GU Junior First Runner Up In State Queen Pageant

Here in Bond County, our fair queen is Jenna Koonce, of Mulberry Grove.

But with many young people attending Greenville University, we occasionally play host to county fair queens from other communities.

That’s the case with Kylar Craig, a junior at Grenville University.

Kyler is studying Social Work at GU and is originally from Olney, IL. She was crowned the Richland County Fair Queen last summer.

The Richland County Queen told us she’s enjoyed her reign, participating in parades and fundraisers in her home county.

Kylar recently competed in the state queen pageant in Springfield and was named the first runner up.
