HOT SPRINGS—Teen Miss Isle of Wight County Fair Queen Jacqueleen “Jackie” Morin placed fourth in the Virginia Association of Fairs Youth Leadership Awards Competition at the Virginia Association of Fairs Annual Conference in Hot Springs.

Morin received a $1,000 scholarship for her speech “The Distinguished Dozen.”

“I was fortunate to have the opportunity to attend the competition and Jackie Morin did an outstanding job representing Isle of Wight County,” said IOW Fair Coordinator Darlene Keyt. “Volunteering opens many doors for our youth and I was pleased to see Morin’s efforts were rewarded with this very generous scholarship. This was Jackie’s second attempt competing but, it was her first win and, the very first win in this state wide competition for Isle of Wight County.”

Morin, a Smithfield High School senior, is the daughter of Judy and Mark Morin of Carrollton. She also attends the Governor’s School for Science and Technology.
