McPherson College announced its 2016 Homecoming king and queen during homecoming weekend on Oct. 15 – Landon Stang of Limon, Colo., and Erika Doty of Ottawa, Kan.

Stang is an honor roll student majoring in physical education and health with a minor in business administration and management. He was nominated as “emerging leader” in the college’s “Light and Life” Awards in 2014 and has worked as a resident assistant on campus.

He’s also a wide receiver on the football team, has served as a manager for the Bulldog volleyball team, and has competed as a jumper on the track and field team, contributing to the Bulldog men winning the program’s first-ever KCAC Championship in 2014.

Doty is also an honor roll student, majoring in business administration: management/marketing with double minors in psychology and international business and has worked as an MC resident assistant.

She was named a 2016 NAIA Daktronics Scholar-Athlete last spring for her performance in the classroom and on the cross-country team as well as the track and field team, as a distance runner. The same year that the men took the KCAC Championships, Doty was part of the 2014 women’s track and field team that also took the Championship crown. For them, the 2014 victory was the first championship since 1977.
