Katelyn “Katie” Nicole Smith is honored and excited to have been given the opportunity to represent the Floresville Peanut Festival Association as the First Runner-up Princess of Purple Mountains Majesty for this year’s 68th annual Peanut Festival Court of America’s Majestic Beauty.

Katie is the 17-year-old daughter of Dee and Penny Smith of Floresville. She has a younger sister, Emily, who is in the sixth grade. She is the granddaughter of Charles and Rosa Smith of Quitman, and the late Leemon and Shirley Smith, formerly of Fruitvale.

Katie is a senior at Floresville High School, where she is the Student Council president, regional president of the Business Professionals of America, and historian of the National Honor Society. She is currently ranked third in her class, and is a former three-year member of the Mighty Tiger Band, where she played flute. She loves to pursue her passion of photography, taking pictures at athletic games and for family and friends. Katie is a member of the First Baptist Church in Floresville and is an office aide at the church as part of the school’s Work-Based Learning program.

After graduation, Katie plans to attend Texas A&M University in College Station and major in biomedical sciences to pursue a career in veterinary medicine.

Katie would like to thank her seamstress, Marietta Matheaus. Katie is forever grateful for the magic she performed in transforming a colored sketch into the reality of a gorgeous dress and train. She would also like to thank the following ladies who helped bead parts of the train: Glynda Merritt, Bonna Reed, Shae Shodrock, Emily Smith, and Penny Smith. She wants to express gratitude to her prince, Colby Shodrock, and his family for all their support. She could think of no better prince or friend that she would rather have by her side during this experience. Katie and Colby have shared the dream of being in the Peanut Court together since seventh-grade Spanish class.

Katie would like to thank her family for all the support and encouragement and, most importantly, for always believing in her. And last but not least, she wants to convey her undying love to her parents, without whom none of this would be possible. “Thank you for helping me take this bite out of the pie!”
