KATIE MacTurk and Megan Edwards got the best Valentine's Day gift they could have asked for yesterday.
St. Joseph's University's alumni association announced that the lesbian couple were the winners of its controversial "How I Met My Hawkmate" Facebook contest, based on the number of "likes" their entry received.
Their victory came after the university initially removed their entry from the webpage, only to reverse its decision last week amid a hail of protest.
"It was the response from our peers that made us proud to be St. Joe's alums," MacTurk said. "If this is the company that we are in, we couldn't be prouder."
