As promised, I’d now like to give a brief biography of the two contenders for Egg Day Queen this year. Sophie Randall is a sophomore and an honor student. She participates in volleyball, softball, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Skills USA, and FFA. She’s proud of her support system, which consists of friends, family, and certain teachers. After graduation, she plans to attend community college, after which she will transfer to Chiropractic College.
Sydney Gilreach is a freshman who participates in fast pitch softball, volleyball, basketball, and Skills USA. In addition to several MVP awards in softball, she has won a Silver Medal in Extemporaneous Speech for Skills USA. She has tried hard to be a good influence on her brother, who she feels needed her after their father died. Upon her graduation, Sydney plans to complete her mission for her church before becoming a music teacher.
