Long before it occurred to free-spirited kids to consider electing some kid named Mike for their Homecoming Queen, young people of our time took the selection of our beauties seriously. The pictures show 48 young ladies elected by the various sports teams to serve as their Queens and Princesses…beauties, all. And very nice young people, too.
A separate posting about the football queens, Carol Reeder and Susan Begley, can be found here.

Sometimes it's a little difficult to recall or tell someone when THE Sixties really began...I place it about 1965-66 with ramp up of soldiers sent to Vietnam and Sonny & Cher's "I Got You Babe" and the start of protest music. Other things changed very quickly during those few years after we left EHHS...mini-skirts and long hair, for example. Below are the 1968 & 1972 EHHS Homecoming Queen and Princesses.
