Kendra Hester was crowned 2014, Miss Colusa County at the 75th Annual Colusa County Fair. Hester had a busy year attending local and area events, representing Colusa County.
“It was an exciting, and very busy year,” said Hester, “It went by fast.”
Hester commented that she had a great time meeting people in a super social environment as she attended many area fairs as the visiting royalty.
“A memorable moment was when Mini Miss Colusa County and I attended Butte County Fair and I bought a Giant Turkey Leg,” said Hester, “It was something that I really didn’t want but it I wanted it.”
In addition to attending area fairs, Hester attended various community events and events hosted at the fairgrounds.
“I got to meet Governor Brown at Colusa Western Days,” said Hester, “It was so much fun walking around with the governor and his wife.”
According to Hester, the schedule of Miss Colusa County is ‘sort of like having a job’.
“You have to attend many events,” said Hester, “but I enjoyed every minute of it.”
Hester commented that being Miss Colusa County has helped her learn to open up and not be as shy.
“I never liked attention,” said Hester, “but once I learned to open up, I have had the great opportunity to meet some great people.”
Hester recently graduated from Colusa High School and planned on attending Shasta College where when will then transfer to another college and obtain a degree in clinical psychology or nutrition.
“I am going to miss dressing up, getting my hair and makeup done, and all the beautiful dresses,” said Hester, “however, I am glad that someone else will now get a chance to experience what I have.”
Hester’s advice to the incoming Miss Colusa County is to be humble.
“It is a great honor to wear the crown and sash,” said Hester, “but it comes with responsibility as you are representing our country, and you have to act appropriately.”
Hester also commented that the incoming Miss Colusa County should be prepared to take lots of pictures, and have as much fun as possible.
“It will all be over in a blink of an eye,” said Hester, “the time goes by fast.”
“I would like to thank the community of Colusa County for being very inviting and welcoming,” added Hester.<
