PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Royal Rosarians continued a long-time tradition Friday, bestowing honorary knighthood on local dignitaries, including FOX 12's own Shauna Parsons.

The Royal Rosarians have been conducting the knighting ceremony for 101 years.

Parsons was joined by Oregon native and astronaut Stan Love, plus Olympic gold medalist Mariel Zagunas.

"Shauna is extraordinarily worthy and Shauna has been a big help to the Rosarians," Royal Rosarian Duke of the Realm Peter Glazer said. "She participates in our Newsmakers of the Year event, which is an annual event honoring heroes and heroines in the community. And then also she was a big supporter of our centennial celebration last year."

Parsons joins a list of other honorary knights and dames, including Betty White, Jimmy Stewart, Orville Redenbacher and even FOX 12's Wayne Garcia.
