Senior Olivia Wolfe has been selected as Grant High School’s representative to the 2016 Rose Festival Court. The second of 16 princesses chosen, Wolfe was named in a ceremony at the school’s auditorium on Wednesday afternoon. The other students selected for Grant’s court were Claire Bacon-Brenes and Sarah Siano. Wolfe was escorted in the ceremony by Calvin Scott. Bacon Brenes was escorted by Shanti Dubey and Siano was escorted by Liam Montgomery.
“I have participated in many activities throughout my years at Grant,” said Wolfe. “I prefer to be active and have a full schedule. I’ve participated in cheer-leading, three years of varsity tennis, swim team, National Honor Society, Black Student Union, African American Science Achievement, coed soccer, the Nothing But Treble a cappella group and the Royal Blues choir.”
In her role on the court, Wolfe will be mentored by Debbie Guerra of Pacific Power. She’ll receive a $3,500 scholarship provided by The Randall Group. The Rose Festival Court is sponsored by Unitus Community Credit Union and the Queen of Rosaria will be named the morning of June 11, prior to the Spirit Mountain Casino Grand Floral Parade.
