SHE’S NOT YOUR AVERAGE HOMECOMING QUEEN.
Vickie Whitt is a breast cancer survivor, a mother, and a grandmother. And at the age of 56, she was crowned UNCG Homecoming Royalty.
After beating cancer in 2015, Vickie decided to go back to school. The communication studies major took full advantage of the college experience – she got involved in student groups, worked on campus, and cheered on Spartan sports teams. Along the way, she shared her story, fought for a cure, and inspired others – and she has the crown to prove it.
What’s next for the recent grad? She hopes to return to UNCG as a master’s student, while helping other adult students find their way.
