Young queen of floyd AR Shirley Betts Old photo

Queen of Floyd School

I stumbled across this picture while looking through an album full of old pictures with most of them pictures from the Floyd AR area.  Floyd was once a thriving community, so it seems, and the school had not consolidated at the time of this picture.

The pretty girl in the picture says, "This is my second grade picture and when I was elected queen of Floyd School that year.  It was a fund raiser.  Each grade chose a representative from their class.  They stood us all across the stage and set fruit jars in front of us.  The one with the most money in the jar became queen.  That was me.  Mother made my dress from silk that Dad had sent from Japan when he was stationed there in World War II.  My crown was cardboard with gold-sparkled Christmas decoration."

She got to stay one more year in the Floyd School and then it was consolidated and she was a Searcy student.  Her name was Shirley Betts at the time and is now Shirley Betts Baugh, a much loved citizen of Searcy AR.  Thanks, Shirley, for letting me share this delightful picture.

Myrl, it was not me in the picure.  But I do remember the votes on queens when I was in grade school in Georgia.  I never had a chance because my parents had no money to vote for me.  LOL

James, I can ask.
