Miss Beta

Miss Elizabeth Wojciechowski was selected by the Beta Club members to be Miss Beta of 1967. Miss Wojciechowski is the 17-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Wojciechowski. She is a senior and a very attractive and enjoyable person to associate with.

Elizabeth is secretary of the Beta Club and has been a member for three years.

To go along with Miss Wojciechowski’s scholastic ability, she has been an outstanding member in the Fleming-Neon Band for 10 years. Elizabeth was a mascot for three years, majorette for four years and now she is Drum Majorette.

I would like for everyone to join in congratulating Miss Elizabeth Wojciechowski with her new title as Miss Beta for 1967.
