When?Henry County Fair?Queen Jackie Driscoll of Cambridge selected her evening gown for the 2011 Miss Illinois County Fair Pageant, she decided to accessorize with a pair of “lucky” earrings.
The earrings belong to Ashley Maxwell, who served as Henry?County?Fair Queen in 2004, the year Driscoll was named the county’s junior miss.
“(Maxwell) wore them when she won the county pageant and then wore them when she made the Top 12 at the state pageant,” said Driscoll, 20.
The earrings, which Driscoll describes as “big and blingy” iridescent stones, were lent to her for the 2010 Miss Henry County?Fair Pageant.
Driscoll won the county pageant wearing the earrings and decided to try their luck at the state event.
Saturday the earrings again proved lucky, as Driscoll was crowned the 2011 Miss Illinois County?Fair Queen.
“I do think they’re lucky,” said Driscoll. “They also matched perfectly to my dress.”
Driscoll is a 2008 graduate of Stark County High?School. She is a history major in her junior year at Monmouth College.
She is the daughter of Jamie and Gene Lang of Cambridge and Mike and Laurie Driscoll of Modesto.
Driscoll and 65 other county fair queens traveled to the Crowne Plaza in Springfield for a weekend of competition.
