By PAUL LaPANN ( , Parkersburg News and Sentinel

Maureen "Mo" Earley of Vienna is a big person on campus at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C. Earley, a 2009 graduate of Parkersburg Catholic High School, was elected Homecoming Queen by the student body during Wake Forest's Homecoming the weekend of Sept. 22. Earley said she was advised by the previous year's queen to wear the Homecoming crown for the entire second half of the football game or else the Demon Deacons would lose the game. She wore the crown and Wake Forest defeated Army, 49-37. Earley co-hosts a campus radio show, "Mo Emma, Mo' Problems," that airs live on Sundays at 11 p.m. The show, which can be accessed at and clicking the play button, features music, discussion on current topics and jokes, Earley said. Earley is president of the Outdoor Pursuits adventure program at Wake Forest whose members will be attending Bridge Day at the New River Gorge on Oct. 20. She will be attending a conference called "Terra Madre" this month in Torino, Italy, a gathering of the "Slow Food" movement, which promotes fresh foods obtained from local farms and small stores. Earley is a senior majoring in sociology, entrepreneurship and social enterprise. Her parents are Fred Earley and Donna Smith of Vienna. It has been a "phenomenal experience" attending Wake Forest, Earley said.
