Corinne Marie Morkovsky
Corinne Marie Morkovsky is honored and excited to represent the 69th annual Floresville Peanut Festival as Queen Tunaep of the Court of Broadway Lights.
Corinne is the 17-year-old daughter of Russell and Shelley Morkovsky and the younger sister of Travis, 20, and Molly, 18. She is the granddaughter of John and Eunice Morkovsky of Victoria and Janice Pedersen of San Antonio and the late William Pedersen.
Corinne is a senior at Floresville High School and is currently ranked first in her class, an achievement she is very proud of. Corinne is a member of the National Honor Society and is the organization’s president this year. She was a member of the Floresville Tigerette Dance Team for three years and served as colonel during her junior year. Corinne is a proud member of the Floresville FFA, where she has served as secretary and vice president and participated in Milk Quality and Products judging, Agricultural Issues, highway cleanup, and the Agriculture Fair for elementary students.
Corinne is an active member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Floresville. In the past, she has been a Faith Formation assistant for the second and fourth grades and served on a team for the Teen ACTS Retreat.
Upon graduation, Corinne plans to study business at Texas A&M University in College Station and dreams of one day owning her own bridal gown store.
Corinne has many people to thank for all they have done in order to make her experience with the Peanut Festival a success. First and foremost, she would like to thank her parents for the tremendous support they have given her and will continue to give in the future. She appreciates all the support and enthusiasm her friends and family have shown and is truly grateful for them all. In addition, Corinne is grateful that her friend, Mason Ray, agreed to reign with her this year as King Reboog. She has no doubt that he will be a great king and looks forward to serving as Peanut Festival royalty with him.
Corinne would also like to thank the Peanut Festival Association and this year’s president, Michelle Tackitt, for believing in her and giving her the opportunity to represent the city of Floresville. She also owes many thanks to her talented seamstress, Marietta Matheaus, who has done an incredible job and created a dress that has exceeded all of Corinne’s expectations. She is also grateful for all the assistance Hilary and Pat Reile have provided, both as court designers and as friends of the family.
Corinne looks forward to attending all of the wonderful events at this year’s Peanut Festival. She invites everyone in the community to come out to the festivities and make this year’s festival the best one yet!
