2014 Fairest of the Fair – Molly Jump
Hi! My name is Molly Jump and I am your 2014 Richland County Fairest of the fair. I am from Richland Center. My Parents are Jeff and Connie Jump. I am currently a senior at Ithaca high school. I participate in basketball, track, equestrian club, national honors society, and choir.
Being your fairest of the fair has always been something I have wanted to do since I was little and watched the other fairest of the fairs in parades. I always thought they were such beautiful princesses and wanted to be just like them. As I grew older, I found out what the purpose of being fairest of the fair was, and that it was to represent Richland County, along with our fair. Knowing how involved I had been with our community and 4-H I realized that being fairest of the fair was something I could succeed at!
I have been a 4-H member since I could join in 3rd grade. I have taken on many projects such as sewing, photography, dairy, rabbits, and horses. For the past three years my main focus has been showing my horse “Chief.” We have grown together over the years and have fought many battles against each other. At times I questioned if showing horses was something I wanted to devote my time to. It has taught me perseverance and patience, two very important virtues in my eyes.
After High school I plan on attending one of our State Universities. Although I am undecided as to which campus, I believe I will pursue a degree in business.
Our Richland County Fair is September 3-7th. We have many great activities going on throughout the week and you don’t want to miss it!
