Vicksburg native Ann Wallace DeRossette will serve on the University of Mississippi’s Homecoming Court as Student Body Maid during the Golden Eagles’ Oct. 7 homecoming game against the Old Dominion Monarchs.
DeRossette earned her title following a Monday runoff election for Homecoming Queen, during which her opponent won by a slim margin of 18 votes.
“Southern Miss, I cannot thank you enough for your love, support and encouragement these past two weeks,” DeRossette said in a social media post announcing her title. “We ran a very close campaign, and I am so honored to serve as your Student Body Maid. So many ‘Southern Mem’ries’ ahead, and I can’t wait.”
