Rose Princess Elizabeth Katie Woolf has lived in the Pasadena area “all 17 years,” she said. Her school, La Cañada High School, is just across the street from Pasadena’s Oak Grove Park along the Arroyo Seco.
Elizabeth especially enjoys going out with her parents. “We go to different dinners, different restaurants every Sunday night with the family. It’s a bonding experience,” she said.
Such a homely activity contrasts with her super-energetic life. She is the school’s 2014 yearbook editor, co-captain of varsity song squad, treasurer of the pep squad and a 2nd grade tutor and teacher’s assistant at La Cañada Elementary School. She has volunteered at Pasadena’s Elizabeth House and enjoys leading and motivating young adults in their athletic and educational endeavors.

Elizabeth hopes to attend University of Michigan and study business in preparation for a career in education. She lives in La Cañada Flintridge with her parents Jeff and Cathy Woolf, and has two siblings, Bradley and Grant.
Is being a Rose Princess a dream come true? “This was always my dream. I am stunned, blessed and honored,” she said.
