Transcript The Royal Court President Arthur K. Smith and his wife June congratulate Homecoming queen and king Pauline Tosto and Bill Hoover. ii Bill and I looked at each other and said, bh my God, after we heard our names announced at the game for queen and king. ^ AttentionI Pauline Tosto and Bill Hoover receive a saber salute from the ROTC as they walk down the 50- 322 PEOPLE Hew year, Hew York Pauline Tosto and her friend ring in the new year in New York City. Crowning Achievement o f Homecoming omecoming queens are usual- f~"my said to be outgoing, hard- M. Xworking, intelligent, personable and active in campus and community organizations. This description, however, only begins to describe the 1999 University of Houston Homecoming Queen Pauline Tosto. Tosto, a MIS and accounting junior, won the honor at the 1999 Homecoming game against Cincinnati. "I can honestly say I did not expect to win it," she said. Originally from New York, Tosto lived in Virginia before moving to Houston in 1994. When she graduated from high school, UT was the "place to be," so Tosto applied and stayed for about a year and a half. However, unable to get a dorm room, Tosto said she just didn't enjoy living in an apartment in Austin, so she transferred to UH in 1998. Once here, Tosto became involved on and off campus and has yet to slow down. Now the President of Delta Gamma Fraternity, she has also resided as Director of Activities and Vice-President of Membership. Delta Gamma is the organization that sponsored both her and Bill Hoover for homecoming candidates. In order to be considered for the court, a student must be sponsored by an organization. Candidates are then interviewed by a panel of alumni and are expected to be well versed in UH history and tradition. Tosto recalls how she began to recite the alma mater but had to start over and sing because she couldn't remember it any other way. Tosto was one of 10 participants ( five women and five men) of the Homecoming court announced at the pep rally the day before the game. Besides Delta Gamma, Tosto has also served as the Vice-President of Interior Affairs for Student Foundation, participating in activities such as the Big Switch with UH President Arthur K. Smith. She now serves an executive role in the organization, volunteering time where she can. In addition to her work on campus, she also interns 20 hours a week for Shell Services International. She volunteers as well at In-Roads Houston, which sponsors internships for students. She has also served as President for its chapter at UH. Through dedication, service and heart, Tosto has worn her crown with the dignity and respect her homecoming title carries. • by Michelle Norton „9 Univers, of Houston Homecoming Queen, Pauline Tosto, juggling work, school and community service is all in a dayk work.
