The Rose Festival princess from St. Mary's Academy has been active in campus ministry and public service at the downtown school for girls. 

Annette Holgado, daughter of Wally and Laura Holgado, is a senior who will attend college and intends to major in engineering and minor in business. 

Other activities at St. Mary's have included playing volleyball, leading a junior retreat, hosting prospective students, acting as school ambassador and entering the National Honor Society. 

Special interests include service projects and spending time with family.

Her favorite place in Portland is the city's bustling waterfront. 

"I love how beautiful the river is and how unique Portland is with its many bridges," Holgado says. "Walking along the pier, seeing the buildings in the background, playing in the water fountain, and even visiting the world's smallest park make each visit to the Waterfront fun and special."
