Ebony magazine has begun its annual HBCU Campus Queens voting competition, and the 2012-2013 Miss DSU, Jamesa McDonald, hopes her last official act will be to represent Delaware State University among the top 10 HBCU Campus Queens in Ebony's September edition.
McDonald is competing against 51 other hopefuls looking to crack Ebony's top 10 list. Last year, the 2011-2012 Miss DSU, Erica Grant, became the first Delaware State University Campus Queen to make Ebony's top 10.
McDonald, of Temple Hills, Md., will graduate Sunday with a bachelor's of science degree in political science. Her career goals are to become a lobbyist, especially for historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) on behalf of urban children.
Voting for the Campus Queens began May 8 and will continue through May 29. The public can vote twice a day. To vote for McDonald, visit ebony.com/campusqueens.
