2022 Miss Martin County Fair Queen Summer Ernst
Meet Miss Martin County Fair 2022, Summer Ernst, our new fair ambassador! Summer is a junior at South Fork High School and is involved in the Agriculture, Avid, and SGA Leadership programs. She is also a member of FFA, and beginning her third year on the South Fork swim team. Summer has also played softball and performed as part of South Fork’s Spirit & Pride color guard team for two years.
This year through her 4-H club, the Martin Grade Rustlers, Summer showed twin goats and won Reserve Champion Senior Showman which was extremely exciting as a first time participant in the livestock program at the Martin County Fair. In addition to her scholarship award from the fair, Summer has also had the honor of receiving a scholarship from the Vibe Leadership program at Harmony Hope Stables, an amazing program that teaches leadership, barn, and equine skills. Summer plans to use these skills in becoming an Equine Specialist and helping special needs children through equine therapy. She is very passionate about giving back to her community and volunteers through her church, House of Hope, Harmony Hope Stables, and Tykes and Teen.
In her free time Summer loves being outdoors, either on the water or in the woods, and enjoys the beach with friends and traveling with her family. She credits the Miss Martin County Fair scholarship program for helping her gain confidence, interview skills, and making sweet friends. Summer is thankful for the incredible opportunity, and is so excited to represent Martin County over the next year!
