CONGRATULATIONS

2017  WESTMORELAND FAIR QUEEN Raine Lookabill

Congratulations to the 2017 Westmoreland Fair Queen Raine Lookabill!!!!!

Raine is the 16-year-old daughter of Edward and Joleen Sebeck and the older sister of Tommi Page and Daisy, all of Ruffsdale PA.  Raine attends Southmoreland Senior High School where she is a junior.  At school, she is heavily involved in Reading Buddies, where she reads to children at the Primary Center, Random Acts of Kindness, The Future is Mine, Spanish Club, Quiz Team and will be leading her school’s Envirothon team and Greenhouse Project.

a nine year member of 4-H, Raine has been involved in various clubs including Salem Saddles, New Alexandria Home Ec, Westmoreland Squares, Trail Blazers, Sew Happy, and County Council.  She is the current President of Salem Saddles, Secretary of Teen Leadership Council, and Secretary of Junior Horse Show Committee.  Throughout her years in 4-H Raine has participated in many county wide, state and national events.  These include: Southwest Regional Camp, Horse Camp, Capital Days, Teen Adventure Day, Farm Show, State 4-H Horse Show, National 4-H Conference and many more.  Some of Raine’s many projects include: market hogs, sewing, baking, photography, public speaking, scrap booking, teen leadership, and horses.

In March, Raine traveled to Washington D.C. for the National 4-H conference where she worked with teens from around the country to prepare a presentation on water conservation called, “Count Every Drop”.  While in Washington D.C., Raine visited the USDA and NRC (National Resource Conservation Service) headquarters and met with many influential and important people that lead and impact our nation’s agricultural industry.  Raine hopes to someday make her way into the USDA and become an advocate for agriculture and work to represent our local farmers and farmland and ensure that they are always important and protected.  Raine also hopes to become a spokesperson for 4-H and FFA and other agricultural groups and encourage more youth to get involved.

In early 2017, Raine and a committee of dedicated Salem Saddles members organized a benefit horse show for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.  This show was successful and raised over $4,000 to fund a local child’s wish.  The horse show included a trophy drive where Raine collected 160 trophies to re-purpose and use rather than ribbons.  Raine and her family spent countless hours removing old plaques and replacing toppers on trophies to make them look good as new for the Ride For A Wish Horse Show.  Raine hopes to make the show an annual event and continue funding local children’s wishes.  This isn’t the first time Raine has worked with Make-A -Wish.  In previous years Raine worked with her club to make scrapbooks for families with Wish Kids so that their families can simply capture memories and insert pictures form their granted wishes.  Raine and the Salem Saddles club also collected monetary donations for Make-A-WIsh and held a toy drive to help stock the toy closet at the Make-A-Wish headquarters in Pittsburgh.

After high school Raine plans on attending either Penn State or the University of Wyoming to study animal science and nutrition.  Currently she is employed at Logan Family Farms where she picks and sells sweet corn and travels to farmers markets to sell beef and pork.

Outside of school and 4-H Raine enjoys archery, fishing, hunting, riding and working with her horse Cookie, traveling, photography, hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding, running, reading and working with the many animals she has at her house
