Portland Walking Tours

Congratulations, Queen Lamarra

June 14th, 2011

Congratulations from all of us at Portland Walking Tours to the new Rosaria, Queen Lamarra Haynes of Franklin High School.

Queen Lamarra was crowned Saturday morning and debuted in the Grand Floral Parade later in the day to the cheers of thousands of proud Portlanders. She succeeds Queen Victoria Dinu of Grant High.

Lamarra, a black belt in the martial art of Bujutsu and a National Honor Society member, is the sixth Franklin High ambassador to be crowned queen.

Visitors to the Rose Garden this summer will see Queen Victoria’s plaque moved to the Queen’s Walk proper, while Queen Lamarra’s plaque will replace Victoria’s in its place of honor overlooking the city.

All hail the new Queen!
