Past Queens

In 1949, five girls ran for the first Miss Kendall County. Penny jars were placed in local businesses and each penny was a vote cast. The girls were Bonnie Lee Kemp, Barbara Massey, Joan Cunningham, Lorriane Esser and Ikey Hartz. The winner was Miss Bonnie Lee Kemp.

The second queen, Miss Lorriane Martin, was selected by a committee of Directors and their wives. This practice continued until the 1960's when it changed to a panel of judges as we do today. The queen was crowned in February at a formal dance and was given a heavy red robe, sceptor and roses.

Our Queen's Court has grown over the years adding a Duchess in 1979 and Little Miss in 2000.
