She Was on Franklin High School's Rose Festival Court in 1954

In times past, the Rose Festival Princess selection in the high schools was an honor and a time of celebration. [Each school would have a Rose Festival court, comprised of students who were competing to become the Princess representative.]

This photo shows two of the members (including me) and their escorts from the Franklin high school Rose Festival court of 1954.

The affair was held in the bowl of Franklin high school. Court members were in gowns and escorts in white dinner jackets. At Franklin we were paraded around the bowl in new 1954 Ford convertibles.
