The Fayette County Horse Committee recently announced that Lorelei King is the 2021 Fayette County Horse Queen.
According to information from the horse committee, King is the daughter of Brian and Kelly King of Washington C. H. and she will be a senior at Miami Trace High School this fall. She participates in softball, cross country, marching band, basketball, National Honor Society and FFA.
For eight years, King has been an active member of the All-N-One 4-H Club. Throughout her 4-H career she has shown horses and pigs. She has also been a Cloverbud counselor for one year, Junior Superintendent for three years, a Junior Fair Board Member for two years and has held several officers’ positions in her club.
In addition, King teaches sign language at the Greenfield Area Christian Church.
King stated during a recent interview, “During my experiences in 4-H, I have learned the Fayette County Fair is a home away from home. It’s where you go and make new friends and learn new things. My experiences have helped me to grow in knowledge and gained confidence in myself. All of my years in 4-H have helped me become the person I am today. In the past, I have always looked up to previous royalty and have admired these great leaders and amazing women. I want to be just like those women and lead by example. I hope to influence younger members and the community at large; much like my role models have done for me.”
Finally, King wished everyone good luck as they prepare for the fun and challenges of the upcoming 2021 Fayette County Fair with the theme of “Show Rings and Olympic Dreams.”
The fair runs from July 19-24.
