Morgan Hungerford, a senior at South Kortright Central School, said she is excited for this year as dairy princess because she enjoys promoting products that the farmers of Delaware County work hard to make.

“I enjoy agriculture and the dairy industry because I enjoy educating people about what goes into their food before it gets to their tables,” she said. Hungerford, an East Meredith resident, was a dairy ambassador for four years prior to her position as alternate.

“Being an alternate helped me develop a lot of the skills that are crucial to being the dairy princess,” she said. “It will also will help me in life, such as public speaking and interviews.”

My grandparents (Kenyons) farm which is now owned by my uncle, has influenced me a lot,” said Hungerford. “Growing up around animals and the farm, teaches responsibility and hard work. Not only did my family start my love for the dairy industry, but they have supported me throughout the years at the events and places I attend.”

Hungerford added that dairy promotion is “extremely important” because many people in the public consume ice cream, yogurt, milk or cheese and really don’t know where it comes from.

“My goal is to educate as many people throughout Delaware County and the state about the industry,” she said. “I will do my best to simply make as many appearances as I can and reach as many people as I can this year.”
