Princess Dayna and Queen Ali

Ali Miller selected as May Festival Queen

OROVILLE – Ali Miller, the daughter of Scott and Benie Miller, was chosen as this year’s Oroville May Festival Queen at the Selection Night ceremony held at OHS on Monday, Feb. 20.

“I didn’t think I would really get it, Dayna’s more business and high heels, I’m more casual. She’s more ‘girlie-girl,’” said Miller. “I didn’t go in with the mindset that I would be selected and when I was I didn’t think I’d be all happy and giddy… but I was.”

Queen Ali and Princess Dayna Roley will represent the Oroville community during this year’s May Festival on Saturday, May 12. Miller and Roley, the daughter of Ross and Neysa Roley, will ride the float at Oroville’s annual festival, as well as at other community festivals around the region.

Miller is active in school and the community. She runs cross country, plays basketball and tennis and is a member of the O-Club. She is also a member of the Border Patrol Explorer Post 0023.
