On Saturday, October 28, 2017, one of Special Olympics Louisiana’s interns, Mattie Hawkins, was named the 2017 Southeastern Louisiana University Homecoming Queen.

Mattie is studying to become a senior sports management major. She is the Chapter President of Delta Sigma Theta, a Project PULL mentor, a student worker in the Office of Disability Services, and an intern at Special Olympics Louisiana.

Upon hearing she had won Mattie was speechless, but afterwards said, “It was a major accomplishment to be crowned and I am proud to represent Southeastern Louisiana University and Special Olympics Louisiana.”
