Hello Williams Lake. My name is Davana Mahon, Miss Macon Construction Ltd.
I am fortunate to be born and raised in Williams Lake and this June, I will be graduating from Williams Lake Secondary School.
I have been a member of the Rose Lake Miocene 4-H Club with this being my 10th year.
Over the years, I have participated in a variety of 4-H projects including horse, small engines and this year raising my fifth market steer.
I have also had the opportunity to hold several 4-H executive titles, and this is my second year as club president.
I also play rugby for the WLSS girls’ rugby team.
Once I finish high school this June, I plan to continue my education and I am considering business management and real-estate appraisal.
I am very excited to be running for the 2011 Stampede Queen because it has been a long-time personal goal.
Through the competition I look to gain confidence as well as to grow as an individual.
I find myself constantly learning new things through the program.
I also look forward to running alongside my fellow contestants in the journey ahead as the memories that have already been made and the new friendship continue to amaze me.
I would like to take a moment and thank all the sponsors, including my personal sponsor, Macon Construction Ltd., and the Williams Lake Stampede Queen’s Committee for making this program what it is today.
Thanks also to my family and friends for all the support and motivation along the way.
It is greatly appreciated.
