Villa May Queens can be traced back all the way to back to 1935, making the May Crowning a treasured tradition for VMA students. This year’s May Crowning took place on May 30 in the auditorium.
Throughout the years, VMA has honored Mary in recognizing students who exemplify her spirit of courage, inspiration, service and dedication to the development of their unique gifts.
Family and friends, faculty and administration join together in celebrating the achievements of VMA students. They also join together with Mary, who walked new paths with grace and determination, bringing life to the world, and recognized the students who do the same.
When the senior class selects their May queen and the court, they do so on the individual character and moral integrity of their classmates and their commitment to the faith community of Villa.
All members of the senior class are eligible to be selected. A first ballot by the senior class narrows the list. Faculty and seniors ballot again. The May Queen and court are the four highest votes.
Prior to the ceremony, the main hallway are dark and Villa students line the halls with candles. Students then walk through the lit tunnel of students with their own candles prior to entering the auditorium for the celebration.
