Amory Cox, a junior biology major from Campbellsville, was crowned University of Kentucky fall homecoming queen on Saturday, Oct. 27. She represented Sigma Chi Fraternity.

Cox was among about 30 girls who were nominated for the title by Greek organizations, clubs, the band and other student-led groups. The nominees had to complete an application, and a committee of professors and local business leaders narrowed the pool to 10.

Those 10 were then interviewed by another committee, which selected the five finalists. The finalists' pictures and bios were posted online where UK students voted.

A Singletary Scholar, Cox has maintained a 4.0 GPA and will bypass her senior year with an early admission to pharmacy school. She is a member of Alpha Delta Pi sorority, where she serves as recruitment vice president.

Her campus involvement also includes working as a UK Visitors Center tour guide, singing with "Paws and Listen," serving as an honors program student mentor, a UK FUSION team leader and a member of the UK Leadership Summit.

Cox is the assistant choreographer for Kentucky's Junior Miss Scholarship Program.

She is the daughter of Ben and Regina Cox of Campbellsville.
