"...I have been going to Freeman for eleven years and I am so grateful that I go to the most caring, personable, and special school. The Freeman School District has helped me grow so much, not only as a student but as a person... I'm involved in many school activities as well as social organizations. I am hardworking, reliable, and most of all, I love people... I think that the fair is an important tradition that should be kept to show the talents and achievements of our rural community."
"Growing up in this community and having a long family history in the Rockford area, I understand our community's culture and farming base. I recognize the role that the S.E. Spokane County Fair plays in our community and how this small three day event impacts the people and businesses in our area.Having a long-standing relationship with the fair and those involved has given me a good understanding of the needs of the fair and how this fair affects our community."
