The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Princess Kayla Bowcutt is working for the fair


Kayla Bowcutt is one of two people vying for top spot in the Fair Court this year. The 18 year-old Wahkiakum High School senior decided to run when her best friend, last year's Queen Novella Hokkanen, encouraged her to give it a try.

Bowcutt moved to Skamokawa last year to live with her grandparents, Melvin and Sherry Wright, after growing up in the Portland area.

She's got a 4.0, according to her very proud grandmother, and she's been participating in all kinds of activities at WHS, including managing the volleyball team. She plans to get a degree in early childhood development after she graduates.

Bowcutt never got the opportunity to participate in 4-H activities, but for the first time she hopes to enter some of the fun jam that she and her grandma have made this year in the fair including salmonberry, blackberry and pineapple, and a graveyard mix of all the juice they had.

"It's pretty fun," Bowcutt said.

Bowcutt will hold bake sales on August 5 and 11 at the Skamokawa store to raise money for the fair. She is competing with the other member of this year's court, Jacob Hammond. The one to raise the most money will be named Fair Queen or King.

The Eagle was unable to interview Jacob in time for this week's edition; look for him in next week's paper.
