Carson City Frontier Days, Inc. is pleased to announce that Victoria Patin, daughter of David and Michell Patin of Carson City, has been crowned Frontier Days Queen for 2018. Victoria is a junior at Carson City-Crystal High School, where she is a devoted and repected member of the FFA. Victoria was described as outgoing, caring, compassionate, and lovely by Nancy Woodcok, the Patoral Director at her church. She also commented that Victoria is an active member of St. Mary’s Parish where she is a leader and positive role model for her peers. During her spare time, Victoria enjoys babysitting, riding horses, and visiting with her grandmother. She plans to attend college to obtain a degree in Veterinary Science and become a Veterinary Technician.
Victoria’s essay for the Frontier Days Queen Contest impressed the judges with her heartfelt, mature response. She had to respond to the following: You have been gifted a magic wand. You may use it to grant one wish. What would that wish be? Why? After you use it for your wish, the instructions say you are to gift it to another person. Who would that person be? Why? Victoria wished that others would not have to suffer the loss of a loved one. She shared a very personal experience in her essay regarding the loss of her sister, Emily, two years ago. She would then gift the wand to her father because she looks up to him and he has been very influential in her life. Other questions that Victoria had to answer provided the judges with insight into her love for volunteering, her consideration for others, and the importance of family and friends. er responses were well-written and real, coming from her heart.
Victoria will spend the busy Frontier Days weekend attending many events, where she will be spotlighted in the Grand Parade on June 2. During her reign, Victoria will be required to complete a total of 25 hours of community service, as well as attend engagements scheduled throughout the year in Carson City and the surrounding areas. She will conclude her reign next spring when she crowns the Frontier Days Queen of 2019.
Carson City Frontier Days, Inc. would like to thank Independent Bank of Carson City for sponsoring this year’s Frontier Days Queen Contest. We would also like to thank the 2017 Frontier Days Queen, Rachel Stoudt, for all of her hard work and dedication.
