The King and Queen of the Tri-Rivers Fair have been crowned.
In a ceremony Wednesday night, 18-year-old Shaylee Arpin from the Willing Workers 4-H Club was crowned the 2015 Tri-Rivers Fair Queen, and 18-year-old Collyn Fouard from the Cardinal 4-H Club received a black cowboy hat as the 2015 Tri-Rivers Fair King.
Arpin graduated from Salina South High School this spring, and plans to attend K-State this fall. She told KSAL News that her favorite memories from 4H are two trip that she was able to take to Washington DC, one of which she had the opportunity to see the historic sights around the city.
Fouard graduated from Ell-Saline High School this spring, and plans to attend K-State in the fall. His most memorable 4-H event is also a trip to Washington DC, where he got a “fantastic opportunity to meet other 4Hers from across the country.”
