Bethany Roley is May Festival Princess
OROVILLE – This year Kylee Davis, daughter of Ray and Nina Davis, will be crowned Oroville’s May Festival Queen. She will serve with fellow OHS junior Bethany Roley, daughter of Ross and Nysa Roley as May Festival Princess.
The young ladies will serve as royalty during all the activities that surround May Festival including riding on the community float. They will also represent the community at other parades and festivals throughout the region. The two Oroville High School Juniors volunteered as the 2014 royalty, with Kylee stepping forward as queen and Bethany agreeing to be her court. While normally the royalty candidates submit their bios and thoughts on Oroville’s big festival in February, this year it is a little different and they are presented below.
Hi. My name is Kylee Davis. I am 17-years-old and I am a junior at Oroville High School. I have lived in Oroville almost my whole life. I attended Tonasket Schools until seventh grade, when I transferred to the Oroville School district. I didn’t know about May Day until I transferred schools and I
thought it was a really fun idea. Last year I was Sophomore Class Princess and I really enjoyed it, so I decided to run for May Festival Queen this year.
When chosen as your May Festival Queen I was really excited because May Day is a huge deal in our community. May Day is a weekend when everyone’s families come together to watch the parade and other festivities. Going to the parade with my family is something that I have done since I was little, and I always wanted to be up there on that beautiful float. Representing our community is an honor, I get to show how our community comes together to help do something amazing.
My hobbies are reading, playing board games, babysitting, hanging out with friends, volunteering, and I just recently have been enjoying bowling. I have four brothers and three sisters. My parents are Nina Davis and Ray Davis. I’m really happy I have my mom, dad and his wife Teresa to
support me in this exciting journey!
I am also excited to be representing Oroville as May Day Queen with Princess Bethany Roley. This is going to be a fun year, and I hope everyone is there to enjoy May Day with us this year.
My name is Bethany Roley. I am 17-years-old and a junior at Oroville High School. My parents are Ross and Neysa Roley. I have a very large family, two brothers, two sisters and also four half sisters, a step sister and step brother.
My family moved to Oroville more than 10 years ago and we have loved living here. I grew up watching the May Festival parade and wishing I was a Princess. Now my wish has come true! I am very honored to be representing the city of Oroville as your 2014 May Festival Princess.
Queen Kylee and I have a full schedule of parades and events to go to this Summer. Our purpose will be to represent our city and citizens around the state. I am looking forward to the fun times and memories we will make together. Our first parade will be the Apple Blossom parade in Wenatchee. The next weekend will be our own May Day Festival with Coronation Friday night and parade Saturday morning. We will also visit Spokane, Moses Lake, Omak and many other cities. Between parades we will be meeting with many civic organizations in town.
At school I am involved with many activities including cheerleading, FBLA (I’m heading to state this year!), year book staff, etc. I am also active with my church youth group. I work during the summer and like to babysit. When I graduate I am planning on going to school to be a radiology technician and hopes to start my own family one day.
