Koontz in Cotton Palace royal court
WACO -- Shell Munro Koontz, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bart Conoly Koontz of San Antonio and the granddaughter of Dan Bartlett Conoly Jr. of Floresville, is a member of the Royal Court of Waco’s Cotton Palace Pageant. She participated in the annual pageant April 29 on the campus of Baylor University.
Shell attends Saint Mary’s Hall in San Antonio, where she is a member of Interact Club, Spanish Club, Environmental Club, and Students Against Destructive Decisions. She participates in tennis and enjoys photography, painting, and yoga. Miss Koontz is a Junior Symphony Belle. She volunteers with Family Services, Graffiti Wipeout, and Toys for Tots. She is a member of Christ Episcopal Church. Shell will attend the University of Alabama, the University of Mississippi, or Texas Christian University in the fall.
The Texas Cotton Palace originally began in the 1890s when Waco became known as an inland cotton center. To honor the industry that put Waco on the map, Waco residents established the Texas Cotton Palace Exposition.
