Thirty-three young women from across Indiana have been selected to serve in the 2013 500 Festival Princess Program.
Among them are Lauren Hines and Marlena Mathis, both of Greenwood. Hines attends Anderson University, majoring in nursing. Mathis attends IUPUI, also majoring in nursing.
As ambassadors of the 500 Festival, the 2013 Indianapolis 500 and their hometowns, the princesses will attend and volunteer at 500 Festival events and programs throughout May. In addition, they will be involved with statewide outreach programs of their choosing.
