“My Name is Rachel Elliot and I am seventeen years old. I graduated in May from Jim Elliot Christian High School where played volleyball, soccer, and ran track. I was captain of the volleyball team, the Event Coordinator for my high school, and received the North Delta Conservancy Scholarship.
I will be attending Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in the fall, majoring in Agriculture and Environmental Plant Science with an emphasis in Fruit Science and a minor in Ag Business.
I am currently working at David J. Elliot and Son, my families pear packing shed, as I have done for the past 9 summers.
I have had such a great experience during my reign as Pear Fair Queen, and I cannot wait to pass down the crown to the next princess at the upcoming Pear Fair, so she may also experience the opportunity of a lifetime.”
