Northeast Mississippi Community College’s student body recently elected Booneville’s Lainey Stevens to reign as the college’s 2017 Homecoming Queen.

During her first year at Northeast, Stevens was a Student Government Association freshman representative and employed as a work study student on campus.
Following her time at Northeast, Stevens plans to transfer to the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) to major in Integrated Marketing Communications (IMC) with a minor in business.
When she is not busy at the college, Stevens is an active member of Gaston Baptist Church where she is a member of the missions committee.
