The Lompoc Vision

“Good News You Can Use.”

23

S

eventeen year old Emily Rich, is a Cabrillo High stu-

dent. Shes is involved in Associated Student Body,

the Parent-Teacher-Student Association, Drama Club

and Madrigals, among other activities. She chose to run as

a way to inspire youth in Lompoc to be more active and

involved in the community. “Also, I would like to represent

my town to show that we may be small, but we are great

and important

“It has been such an honor for our family to be able to

represent and give back to the Lompoc community through

the participation in the Flower Festival and as their 2007,

2008, 2012 and now 2019 Flower Festival Queens.

The opportunities given by our being queen have been

endless. Never did I think my wanting to run for queen

would spark such an adventure for my family and encour-

age my sisters to run. Emily was only 5 when I ran for

queen and was at all my findraisers, all my events, and even

memorized my winning speech after hearing me practice

it so much. You could say she has been doing the “Queen

Thing” for the last 13 years! My sisters and I could not be

happier for the youngest of the Rich Girls to now partake in

the wonderful tradition. We thank the Lompoc Community

and Flower Festival Association for being such a big part

of our lives!”
