Schnepf’s Reign as State Fair Queen Ends, New Journey Begins
Date posted - August 15, 2012
18-year-old Paris Schnepf’s reign as state fair queen is over but the experiences have helped ready her as she pursues her post-royalty career: college.
Schnepf will attend the University of Iowa this fall to pursue a degree in music therapy. Her decision has led to some good natured teasing in the Schnepf household as her sister, Sterling, will be a junior this year at Iowa State.
Music therapy involves the use of music to help individuals cope with special physical, emotional, cognitive or social challenges.
The Spalding Catholic High School graduate sings and plays several instruments including the piano, alto saxophone, mandolin and guitar. As Iowa State Fair Queen, Schnepf collected a $2,800 scholarship. This week, Paris helped crown the 2012 Iowa State Fair Queen, 17-year-old Abrah Meyer of Readlyn. Paris’ sister, Sterling, is the 2012 Iowa Pork Princess.
