Fair Queen Biographies

Alana King: Alana is the 17-year-old daughter of Annette Montgomery and Larry Miller. She currently attends LHS where she will be a senior this fall. She is the Student Body Vice President and a member of the National Honor Society. Alana enjoys being apart of The Liberal Black History Committee. Alana states, “I would like to be Fair Queen because growing up I would see the Fair Queens and I thought it would be cool and an amazing fun experience. I have been in the pageant world for a while, and I enjoy it. I also enjoy being able to prove the typical beauty standards wrong whether it is about size, height, or face. I also am very outgoing and I would like to own my own business one day. Being involved in my school and my community is something that I will forever want to do, at least while I can.”

Mckenna Alexander: Mckenna is the 15-year-old daughter of Jessica McClellan. She currently attends LHS where she will be a sophomore this fall. Mckenna is involved in the softball and volleyball programs at the High School. When she is out of school, she works at the Baker Arts Center. During her time at Baker Arts, she provides child care along with putting together the children’s camp programs. Mckenna states, “I believe that I should be Five State Fair Queen because this is an opportunity for me to help put an impact on Liberal, Ks, as well as making it a better town. I envision my younger community (the younger generation) to grow more independent with the help of Boy Scotts and Girl Scotts. My vision is also to extend that to any other children to learn self sufficiency within themselves. This pageant will open windows of opportunities to help me further my education. I have set athletic goals for myself in order to achieve my accomplishments. My present goal for this upcoming month is to achieve the award of Five State Fair Queen.”

Ashlynn Wagenseller: Ashlynn is the 17 year – old daughter of Jared Wagenseller and Amber Wagenseller. She currently attends LHS where she will be a senior this fall. Ashlynn states, “I want to be Fair Queen because it is another opportunity to be involved in my community. I was born and raised in Liberal, Ks. It has always been a family tradition going to the fair. I would like to become more involved in the fair. I enjoy participating in other community events, including putting my truck into the car show, becoming CPR certified, and lifeguard certified. I also enjoy riding horses and being outdoors. I am currently learning how to take care of horses and training them. Life is great when you are outdoors doing what you love to do.”

Mykenzie Kolb: Mykenzie is the 15 year – old daughter of Shawn and Amanda Kolb. She currently attends Tyrone High School where she will be a sophomore this fall. She is a member of the Ornery Otters 4 – H Club and has been for the past four years. She currently serves as the club secretary. Mykenzie states, “I love being involved in my community and found a passion working as Dorothy Gale at Dorothy’s House and Coronado Museum. Growing up I always looked up to the Dorothy’s at public events, and now that I served as one for a year, I see other girls looking up to me. That is why I would love to serve as your 2022 Five State Fair Queen. I would love to serve as a positive role model for girls in our local communities and encourage youth to become more involved with 4 – H and Five State Fair.”
