Hancock Middle-Senior High School senior Kendra Seger was crowned queen of the Alsatia Mummers' Parade about an hour before the event began Saturday night.

"I think it's a great honor," said Seger, after being crowned by Miss Maryland 1997, Jaime Fox, of Frederick, Md.

Seger, 16, of Hancock, gave a quiet "thank you" to everyone at the crowning in the Alsatia Club's headquarters at 141 W. Washington St.

She discovered she was the queen of this year's parade when she opened the box containing the gold pendant.

The other contestants, called princesses, found silver pendants in their boxes. All the boxes were identically wrapped.

Seger is the daughter of Annie Seger and Kevin Grimm.
