FAMU’s Royal Court to be Crowned Sunday

Imir Hall and Anquinette Taylor will be crowned at Florida A&M University’s 109th coronation Sunday, at 7 p.m. in FAMU's Lee Hall Auditorium.

FAMU students, alumni, faculty and members of the Tallahassee community will be in attendance to honor Mr. and Miss FAMU. The ceremony will feature appearances from kings and queens from organizations who will perform a waltz.

Anquinette D. Taylor, Florida A&M University’s 109th Miss FAMU, feels overwhelmed with joy.

“I’m just trying to get everything in place for Sunday,” Taylor explained. “I’ve been waiting for this for two-years now and the only way I can describe how I’m feeling right now is overwhelmed with joy. I am about to get coronated with amazing people, I’m so excited.”

LaDarius D. Calhoun, 2015-2016 Florida A&M University King of Orange and Green, is grateful to have the opportunity to be crowned.

“The thought of coronation has me a bit anxious and a bit overwhelmed,” Calhoun expressed. “I never thought I’d be wearing a crown to a FAMU coronation. It’s surreal. It’s like being King of Orange and Green has given me that piece of FAMU that I’ve always wanted. God is good.”

Crystal Sheffield, 2015-2016 Florida A&M University Junior Attendant, excited for coronation and all that comes with it.

“I’m really excited, it’s what I’ve been waiting for all semester.” Sheffield explained. “I can’t wait to see all of the other queens and kings for other organizations.”

The coronation will be followed by the Royal Coronation Ball, which will begin immediately after Coronation, in the Grand Ballroom.
