Vote for Jessica Lillian Dedeaux and ask everyone else you know to also vote for her.
She is the reigning Miss Tuskegee University who is competing for the title of EBONY HBCU Campus Queen.
Before we turn our attention back to the EBONY project, here’s an interesting fact about this young lady. She is a graduating senior, majoring in Aerospace Science Engineering.
To explain the competition, EBONY magazine states on its Website that, “Historically Black Colleges and Universities were founded to promote Black excellence and brilliance, and each reigning beauty was elected by her peers and/or school officials to represent those standards for her institution of higher learning. Meet the Queens to find out more about the dynamic queens representing HBCUs nationwide and vote for your favorite. You are allowed to vote as many times for as many queens as you like. So keep coming back every day.”
Voting has been extended until 11:59 p.m. on January 31, 2018.
