It looks like La Cañada High's Evanne Friedmann is going to be a busy young woman for the next three months as she reigns as the 93rd Rose Queen. How exciting for her!
Imagine having as much grace and poise as Evanne has at the age of 17. The TofR's queen selection committee must have recognized a certain something in her character that gives them the confidence to award her the crown. We can all be proud that she's one of ours.
We also like to claim the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy and Flintridge Prep students who are named to the royal court as our own, even if they live in other communities. Our thinking, of course, is they are certainly in La Cañada enough hours of the day to qualify as honorary citizens. So, in addition to cheering on Queen Evanne throughout her reign, we'll also be looking on with pride at Princesses Katie Thomson of FSHA and Jessica Montoya of Prep.
