|Abingdon High School Graduate Named 2009 Miss Knox County Fair
|UPDATED 8:42 a-m 7/27/09 A contestant in previous Miss Knox County Fair Queen Pageants has come away with the big prize this year.
18-year old Lacie Courson of Abingdon is the 2009 queen, beating out eight others Sunday night for the honor. She takes over the reigns from 2008 Miss Knox County Fair Queen Kristin DeSutter.
Courson says it was definitely a shock when she heard her name called as the new queen. "Very, I couldn't stop shaking."
Courson, who graduated from Abingdon High School in May, says she's been in the last two pageants, finishing as the fourth runner-up last year. Courson says she's looking forward to the next year and the travel involved.
"Definitely going to the state fair and the state pageant and representing Knox County."
Courson's plans are to attend Monmouth College and major in middle school education.
The 2009 Junior Miss Knox County Fair Queen is 13-year old Lyric Harris of Galesburg. She takes over for Dulcie Sullivan. 7-year old Madelynn Pieper of Knoxville was crowned this year's Little Miss Knox County Fair Queen, replacing Olivia Sims.
