Julia Springate ’14 named to Kentucky Derby Festival Royal Court
Julia Springate ’14 of Louisville was recently selected to serve as one of five “princess” ambassadors for the 2014 Kentucky Derby Festival’s Royal Court. Throughout April, the women will attend nearly 70 events over a three-week period representing the Kentucky Derby Festival. For their partnership, each will receive a $2,000 scholarship, and one princess will be crowned the Derby Festival Queen by a spin-of-the-wheel at the annual Fillies Derby Ball on April 11 at the Galt House Hotel. A senior biology major who recently studied in Glasgow, Scotland, Springate serves on the Centre Student Senate and volunteers for several organizations, including the Salvation Army and the Harvesting Hope Food Pantry.
