"I am beyond honored to be chosen as the Morehead State University representative for this legendary tradition," Webb said. "I have dreamed of participating in this event since I performed during the Queen Coronation with my ballet class as a little girl."  

The Kentucky Mountain Laurel Festival began in 1931. The annual festival invites each university in the Commonwealth to send a representative. The tradition of crowning the Mountain Laurel Queen takes place on Saturday, May 28, at Pine Mountain State Resort Park.
