Katherine Mcbee, a senior broadcast journalism major and Chi Omega sorority member, told The Daily Toreador newspaper that she was very humbled and incredibly honored to be voted Homecoming queen.

“It means the world to me to be Homecoming queen,” she said. “I love this university so much. I’ve grown so much while I’ve been here. It’s just incredible to have the support of my sorority and the rest of Texas Tech and I’m just honestly so humbled.”

McBee said it was her sorority that nominated her to the court. She is the sixth Chi Omega to win Homecoming queen in the last seven years.

“It’s incredible,” she added. “The women of Chi Omega are beautiful, smart and driven women, and I am a better woman because of them.”

Andrew Whitley, a senior energy commerce major and Kappa Alpha fraternity member from Fort Worth, was voted Homecoming King.
