Transcript below:

(Audio-Hello Mary Lou)

Four Guys and a Pitch Pipe, a Black River Falls High School Barbershop group,  entertained the crowd during last night's Miss Jackson County Queen coronation at the Milt Lunda Memorial Arena.  Current Miss Jackson County, Zayta Thundercloud presented her court and program coordinators with Native American Blankets decorated with artistic and meaningful Native American art as a good-bye gift.  Then, Thundercloud made the evening's much anticipated announcement.

Thundercloud, "Your 2013-2014 Miss Jackson County is very deserving of her title.  It's Megan Murray!"

Murray is the daughter of Paul and Michelle from Melrose.  Mikayla Simmons of Alma Center is the new First Attendant, Emily Stewart of Black River Falls received the Second Attendant title, and Samantha Pearse of Melrose was voted Miss Congeniality by her peers.  The new Miss Jackson County was very excited about her new job

Murray, "Well, I hope to learn a lot more about Jackson County as well as make new friendships and a lot of experiences."

Murray feels her personality earned her the title.

Murray, "I feel that I have a personality that I can talk to people and I'm open to anything.  So, I feel that's what got me here."

The new Miss Jackson County and her court begin work right away, today, at the Jackson County Fair. Incidentally, Danielle Castle announced, last night, she is stepping down from her program co-coordinator position to focus on her family and careers goals.  Bethany Berndt will continue as Miss Jackson County Program coordinator.
