What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?:
One of the most memorable contributions I have made so far as a Campus Queen was spearheading a Hurricane Harvey relief drive. With the help of faculty, staff, and the student body, we collected food, toiletries, clothing and monetary donations. These items were transported by Rust College students and our school chaplain, Reverend Kevin Kosh to Southern University's Wesley Foundation Camphor Memorial UMC in Baton Rouge, LA. As Miss Rust, my greatest vision is to cultivate a spirit of service to others in as many people as I can. My platform, "Let the Butler Serve You", is aimed at doing just that. Creating service project opportunities, such as this, allow us to strengthening our school and bridge the gap between the surrounding communities.
