North's homecoming queen competes for title

April 10, 2014
Meagan M. Curran, Grosse Pointe North High School's 2013 homecoming queen will hurry home from spring break April 26 to compete for the title of Michigan's 34th annual Homecoming Queen.

"This is new to me," Curran said of the competition. "I'm all for it. It will be really cool."

Curran, who will attend Arizona State to major in design management in the fall, travels to Lansing April 27 for the competition. She said she will be wearing a coral colored ball gown for the interview and presentation of the contestants. The winner receives a $10,000 scholarship and an all-expense paid trip to the national competition.

She will be competing with 23 other Michigan high school homecoming queens, including St. Clair Shores' Carly Vargo of Lake Shore High School, for the title.

To participate in the event, Curran had to fill out a resume and include information about her life and future plans. With her design management degree, Curran said, she would like to combine it with a business degree.

"I've always been an artistic person," she said.

Curran has played field hockey for four years and is captain and on the gymnastics team, serving as this year's captain. She has also run on the track team and played lacrosse, been involved in Students Against Destructive Decisions and Knots, working with autistic children, as well as having a job as hostess at Champs Rotisserie & Spirits.
