Griffin Wagoner and Semoni Weaver recieved their crowns at the Homecoming game.

Griffin Wagoner and Semoni Weaver were crowned Mr. and Miss Marshall on Saturday, Sept. 30, at the Homecoming game. 

With platforms based on foster care and domestic violence awareness, the Homecoming royalty winners said they are excited to start making changes to the Marshall community.

“What’s next is getting action started in my platform,” Weaver said. “So, meeting with the correct people and just applying my platform into Marshall and the Huntington community.”

Meanwhile, as the new Mr. Marshall, Wagoner said he would “work hard and put together [his] platform.”

“Starting October first, Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we’ll be hosting a community and campus-wide item-of-need drive for the survivors in Branches Domestic Violence Shelter here in Huntington,” he said.

He plans for the community to put together welcome home baskets to donate to the shelter.

Wagoner was sponsored by his fraternity, Alpha Sigma Phi and the Criminal Justice Association; meanwhile, Weaver was sponsored by the Residence Hall Association.

The Homecoming court was introduced by Student Body President Walker Tatum and Matt James, director of alumni relations.

Nevaeh Harmon, Miss Marshall from 2022, announced the winners over a pre-recorded video, and Calvin Hunter, Mr. Marshall 2022, attended the game to crown Wagoner. 

Harmon could not attend the game because she competed in the 2023 Miss USA pageant in Nevada the day prior.

“It feels amazing,” Weaver said about her win. “I’m so glad to be able to represent so much at Marshall University and be a small representation for everything that I’m a part of.”
