Royalty is Blooming: Meet Your 2011 Rose Court
Seven young ladies in the Pasadena area now have a reason to call themselves Princesses.
The 2011 Tournament of Roses Royal Court was announced yesterday, which was the penultimate moment in the 5-month-long process of becoming royalty for over 1,000 young women vying for the honor. The selection was made based on a long-standing tradition and criteria, including public speaking ability, poise, academic achievement, community involvement and personality.
“These seven young ladies are outstanding role models for the youth of Pasadena,” said Edward Afsharian, Chairman of the Queen and Court Committee. “They were selected from a pool of the most talented and poised in the Pasadena area. They are truly remarkable and will be wonderful ambassadors for the Tournament of Roses.”
