Miss UMES has been stripped of her crown and sashes due to "unbecoming" behavior of her position. The University of Maryland Eastern Shore felt it was no longer appropriate to keep Porsha Simone Harvey the campus queen.

WebPro News reported March 1 that the Newark, Del. native has had a series of troubles with campus police. A few weeks ago she was cited for "disruptive behavior" at a gathering. When police told her to leave a crowded hallway, she got confrontational. When authorities tried to remove her, she reportedly hit the officer and yelled at him to let go of her. Miss UMES was arrested for disorderly conduct and refusing to obey an officer's lawful orders.

It did not end there. A couple days after those charges were filed, she was cited for marijuana possession in court.

Havery, 21, was released of her title by the UMES Office of Campus Life.

The UMES letter called Harvey's behavior as “inconsistent with a UMES student and someone of [her] position.”

Judging by the recent actions of Miss UMES, the organization made the right decision revoking Porsha Simone Harvey's title as campus queen. Women in those positions have a responsibility to carry out model behavior of good citizens.
