The Florence Area Chamber of Commerce Rhododendron Court committee announced on Monday the 2014 Senior Court Princes and Princesses.
For the first time in its history, the court includes five princes. They are Trevor Denning, Samuel Johnson, Derek Kennedy, Jacob Kirby and Jeremiah Tupua, all seniors at Siuslaw High School.
Students were selected primarily through an application process that required brief essays titled ďWhy I Want to Be An Ambassador for the Florence Rhododendron Festival.Ē
Among the male applicants, the responding theme focused on their desire to represent the town of Florence and their school.
About 10 female high school students vied for positions on the Rhody Festival Senior Court of princesses, making the selection process a bit more challenging. After reviewing studentsí essays and following up with some interviews, the following students were named 2014 princesses: Jireh Teo, Katrina Greenlief, Sara Burns, Maygan Sturm and Sonya Lang. Four of the princesses are seniors from Siuslaw High School; Lang is a senior at Mapleton High School. For the complete article see the 02-12-2014 issue.
