But it all comes to an end Sunday evening when she will relinquish her title and turn the reigns of royalty over to another young woman who has excelled in the organization she represents.
The transition will not come easy for Audrionna who says she’s enjoyed every minute of going out and talking about Meigs County. A highlight of her experience came earlier this month when she spent three days at the Ohio State Fair where she participated in the Queens Pageant.
The daughter of Tom and Stacie Pullins has been active in 4-H for nine years. She was a member of the Meigs County Better Livestock 4-H Dairy Club, a four-year member of the Junior Fair Board, and a seven year member of the Meigs County Fashion Board. At Eastern High School where she will be a senior this year, she plays varsity basketball and runs varsity track.
During her reign as queen, Audrionna visited fairs in Morgan, Noble, Jackson, Athens, Mason, Gallia, Washington and Vinton Counties in Ohio and Mason County in West Virginia, in addition to attending the State Fair. She also participated in events at the Albany and Barlow Independent celebrations.
As for parades and festivities, she took part in Pomeroy’s Sternwheel Festival, Firemen, Christmas, and Meigs Alumni parades, Rutland’s July 4th parade, the Ribs Festival, and the Jackson Apple Festival.
As a special project she enlisted other members of the 2008 fair royalty for a special project of making blankets and donating them to Overbrook Nursing Center in Middleport and the Rocksprings Rehabilitation Center in Pomeroy.
