November 3, 2018

OBU announced winners of the 2018 Harvest Court Saturday, Nov. 3, during halftime of the Bison football game versus Northwestern Oklahoma State University. The event was part of OBU’s homecoming celebration happening on campus throughout the weekend.

Senior students were nominated by their peers in six different categories: harvest queen, harvest king, best all-around female, best all-around male, most servant-like female and most servant-like male. The student body voted Monday, Oct. 29, to select winners in each category.

The 2018 harvest queen is Morgan Cherry, family and community services major from Midwest City, Oklahoma. The 2018 harvest king is Graham Griffin, Bible major and piano minor from Shawnee, Oklahoma.

The 2018 best all-around female is Anna Arrington, psychology pre-counseling major from Allen, Texas. The 2018 best all-around male is Jonathan Knox, biblical Languages major from McKinney, Texas.

The 2018 most servant-like female is Jasmine Mitchell, early childhood education major from Spring, Texas. The 2018 most servant-like male is Heath McClure, natural science major from Mesquite, Texas.

OBU has a long-standing tradition of crowning the harvest queen, with the first queen being crowned in 1920. The tradition of crowning a harvest king was added in 1996. The categories of most servant-like and best all-around have since been added, rounding out the six-member harvest court.

Harvest queen finalists included Savannah Payne and Stephanie Tucker, while harvest king finalists included Jacob Jolly and Josh Pumphrey.

Candidates for best all-around female included Kayla Thompson and Moriah Lamb, while finalists for best all-around male included Ben Cale and Bradley Hetherington.
