Northwestern announces homecoming theme and honorary parade marshal

August 27, 2015

After reviewing several submissions, the Northwestern Oklahoma State University/Alva Homecoming committee selected “Ranger Nation: Ride of Fame,” as the 2015 theme.

The option was turned in by Melissa (Law) McGaughy, a 2004 Northwestern alumna.

Student and community groups are encouraged to create a float that incorporates this theme for Homecoming, which is set for Oct. 8-10.

Leading the parade on Saturday, Oct. 10, will be the family of the honorary parade marshal Dr. Charles White, who recently passed away. For 23 years, Charles White worked in various positions at Northwestern. During those years, most of his time was spent as a professor of education and psychology as well as chair of the division of education and psychology.

For the submission, McGaughy will receive $25 in Alva Chamber Bucks and a Homecoming button. Homecoming button sales kick-off will be announced at a later date.
