Thanks to Judy (Kroeger) McKercher ’57 for providing the following: “The picture was taken in May of 1957. It originally appeared in the Lumen with a story announcing the May Crowning Ceremony for Mother Mary Day on May 26, 1957. Those pictured were members of the student council who made up the coronation court. Front row (left to right) Kathy Schlosser’60, Jean Walsh ’58 and Judy Kroeger’57. Back row (left to right) Geri Ostrander ’57 and Carol Deiss ’57. Jean’s veil in the picture is actually the back of her dress. This was not the case at the actual ceremony.
