Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - This weekend is a trip down memory lane for one South Fargo woman.

It was back in 1947 that Mardy McMorrow was NDSU Homecoming Queen. She is being honored Friday as part of the university's homecoming celebrations.

Mardy was one of the few ever to be chosen queen without a sorority affiliation.

66 years ago, she and her court rode a convertible in the parade and wore fur coats furnished by a downtown business.

Mardy was set to wear a Queen's Royal Sash in the parade Friday night until it was canceled.
