Alderson Queen Of Lights SelectedThank to Ms. Lois McVey for helping select the Queen of Lights and her Attendants. The decision was made last year to select her majesty and court from our Alderson Elementary Fifth Grade as an Honor for the class as they get ready to transition to the middle school. The selection of Queen of Lights used to be made from the Alderson Junior High 9th grade. Once consolidation happened the process went up to the high school at East. Now, it’s back a little closer home. Although the Queen has always been an Alderson resident, it seems to mean more to the younger ladies.Pictured in the center is Grace Boettner, The Queen of Lights. Grace is the daughter of Stacey Lambert and Fritz Boettner.Left is Attendant Emily Pyles daughter of Verle and Lora Pyles. On the right is Attendant Dixie Wright, daughter of Carla and Isaiah Parker and James Wright.These young ladies are fifth graders at Alderson Elementary. They will be riding in the Annual Alderson Christmas Parade on Friday, December 1st and they will be introduced before the parade at the Historic Depot.Congratulation to The Queen of Lights and her Attendants!
