Cleveland has two candidates vying to be the school’s Rose Festival princess: Claire Yeates and Emily Welch. Both presented their speeches on March 10 to the student body, then participated in the traditional tea with family and friends in the library afterward.

Students were provided a link to vote for their favorite candidate. The new princess will be crowned on March 23 during an assembly when reigning princess Zinnia Sirokman will present the winner with her crown.
