Sonora, CA — Jessica Haynie is back for another run at the Mother Lode Roundup queen title.
The Tioga High School senior entered a year ago, but it was Katie Mae Broderick who captured the crown. This year Haynie feels she´s better prepared for the competition. She practices her riding every day in addition to working on what she feels is her greatest weakness; public speaking.
The Jamestown area resident is a self-confessed “tomboy” with one brother and two sisters.
Following her graduation she´ll pack her bags and head for U.C. Davis where she will major in dramatic arts and hopefully minor in interior design. She also plans to compete on the equestrian team.
The 2008 Mother Lode Roundup Queen will be crowned Sunday evening, May 4 at the Sonora Elks Club.
