As County Fairs go so do beauty pageants, and one person working tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure her girls are prepared for Judges, makeup, and talent is Shelby County Director Sara Long. Long has seen many top 15 finishes including from this year's 2020 Illinois State Fair Queen Pageant with Miss Shelby County Adilyn McCray finishing in the top 15. Long says preparation for the girls remains the same regardless of whatever age they are.
Long says that the cycle continues throughout the year and that now that the 2020 Illinois State Fair Queen Pageant is done it may seem over, but the work isn’t done just yet.
Long was appreciative of not only the work that Adilyn has put in, but also thankful for all of the support from the community as well.
