Eastern announces 2013 Homecoming parade


WILBURTON, OK (Sept. 25, 2013) – A homecoming parade in downtown Wilburton is an annual tradition for Eastern Oklahoma State College and this year will be no different. The parade will begin at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2.

The theme for this year’s parade is “Mountaineers Forever,” celebrating 105 years of continued excellence in education.

“The homecoming parade allows everyone to illustrate what Eastern represents to them,” said Jayna Miller Santine, co-chair of the homecoming parade. “The Mountaineers Forever theme reminds each one of us, individuals and businesses, how EOSC has been and is a part of our lives.”

Applications are being sought from the EOSC student clubs, as well as community clubs, organizations and businesses for floats, bands, decorated vehicles and walking groups.

“We are very excited to have the support of Roy’s Cardinal Food Store as the parade sponsor,” said Treva Kennedy, Director of Institutional Advancement. “The generous support of this local business will be used to help enhance the float entries.”

The parade will start at the corner of NE 2nd and Main Streets, traveling west to NW 2nd Street. The community is invited to join EOSC in downtown Wilburton to watch the parade.

Application forms are available online at www.eosc.edu/homecoming and questions may be directed to 918-465-1759 or alumni@eosc.edu.
