PC grad presides over crowning
Megan Ifft, a graduate of Prairie Central High School and the 2018 Livingston County Fair queen, was able to help crown a new queen this week.
Ifft along with 2018 king Mark Corrigan passed on the honors to the new royal couple, Garrett Pratt of Cropsey and Laney Hunter of Streator during a ceremony held at the fairgrounds Wednesday evening.
When Ifft was in 4-H, she belonged to the Forrest Fireflies and her projects included horses, photography and vet science. The daughter of Tom and Amy Ifft is currently involved with the nursing program at University of St. Francis.
Responsibilities of the fair king and queen include handing out ribbons and trophies at the fair and riding in the Threshermen's Parade Labor Day weekend. The winners each receive a $500 scholarship for college with the runner-up receiving $250.
