She received her roses from none other than Miss Michigan, who had met with all contestants before the ceremony, and was crowned by last year's Miss Saline, Alona Frey. Selected as members of her court were Jane Ross, 17, of 10185 Maple Rd., and Mary Banks, 17, first runner-up, 105 Monroe St. " Kathleen Burkhart, 16, of 409 N. Ann Arbor St., received the coveted title of "Miss Congeniality", bestowed by her fel- Jow contestants by vote. Miss Lehtonen graduated in June, 1963, after an active high school career that included good grades, membership in the FHA and the cheerleaders' group and presidency of the Teen club.
