Five Brookings-Harbor High School seniors have been selected for the 2001 Azalea Festival Court.

The court members are Alyssa Babin, Cari Freeman, Amanda Ingram, Elaine Prevenas, and Allison Towers.

They were chosen last month by the Azalea Scholarship Pageant Board from a field of nine applicants.

After training and preparations throughout the winter months, the court will help represent and publicize the annual Azalea Festival on Memorial Day weekend. The queen of the court will be selected at a pageant a few weeks before the festival.

Through sponsorships, pageant admission fees and program advertising, the court members earn scholarship funds for their post high-school plans.

Babin is the daughter of John and Ellen Babin. She has applied to Lewis and Clark College, the University of Oregon and Stanford University, planning to major in biology.

Freeman is the daughter of Dave and Bobbi Freeman. She has also applied to Stanford and Lewis and Clark, hoping to major in psychology.

Ingram is the daughter of Judi Ingram. She plans to attend Southern Oregon University and then Oregon Health Sciences University, hoping to become a physician specializing in obstetrics.

Prevenas is the daughter of Dr. Paul and Maggie Prevenas. She has been accepted at the University of Wisconsin and plans to major in political science and pursue a career in politics.

Towers is the daughter of Brad and Marjorie Towers. She has applied to Azusa Pacific University, Sanford, Grove City College and Boise Bible College. She plans to purse a double major of computer science and Christian counseling, with a minor in communications.
