“When I came back, people’s attitudes hadn’t changed at all,” said senior Pam Meinecke, the second Arkansas Junior Miss in a row produced by Fayetteville High School.
Pam showed that all it took was the “Bare Necessities” to win. She performed the song from Walt Disney’s “Jungle Book” in talent competition.
After she was crowned in Little Rock December 30, her duties as Junior Miss involved attending district pageants, making personal appearances, speaking at civic and service club meetings and working with the American Cancer Society. April 20-May 12, Pam traveled to Mobile, Alabama, for the national Junior Miss Pageant.
Nina Rolloff, senior, was named DAR Good Citizen of the local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. She was nominated by the senior girls and chosen by the faculty. Along with the honor she received a college scholarship.
Six candidates were nominated by West Campus shops for VICA Sweetheart. Kathy Peele, senior, and Anna Williams, junior, were chosen by a panel of faculty members to represent Fayetteville in state competition in March.
