Homecoming Queen

1st Mexican American Homecoming Queen

The most symbolic achievement of Mexican Americans in high school was the election of Wilma Figueroa as queen of the 1958 Homecoming football game. It seemed a fortuitous way for Mexican Americans to start off things at the newly built Central High School. -San Angelenos, Arnoldo De Leon
