QUEEN HATTIE HENDERSON
Hattie Henderson is the 18 year old daughter of Carol and Randy Henderson of New Florence. She is a sophomore at Penn State University, with a double major in animal sciences and agribusiness management, and minors in equine science and poultry science. She is a 2012 graduate of Achievement House Charter School, where she maintained a 4.17 GPA and graduated as valedictorian. Hattie is a seven-year member of Laurel Mountain 4-H Horse and Pony club, Chestnut Ridge 4-H club, the Westmoreland Squares 4-H square dance team, and the Junior Horse Show Committee. She has held many leadership positions in her 4-H clubs, and is currently the president of Laurel Mountain 4-H Horse and Pony club.
Hattie has been showing at the Westmoreland Fair for seven years and shows horses, chickens, goats, and lambs as well as several sewing and handcraft projects. She was the 2011 Westmoreland Fair Princess and the 2012 First Runner Up. Hattie also shows at the Derry Township Agricultural Fair and the Pennsylvania Farm Show. This year, Hattie began her 4-H diamond award project called “Books for Jessica.” Jessica Rekos was six years old when she lost her life in the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy. Like Hattie was as a little girl, Jessica loved horses and read every horse book she could get her hands on. Inspired by her story, Hattie collected new and used children’s books about horses and other farm animals to donate in Jessica’s memory to Westmoreland County children’s organizations.
