"OUR MISS WRONE"
In 1959, several committee meetings were held to design the WRONE certificate. All agreed that it should represent all six New England states. It was decided that the Acorn, Pine Cone and Winter Sports were New England: and so the certificate was designed. MISS WRONE is in the center, with her ACORN head, as there are so many oak trees in New England. Each line of the certificate carries the call letters of the station you have worked to earn it, emphasized by the PINE CONE. MISS WRONE is ice skating, a very common winter sport in New England. The colors of green, brown and gold are used so that they balance out the certificate.
