Alexis Newton – Fairest of the Fair
Alexis Newton was just elected Fairest of the Fair for 2016. We support the event with a $600 scholarship. Alexis is a senior at Carroll College. She is an Oakfield native. She started out with the 4H club. 4H clubs take both farm and city kids. This was Alexis second try at Fairest. After the application, they had interviews and lunch. The day ends with a formal dinner and crowning. In January, she will compete for the state title.
