For the first time, a SDSU Imperial Valley student has been selected to be on the Aztecs Homecoming Court, according to a SDSU press release.
Karla Lora-Acosta, a senior liberal studies student at SDSU Imperial Valley, will be one of 10 students on the Homecoming Court that will reign at the Aztecs’ Homecoming game set for 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 13, when SDSU hosts Nevada at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson. The release said the Homecoming Royals are announced at halftime.
Lora-Acosta’s selection to the Homecoming Court tops a weekend of firsts for SDSU Imperial Valley. SDSU Imperial Valley is teaming up with the San Diego campus to bring local audiences both an evening of classical music and an afternoon event featuring music and dance to celebrate our diverse community, per the release.
The concerts, the first held at SDSU Imperial Valley, included a classical music concert that was held Friday in Rodney Auditorium. A celebration of community in spoken word, song and dance featuring performers from both San Diego and the Imperial Valley will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday at SDSU Imperial Valley. Admission is free for both concerts.
SDSU Homecoming Court members are selected by a team of faculty, staff and alumni based on the individual’s leadership, school spirit, integrity, and achievement through their contributions and involvement to the university.
Henry Villegas, SDSU Imperial Valley interim Dean of Student Affairs, said, “As far as I understand she (Lora-Acosta) is the first from SDSU Imperial Valley selected for the Homecoming Court. And she is a great one. She represents the campus well.”
Lora-Acosta is an SDSU Imperial Valley Associated Students Senator. She also is president of the Aztec Dance Club.
