2015 Days of 47 Royalty Announced
Royalty for 2015 Days of ’47 were crowned Saturday, April 11th, 2015.
The queen is Madeline Kay Field (photo middle), a student at Utah State University. She is the daughter of Mathew Field from Draper, Utah, and Lisa Wiebolt from Syracuse, Utah. First attendant is Christina Muhlestein (left), a student at BYU. Her parents are Brent and Elaine Muhlestein from Bountiful, Utah. Second attendant is Kaitlin Paxton (right), a student at University of Utah. She is the daughter of Bob and Michelle Paxton from Bountiful, Utah. The trio was chosen during a pageant held April 11 at the LDS Conference Center Theater. They were selected by a panel of judges based on talks centered on this year’s theme, “Pioneers – Forging a New Frontier!”. Their goals, accomplishments, poise, leadership, answers to judges’ questions, and family genealogy with pioneers who came to the Salt Lake Valley between 1847 and May 10, 1869 were other qualifications. As they travel and speak this summer, our Royalty will be an example to young women who hear their message. They will represent The Days of ’47 and International Society Daughters of Utah Pioneers well.
Numerous Days of ’47 events occur during July. Go to www.daysof47.com for dates and locations. The Days of ’47 Royalty will attend all of these activities. They are available for appearance and speaking engagements from June-August 2015. Contact their advisor Cathy Ehlert at 801-274-1224 or 801-580-8565 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule.
