What makes the daughter of Rick and Vickie Raible smile? “Having a good day and being with my friends and having a good time.”
Morgan Wright, daughter of Tim and Lori Wright, West Harrison, was named second runner-up.
She thought reciting her speech was difficult, but so was “wearing pantyhose.”
When the 18-year-old was asked what cartoon character she would like to be, she replied, “SpongeBob because he’s always goofy and silly and having a good time.”
Renee Brehm said being named Miss Congeniality “feels like more of an honor than being queen because the girls (competitors) see me as who I am.”
The 17-year-old daughter of Jeff and Rosa Brehm, Cedar Grove, described what success means to her. “It is not necessarily how many people know your name, but how many people you touch .... and make a difference in their lives.”
The queen and her court will reign over activities at the fair by handing out awards and making public appearances.
