Hello, I am Tiffany Ogle, your Waverly Daze princess.
Our trio has been so busy since Waverly Daze. Shadow, Margaret and I have participated in parades, coronations, dinners and carnivals nearly every weekend since July.
But our job isn't all show. We set forth this year to create a new standard for royalty with community service projects. We've enjoyed working with the Boosters for Waverly Daze, the Knights of Columbus for the church bazaar, dinners and breakfasts; the Lions for the Funkley fundraiser, and the Hubert H. Humphrey Museum. We make sure the events sign is in accord with local activities and do odds and ends around the city office.
In our free time, we have our own lives. To find me, your best bet would be on the varsity volleyball team at the high school. I am a co-captain this year. We have only a few home games remaining for you to get a glimpse of our talent. At school, I am also involved in National Honor Society, student council, letterclub, drama, speech, choir, varsity softball, basketball statistician and our class secretary. Weekends, I work at Pete's Grocery.
I have also done some community service myself. I am a substitute lector at St. Mary's Church. I donated a hand-drawn portrait of Hubert Humphrey for the new museum. I will be attending a special Olympics roller skate-a-thon, Wednesday, Oct. 22. I am also starting a program called "Tim - Teddy Bear Mission." There will be a follow-up article in a few weeks.
Our reign has already been an exciting and fulfilling experience. I appreciate the constant encouragement and enthusiasm for the Miss Waverly program from the City of Waverly and all its citizens. Even at school, we never lose sight of our city because our mayor, Charlie Bush, is the Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted High School English teacher. He is also a strong advocate of our work and always offers an encouraging word.
It's not often you have the chance to try to
repay your community for everything it's given to you, and I thank
you for allowing me this opportunity.
