Carol Glenn of Bethel High School was crowned the 1977 Daffodil Festival Queen in ceremonies held at Pacific Lutheran University on March 9, 1977. Miss Glenn, a senior, was the first top royalty selected from her school and the first African-American to receive that honor.  Miss Glenn, the daughter of retired Staff Sergeant and Mrs. Robert Glenn of Spanaway, was one of nine children. She planned to use the $1000 college scholarship awarded to the queen to further her studies at Pacific Lutheran University.
