This year's Daffodil Princess selection process took place virtually.

The Eatonville High School Daffodil Princess committee selected EHS student Angelina Mireles-Mazza as the 2021 Daffodil Princess, Jan. 13.

Mireles-Mazza was selected virtually out of three candidates. The other candidates were Katherine Lewis and Sarah Piper. To be a Daffodil princess, students must be a senior with a 3.2 cumulative grade point average or higher.

Last year's Daffodil Princess Emily Frey and 2019 Princess Chloe Sawyer helped prepare the girls for the selection, and Frey crowned Mireles-Mazza in the coronation ceremony.

This year's selection was different than other years because of COVID-19. Judges interviewed the candidates virtually, and the students also gave their speeches and answered their impromptu questions virtually.

According to information provided from Daffodil coordinator Ruth Beckwith, Mireles-Mazza was involved with Drama Club and performed in plays last year. She also participated in track and field her sophomore year and has played volleyball since she was a freshman. Mireles-Mazza also enjoyed being in the band, playing at the games, and being in paradees and attending events, such as a high school reunion at the Ohop Grange and two Eatonville Elementary Booster Club events. She volunteered for the Sept. 11 Day of Service and is currently a volunteer at the Eatonville Family Agency Food Bank.

According to the information provided by Beckwith, Mireles-Mazza wants to give back to the community, experience new things and grow as a person.
