Princess Kay hails from Norwood Young America
FALCON HEIGHTS — Jeni Haler, a 19-year-old University of Minnesota student from Norwood Young America, was named the 61st Princess Kay of the Milky Way Wednesday at the Minnesota State Fair.
Haler, who double majors in animal science and Spanish/Portuguese studies at the Twin Cities campus, will be the official ambassador for the state’s more than 3,600 dairy farm families.
Haler, the daughter of Rick Haler and Connie Helget Haasken, will sit in a rotating cooler to have her likeness carved into a 90-pound block of butter today.
The outgoing Princess Kay is MarJenna McWilliam of Winger.
