Tuesday, February 22, 2011

The Krewe of Blarney Kaptains Klub selected Manon Gros to be their Colleen. She will be honored, along with the Grand Marshal, at a special Celebrity Grand Toasting. She will also ride in the annual St. Patrick's Day parade on March 12.

Manon is a hard-working, determined high school freshman who hopes to pursue a career in law. She has excelled in school, and was pleased to have achieved straight A's for her first semester in high school.

Manon is active in school as class vice-president, and participates in the art club, foreign language club, and FCA. She enjoys running with the cross country team, playing soccer, participating in Quizbowl, and serving as acolyte at the St. James Episcopal church.

Manon is interested in pursuing foreign language studies, having completed one year of college-level French through an on-line course at Brigham Young University. During leisure time, she enjoys being with friends, reading, and listening to music.

Manon is the daughter of Patrice and Karen Gros.

It's also time for the final all for parade floats and walking units. More information is available at www.StPaddy.Ureeka.Org or by email to Dan@Ureeka.Org.
