Winner of The All-State of Oklahoma Football Queen 82
I’m not sure if they do this anymore but this is if your school has a football player selected to go to All-State, their football Queen comes with them to compete with all the football Queens in the state. Kurt Gray was PHS selected to State and because I was the football queen that year I was able to represent Purcell and compete with over 110 Queens. The contest criteria consisted of three days of interviews with a panel of 7 famous Oklahomans as judges and a series of various philanthropic events. The ceremony was at halftime of the All-State Football Game and my name was announced. Honored!
