The Grandview Heights High School football team, the Boosters Association and the high school athletic staff joined together to honor Miss Betty Schory (right) as homecoming queen and Miss Joan Forshee as maid of honor Nov. 6, 1936. It was the 11th anniversary of the first football game between Upper Arlington and Grandview Heights high schools. With one attendant, Betty was escorted by the senior class president. In the 1937 Highlander, she is noted as a cheerleader, GAA four-year leader winner, Highlander staff member and also part of the cast of the play Slightly Delirious. It was 1942 before students started electing 10 girls to comprise the group from which the queen was selected. The field of 10 girls was then narrowed to five, one of which was chosen for the honor of being queen with the remaining four as her court. It would be 2011 before the first king was elected.
