Legends of the Mean Green : Homecoming Court

UNT's first homecoming queen, Nikki Hendrix, was elected in 1946 by the football team.  The football team would continue to elect the queen until 1952, when voting was opened up to the student body.  Each year, several UNT students are nominated for the honors and the student body votes to select the students that will represent UNT as its homecoming king and queen.
