I am Katelyn Mernack, I'm currently working towards a dental hygiene degree and associate of arts at Rock Valley College. My first year of college I attended Lindenwood university, and was apart of the cheerleading team. One of my favorite memories is competing at nationals in Daytona Florida. I was the 2012 1st. Runner up Junior Miss Ogle County, 2013 Junior Miss Ogle County, and 2016 1st. Runner up Miss Ogle County. I am very excited to now represent as the new 2017 Miss Ogle County. Fair week held experiences i will never forget, I am so thankful to everyone who made it possible.
