This crown was given to one female student from the Senior Class at the annual May Queen Crowning Ceremony. Their names have been inscribed on the inside of the crown. This formal ceremony was held on May 1st, which is the Feast Day of St. Joseph. Complete with debutante-like ballgowns and large floral bouquets, similar events at other universities were the social event of the year. However, Fontbonne’s celebration was much more religious because of its connection to Mary, St. Joseph, and the CSJs.
