To celebrate Halloween, staff and faculty members concealed themselves in decorative costumes, competing in a contest judged by students for a chance to win prizes. An idea brought to life by the Educational Outreach department, students entered the Whiteside Hall lecture room in droves to determine who was donning the most impressive Halloween garb and pick up Trick or Treat bags of candy and money ranging from $1 to $50.

Costume Contest Winners

English instructor David Jones won 1st place masked as the Grim Reaper. Yolanda Miller, executive assistant in the President’s Office, was chosen the 2nd place winner with a Mrs. Incredible suit and cosmetology instructor Shirley Ferguson-Hicks was awarded a gift card for placing 3rd in a lady pirate outfit. Charneshia Word, who works in the Admissions Office, placed 4th out of the 10 participants in clothing and make-up mimicking a ripped out heart.

Other personnel that participated in the contest included Student Engagement Director Karen Done, who transformed into a roaring CCC tiger, Linda Williams who imitated the Disney character Pocahantas, Business and Computer Information Systems instructor Jeremy Pittman who posed as Dark Link from the Nintendo video game ‘The Legend of Zelda,’ Helen Young who turned into a scary movie monster, Brenda Williams who also wore a pirate costume, and Arena Chambers who transformed into the lead character from the hit movie “Proud Mary.”

As the contest carried on, the on-campus Gambrell Childcare center children, who were all dressed in Halloween costumes, frolicked the front lawn of the Frank Gambrell Student Affairs Multi-Complex to enjoy a pumpkin patch. They also took a trip through the Lee Flowers Vocational Building for frightening fun and activities.
