Queen Senya plans to use the $3,500 Scholarship (generously donated by The Randall Group) to pursue a political science degree at Howard University in Washington D.C. When available, Senya will continue representing the Rose Festival throughout the year in special appearances, and will reign until the 2023 Queen is announced next June.

Queen Senya was an important member of the Ida B. Wells name change committee, and takes great pride in helping the school with that transition. She also produced and hosted a campus news magazine podcast “Hot Tea with Senya,” and loved participating in the Ida B. Wells choir as the lead soprano.
