Sheila Wilson, a valedictorian and 2007 graduate of Owen County High School, was recently honored to be on Murray State University’s homecoming court as a 2009 homecoming queen candidate.

Wilson was nominated by Murray State’s Agriculture Ambassadors.

As a nominee, she went through an application and interview process, competing against young women from Murray State’s campus. The top five candidates were chosen by the interview panel based on academic standing, personal interests, and most importantly, involvement in extracurricular activities at Murray State.

Wilson is involved in several activities including serving as Block and Bridle Club president, Sigma Alpha Sorority scholarship chair, Agriculture Ambassador, and member of the Agriculture Leadership Council. Some of her honors and awards include Murray State Presidential Scholar, Senator Jeff Greene Scholar, honorary commissioner of agriculture, and Murray State dean’s list and honors Program. Sheila was also a contestant in the Miss Murray State University Scholarship Pageant this past spring.

Wilson is the daughter of Curnie and Muriel Wilson and the great-granddaughter of Irma Anderson, all of Glencoe.
