Howdy! My name is Laynie Kay Parker and I am blessed to be your 2016 Larimer County Fair and Rodeo Queen. Kaitlyn and I are looking forward to traveling across Colorado promoting Larimer County and the great sport of Rodeo.
I am the 19-year-old daughter of John and Letricia Parker and call the Sweetheart City of Loveland home. I am a freshman at the University of Northern Colorado where I am pursuing a Nursing Degree and have ambitions to work in the Emergency Room. My sisters and I enjoy spending time with our American Quarter Horses, Pepsi and Duke, and helping out on our grandparent’s farm. I have been privileged to grow up with a deep appreciation for the hardworking men and women in agriculture and count my blessings to be a part of this extraordinary lifestyle. I was a 12-year member of 4-H and participated in many projects as well as being a Cloverbud leader. I credit 4-H with developing my work ethic and cannot wait to support the 4-H members throughout this next year.
Thank you to the Larimer County Fair Board and the many kind-hearted sponsors of the Larimer County Royalty Program. Without the generous support of our sponsors, we would not have the opportunities we have been afforded this year. I also would like to thank Kaitlyn and her family for always lending a helping hand and keeping the Parker family laughing. I look forward to seeing you at The Ranch in Loveland for the Larimer County Fair and Rodeo!
