Mt. Spokane is proud to continue its tradition of choosing an outstanding young woman from the senior class to represent our community with the Spokane Lilac Festival Association Royal Court.
Lauren Ballantyne is the 2021 Wildcat Lilac Princess nominee. Lauren is an honors student and standout leader on our state-champion softball teams both slow and fastpitch. Additionally, she serves the broader community as a volunteer with Rising Strong Spokane as well as at Rockwood Retirement Community.
Personally, Lauren loves this opportunity to serve as the Wildcat Lilac Princess as it deepens her connection to her mother who passed away last year. Her mother had also participated in service-based community pageants as a teen.
The Lilac Festival’s mission to honor the military rings even truer for Lauren as her older sister is currently deployed with the US Navy. Lauren truly represents Mt. Spokane with “Dignity, Class, and Respect.” We all wish her the best of luck in the upcoming February 20th Royal Court selection interview.
