Barry County Fair Queen crowned
Barry County 2019 Fair Queen is Modaina Angus, and the runner-up is Emily Roe.
Modaina Angus was crowned the 2019 Barry County Fair Queen, with Emily Roe as the runner-up.
Angus, a 2019 graduate of Bellevue High School, is the daughter of Mark and Tandra Angus. Her 4-H projects have included beef, lambs and non-livestock projects. She plans to attend and play basketball at Kellogg Community College in Battle Creek for general studies then transfer to a university.
Angus said in her senior 4-H form that being in 4-H is important to her because "It has taught me hard work and responsibility as it takes both to properly care for a 4-H livestock project. It is important to me because animals are big part of my life."
Emily Roe was the first runner-up in the contest.
Contestants had to take a written test as well as take part in a personal interview.
The Barry County Fair Queen serves as a representative of the fair. She greets the public and presents awards throughout the week of fair.
