SRU Good News for Sept. 2, 2009
SRU education major is also queen of the fair
In addition to studying as a special education and elementary education major, Slippery Rock University sophomore Tiffany Thayer from Linesville, will be spending the next year making appearances at schools, churches and business promoting the Crawford County Fair.
Thayer is this year's fair queen and the subject of a recent Meadville Tribune feature story.
As part of her duties, Thayer toured the recent Crawford County Fair visiting shows, auctions and exhibits. She also helped distribute prize ribbons as part of her duties.
"I've done a lot of things. The fair's an awesome place to be," Thayer told the newspaper. She said she was confident she could balance her college academic responsibilities with her queen duties during the coming year.
During her reign, she will promote the fair and its many 4-H programs. The annual event is the state's largest agricultural fair. Thayer also represented the Crawford County Fair at the Pennsylvania State Fair Convention in Hershey last January.
Long a fair enthusiast, Thayer remembered her family trip at age 8 to the fair's demolition derby as part of her interview.
Thayer is also a member of Bridle Benders 4-H Club.
