The candidates for the 2022 North Central Missouri College Homecoming and Alumni Appreciation Day have been announced. Festivities will be held on Saturday, January 29th. Women’s basketball takes on North Platte Community College at 3:00 pm and men’s basketball tangles with Ellsworth Community College at 5:00 pm.
Nominees for king and queen had to be current NCMC sophomores in good standing, nominated by their club/organization, and selected by club advisors. The nominations were then narrowed down to eight finalists (four women, four men) selected by a committee of alumni, faculty, and staff. Current students vote on the candidates and the winners will be announced between the women’s and men’s games. Both games plus the coronation festivities will be live-streamed on the Pirates Digital Media website.
