As a part of the 50th annual Pinewood Christian Academy (PCA) homecoming, the past queens were invited to be a part of the celebration of the crowning of the 2022 Homecoming Queen, Matti Parker.  Twenty-five of the past forty-nine queens were in attendance in what became an opportunity for them to meet and fellowship.

Sandra Bland, PCA’s 1974 Homecoming Queen and second homecoming queen for the school, said, “Returning back to Homecoming at Pinewood brought back so many memories.  I love how traditional our school is but loved seeing new ideas.  The growth of Pinewood is amazing.  Our tiny little private school has become one of the biggest in the Southeast!  I’m proud to say my children and now my grandchildren will graduate from Pinewood.”  Bland is a graduate of the Class of 1975 at PCA. 

Pinewood prides itself on tradition and to have all of these wonderful ladies in attendance was a true blessing in itself as they are part of the legacy that is Pinewood.
