NEO Announces 2012 Homecoming Theme: “Blue & Gold Never Get Old”
Miami, Oklahoma – Tuesday, August 7, 2012 – Officials at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M
College (NEO) recently announced the 2012 homecoming date is scheduled for Saturday, Oct.
13, 2012. This year’s theme, “Blue & Gold Never Get Old” was selected by a vote from the
NEO student government.
“This year’s theme really displays how our student body recognizes the importance of our Blue
& Gold traditions,” said Lisa Severe, chair of the homecoming committee. “Homecoming
traditions include the Alumni Banquet where we honor outstanding NEO Alum, the crowning of
our new NEO King & Queen, the parade around campus, and of course our football game.”
“This year we will continue with some newer traditions such as turning the fountain blue, the 5K
run, and this year we are adding a 5K fun walk,” Severe added.
Homecoming activities will begin at 6 p.m. on Sunday, October 7, 2012 when we gather at the
Administration building to turn the fountain blue. The community is invited to attend.
*NEO's full schedule of events for the week of homecoming will be released in the near future.
