2021 Honoree: Mr. Paul Knauls

Known as the Honorary Mayor of Northeast Portland, Paul Knauls has been a steadfast supporter of community and women. Among the several businesses he has owned in the King neighborhood, the salon bearing his wife's name - Geneva's Shear Perfection - is the most fondly remembered by members of the Rose Festival community. In 2007, Paul rode in the Centennial Grand Floral Parade as one of the Grand Marshals, and we are pleased to recognize him further as the 2021 Rose Festival Honors honoree.

Keynote Speaker presented by Oregon Health Insurance Marketplace: Dr. Alisha Moreland-Capuia

We are pleased to welcome 1998 Queen and accomplished physician Dr. Alisha Moreland-Capuia as our 2021 Rose Festival Honors Keynote Speaker. In 2016, then-Portland Mayor Charlie Hales proclaimed February 11 as Dr. Alisha Moreland-Capuia Day, highlighting many of her accomplishments in the field of psychiatric medicine, her commitment to community, and her work to simply make life better for others. Alisha will share what she “packed” for her journey from her "Ticket to Adventure" time on the 1998 Court to her position at Harvard Medical School, drawing on knowledge and inspiration from others – including Mr. Knauls - that contributed to her strength and resilience along the way.
