Lani Ogle was crowned the 2016 Missouri State Fair Queen on August 12th, 2016 in the Mattewson Exhibition Center. Lani participated in the State Fair Queen Pageant as the 2016 Jasper County Youth Fair Queen. She grew up on a family farm in Sarcoxie, a small town in southwest Missouri, and is in the 2017 graduating class at Sarcoxie High School. Lani is the daughter of Russell and Kenda Ogle of Sarcoxie, Missouri. Lani is the first contestant from her area since 1985 to be crowned Missouri State Fair Queen.

After graduating from Sarcoxie High School in May of 2017, Lani will attend Crowder College in Neosho, Missouri before later transferring to a four-year university. Lani plans to major in Animal Sciences and pursue a career in veterinary pharmaceutical sales. Agriculture has always been a part of Lani’s life, and her future career field will allow her to work closely in bettering Missouri agriculture.

In addition to being Missouri State Fair Queen, Lani is also the Area XI FFA President. Lani has been highly active in FFA throughout high school. She received her state degree at the 2016 State Convention. Lani is a 2015 and 2016 exhibitor of dairy cattle at the Missouri State Fair. She is very familiar with the State Fair’s traditions because her family has previously been frequent exhibitors at the fair. Lani also serves as the 2016 New-Mac Electric Cooperative NRECA Youth Tour Delegate. This program has allowed her to take part in a week-long trip to Washington, D.C. where she gained knowledge of the history of our nation and learned the importance of cooperatives and leadership skills.

Lani is honored to hold the Missouri State Fair Queen title. This opportunity has opened many doors for her and has allowed her to better promote the Missouri State Fair and meet countless new people. Throughout her reign as queen, Lani hopes to inspire others to aim for success and serve her state as an ambassador for agriculture. Lani looks forward to sharing her knowledge and passion for the Missouri State Fair, agriculture, and the importance of today’s youth.
