Clover Park and Lakes High Schools selected their 2009-10 Daffodil Princesses during two separate ceremonies. Clover Park’s Felicia Brown and Lakes’ Kelly Hewitt were crowned princesses after answering an impromptu question and presenting a speech on this year’s theme “Carousel of Spring.” The princesses are both high school seniors and are very involved in their schools and communities.
Brown (left) has a cumulative 3.72 GPA. She is a member of the National Honor Society and is an executive mentor. She is an Achiever Scholar and very active in her church. In her free time she enjoys photography and playing video games. She plans on attending Pacific Lutheran University to study psychology and eventually earn a master’s degree in marriage and family counseling.
Hewitt (right) has a cumulative 3.94 GPA. She is a three-year member of the National Honor Society and a member of the Ignite Mentoring program. She has been a varsity tennis player since her freshman year and was voted “most inspirational” and named “team captain” by her peers. Hewitt is active in the community and at her church. When she isn’t busy with school work she enjoys biking, spending time with her family and journaling. Hewitt will attend Washington State University in the fall and study computational neuroscience to become a scientist unraveling the mysteries of the brain.
Brown and Hewitt will serve as festival representatives to community organizations throughout the festival season. They will advance to compete in the Queen’s Coronation Friday, March 12, 2010, in Puyallup where they will vie for various educational scholarships and for the title “Queen of the Daffodil Festival.”
