Spencer County’s Little Mister and Miss represented the county by attending the State Fair competition August 14 for all local winners around the state. Little Miss Spencer County, Emma Coke, daughter of Beth and Anthony Coke, along with Little Mr. Spencer County, Jacob Cundiff, son of Tracy and Terry Cundiff, enjoyed a fun day filled with State Fair activities. Miss Spencer County 2008, Maria Benningfield, daughter of Phillip and Bonita Benningfield, escorted them in the event by accompanying them at rehearsals and later on stage at the pageant finals. Both Jacob and Emma are students at Taylorsville Elementary where they are second graders.

Miss Spencer County took part in State Fair Opening Ceremonies in which Governor Steve Breshear met with all of the county winners at a Governor’s Reception held in the South Hall Ballroom. Maria is a sophomore at Eastern Kentucky University majoring in Criminal Justice.
