Jackson resident, Jackson High School alumna and Ohio State University student Elizabeth Fannin (pictured) has been very busy in recent days working at the Ohio State Fair in Columbus as a member of the Ohio State Fair Junior Fair Board. Fannin offered this report to The Telegram on her experience at the State Fair: “I’ve been working with so many great people and helping run the fair. Our biggest job so far has been working the concerts in the Celeste Center. We’re ushers for all the concerts during the fair. One day, I was a customer service associate at the Cardinal Gate, giving directions and taking pictures for families. Other than that, I’ve been announcing welcomes at livestock shows, entertainment throughout the fair, and 4-H Awards. We’ve also had the chance to sit in the Governor’s Cabinet meeting. We were paired with a cabinet member for the entirety of the meeting. I was paired with Lori Criss, the director of Mental Health and Addiction Services.” The Ohio State Fair began on July 27 and will continue through Sunday, Aug. 7. Fannin is Jackson County’s first-ever resident to be inducted into the Ohio 4-H Teen Hall of Fame and also represented the state at the National 4-H Congress in Atlanta, Ga. She is the current president of the Jackson County Fair Board and was the 2020 Jackson County Fair Queen.
