Pre-Alumni Council, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and Stillman Ambassadors. She also served as a Student Orientation Leader and helped to promote school spirit and raise funds for the 2nd Annual Campus Queens Association Helping Hands Scholarship.
Jessica says, “I am so excited about this amazing opportunity. I hope that everyone will vote for me to be one of the top ten Campus Queens. Not just for me, but for my institution as well as for young girls who have big dreams. I want to show them that anything is possible if they believe.”
