No Longer Taking for Granted

Guest blogger Vannika Rice is the 2019-2020 Pennsylvania State Alternate Dairy Princess

Ooh, I smell something delicious! It is the cheese platter for our hors d’oeuvres, the cream cheese mashed potatoes and the whipped cream on the pumpkin pie. Hello there and happy Thanksgiving! Won’t you join me and take a seat? But, I forgot to introduce myself, I am Vannika Rice, the 2019-2020 Pennsylvania State Alternate Dairy Princess.

New Year, New Ideas!

Guest blogger, Kara Shultz, is the 2018-2019 Pennsylvania Alternate Dairy Princess

New year new me! That’s what millions of people say each and every January, but most of these “new me’s” are things like eating healthier, being kinder, visiting family and friends more often. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with those goals but what about some goals that could make an impact on not only you, your family, your community, but the whole entire world? 

Walk a Mile in My Work Boots

Guest blogger, Gabrielle Swavely is the 2018-2019 Centre County Dairy Princess

There’s a pair of old Carolina work boots that sat in the back of my mom’s closet for 27 years. They were retired in 1991, but still full of life. It was only a matter of time until my mom would clean out her closet and throw those old boots away, having no use for them anymore, until I came along. My mom was raised on a family farm but when my great grandparents, my mom’s grandparents, passed away, the Corl Farm was sold to a local Amish family and my mom hung up her boots for good.
