Mr. and Miss Freed-Hardeman University 2021 were celebrated Friday, April 23, during a special chapel presentation. Elected by the students, faculty and staff, the winners were Connor Creasy, a secondary education and history major from Milan, Tennessee, and Wisenie Jadis, a nursing major from Davenport, Florida.
FHU President David R. Shannon presented the winning students and Dr. Billy Smith, professor of Bible, was the master of ceremonies.
In addition to playing baseball for the FHU Lions, Creasy has been a member of Phi Kappa Alpha Social Club and the Student Athlete Advisory Council. “I appreciate how intentional the faculty and staff are in helping their students be successful not only in the classroom, but in life,” he said. After graduation, Creasy doesn’t plan to leave FHU. Instead, he will begin a master’s degree and continue his baseball career. He is the son of Linda and Jeff Creasy.
Jadis has been very active in her social club, Xi Chi Delta. She has held several leadership positions including vice president, girls’ president, treasurer and sophomore representative. She said, “I appreciate the community, family and home Freed-Hardeman has become for me.” Jadis plans to spend the summer as a youth intern in Knoxville and then return to Florida to begin her nursing career. Her parents are Claire and Miguel Jadis.
“Each year it is a privilege to celebrate the best of our student body. This time-honored tradition dating back to 1940 is a cherished part of Freed-Hardeman’s history,” Chris Ramey, director of alumni engagement, said.
Other finalists for Miss FHU were Emaleigh Board, an accounting major from Elizabethtown, Kentucky; Cassidy Shrader, a communication major with an emphasis in public relations from Columbia, Tennessee; and Hannah Young, a financial planning major from Rosedale, New York.
