Carson City Frontier Days, Inc. is pleased to announce that Liberty Devereaux, daughter of Darrell and Heather Devereaux of Crystal, has been crowned Frontier Days Queen for 2019. Liberty is a junior at Carson City-Crystal High School, where she is a member of the Leadership Team, the National Honor Society, the Montcalm County Youth Prevention Collaborative, and the Softball team. Liberty was described as hard-working, conscientious, respectful, positive, and dedicated by Shelly LaVictor, a teacher and coach at CC-C Schools. Mrs. LaVictor also commented that Liberty has a heart of gold and has made her way through high school with dignity and honor, both to her school and herself. Liberty has volunteered at a homeless shelter in Grand Rapids and at the Alpha Family Center in Greenville as part of church activities. She also tutors and mentors younger students through a school program. During her spare time, Liberty enjoys kayaking, swimming, playing softball, and spending time with family, friends, and her dogs. She plans to attend college to study law and enjoy a career as an attorney.
As part of the Frontier Days Queen Contest, Liberty was required to answer the following essay question: How do you think the town you've grown up in has influenced the person you are? Liberty wrote about how the kindness of others in her community has taught her to be kind as well. She also talked about being able to enjoy the small things and seek the good. Other questions that Liberty had to answer provided the judges with insight into her love for her family, the joy of being a big sister, and the importance of volunteering in your community.
Liberty will spend the busy Frontier Days weekend attending many events, where she will be spotlighted in the Grand Parade on June 1. During her reign, Liberty 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 2020.
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 2018 Frontier Days Queen VIctoria Patin for all of her hard work and dedication.
