Modestowicz was crowned March 7 during the annual Daffodil Festival Queen's Coronation ceremony at Tacoma Life Center.


This is the second straight year that a Puyallup School District student has been named Daffodil Festival Queen. Rogers High School 2013 graduate Kenna Erhardt, who reigned this past year, bid farewell to her title bid during the coronation ceremony.


It is also the second time in Emerald Ridge High School's 14-year history that a student has been named queen. Melanie Stambaugh was crowned queen in 2009.


Modestowicz is joined in the Daffodil Festival royal court by 24 princesses representing other Pierce County schools.


Puyallup School District princesses include Sydney Brown of Rogers High, Kimberly White of Puyallup High, and Kiasa Sims of Emerald Ridge High.
