2021 Carson City Frontier Days Queen Kiara Keyes

 mg 2320
Carson City Frontier Days, Inc. is pleased to announce that Kiara Keyes, daughter of Gary and Nicole Keyes of Sumner, has been crowned Frontier Days Queen for 2021. Kiara is a senior at Carson City-Crystal High School, where she is a member of the Cheerleading Team, where she has earned a varsity letter, and the Writing Team. She was described as a vibrant, intelligent, and dedicated young woman by Erin Verwys, a teacher at CC-C Schools. Ms. Verwys also commented that Kiara puts 100% of her effort into everything she does and that her positive attitude, kindness, and drive make her a joy to have in class. Jason Jakubowski, the Criminal Justice Instructor at Montcalm Area Career Center, describes Kiara as trustworthy and compassionate. Mr. Jakubowski shared that she has a great work ethic and demonstrates high integrity. She has volunteered twice for Special Olympics and for Feeding America. During her spare time, Kiara enjoys drawing, singing, and musical theatre. She plans to attend Central Michigan University to major in psychology. Kiara has hopes to be a probation officer.
Kiara has an interesting connection to Carson City Frontier Days.  In 2011, Kiara was crowned the first Frontier Days Princess. She is also the latest member of royalty in her family. Her mom, Nicole (Pritchard) Keyes, was Frontier Days Queen in 1992. Her aunt, Melissa (Pritchard) Mikek, was Frontier Days Queen in 1987.
Kiara will spend the busy Frontier Days weekend attending many events. During her reign, Kiara 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 2021.
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 2019 Frontier Days Queen, Liberty Devereaux, for all of her hard work and dedication.
