Recognizing the Volunteers “Behind the Crown”

Behind every talented county dairy princess, alternate princess or junior promoter is a county dairy princess committee. The volunteer dairy princess committee is essential to the success of the grassroots dairy promotion program. They plan promotions, drive county royalty to scheduled events, provide support and most importantly, assist young women in sharing the dairy story.

Since 2012, the Pennsylvania Dairy Princess and Promotion Service has recognized outstanding county dairy princess committee members who have reached at least15, 25, or 50 years of service. This year, 11 county dairy princess committee members were nominated by their county promotion committees. This year the following volunteers were recognized:
