Junior Abigail Reyes Santiago has been selected as Madison High School’s representative to the 2016 Rose Festival Court. The eleventh of 16 princesses to be selected, Santiago was named in a ceremony at the school on Tuesday afternoon.
The other students selected for Madison’s court were Angelique Duckworth and Samantha Lonie.
Santaiago hopes to earn a degree form Portland state University and pursue a career as a judge.
“I look forward to exploring many Rose Festival events this year, as I have not had the opportunity to attend them in the past,” she said.
Santiago will receive a $3,500 scholarship from The Randall Group and will be mentored by Gayle Evans of Unitus Community Credit Union. The Rose Festival Court is sponsored by Unitus and the Queen of Rosaria will be named the morning of June 11, prior to the Spirit Mountain Casino Grand Floral Parade.
