Hi there! Welcome to the Missouri State Fair’s blog “Behind the Scenes.” This blog offers readers a “behind the scenes” look at the Missouri State Fair. We will explore the Fair’s happenings in the months leading up to it, during the festivities and after the last cow and corn dog stand have gone home. Get ready to “Come Home” to the Fair you know and love- it’s going to be an exciting summer!
Before we take an inside look at the Fair, I would first like to introduce myself. My name is Torri and I am one of four Marketing Interns at the Missouri State Fair this summer. I’ll be running “Behind the Scenes” and featuring writing from the other interns.
I am a Sedalia girl, born and raised, and I have spent every summer of my life at the Missouri State Fair. I attended State Fair Community College where I studied business and I just graduated from the University of Central Missouri in May with a bachelor’s degree in public relations. During my time at UCM, I found my home in my sorority, Sigma Sigma Sigma. I took on a handful of leadership positions and I am grateful for the growth and support I received from my sorority sisters.
The Missouri State Fair has always held a special place in my heart and I am eager to leave a mark of my own on it this summer. However, anyone who knows me knows that I am most looking forward to its 11 days of delicious food!
Now that you know a little bit about me, I will introduce you to the rest of the interns soon. Stay tuned to “Behind the Scenes” as we explore all that the Missouri State Fair has to offer. Get ready to “Come Home” to the Fair that has been serving Missourians for the last 115 years!
