Caitlyn Ann May is honored to represent the Floresville Peanut Festival Association and the Floresville community as Queen Tunaep 68th in the Court of America’s Majestic Beauty.

Caitlyn is the 17-year-old daughter of Leonard “Bubba” and Natalie May and the oldest sister of her siblings Tres and Emma. Caitlyn is the granddaughter of Shirley Polasek of Floresville and the late Robert Polasek, and Leonard and Katie May of Bishop. She is the great-granddaughter of Joyce Turcotte of Kingsville.

Caitlyn’s family has been part of Peanut Festival festivities for generations. In 1957, her grandmother, Shirley, served as a lady in waiting in the Court of Enchanted Stardust. Her mother Natalie was a train bearer to Queen Katherine Haverlah Kolkhorst in 1973, and was first runner-up princess in the 1986 Court of Golden Twilight Harvest. Her aunts Cindy, Theresa, and Leann participated as princesses and duchesses in the court and her brother and sister have both been members of the children’s court. Caitlyn had the honor of serving as page to Queen Ryann Rocha Fonseca in the Court of America’s Spirit. Caitlyn’s grandmother Shirley has been a member of the Peanut Festival Association for more than 30 years, serving as president and parade chairman. Her mother Natalie has been with the association for eight years, serving as Mistress of the Robes for the past four years.

Throughout her high school years at Floresville, Caitlyn has remained committed to her academics. She is in the top 10 percent of her graduating class and will graduate distinguished next June. She plans to attend Texas A&M University in College Station, where she will major in biology. Caitlyn’s extracurricular activities include being a member of the National Honor Society, the Leo Club, and Link Crew. She has participated in the Jaguar athletic program including volleyball, basketball, track, cross country, and golf. Her hobbies are snowboarding, listening to music, and playing her guitar. Caitlyn and her family are members of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church. She spends much of her time helping run the family business, the Arcadia Theatre.

Caitlyn is excited to announce that she has chosen Blake Popham to share this wonderful experience with her. She would like to thank Blake for serving as King Reboog 68th. Caitlyn would like to thank Lorraine Young and Cathy Sawers for spending countless hours creating her beautiful queen’s gown and train.

Caitlyn would also like to thank the royal and children’s courts and their parents for their time and efforts in preparing for this special event.

In addition, she would like to thank the Peanut Festival Association for giving her this honor and privilege of representing the Floresville community this year. She is very excited about the upcoming festivities in October and throughout the next year.

Caitlyn would like to extend an invitation to Floresville and the surrounding communities to come and take part in the 2012 Floresville Peanut Festival.
