Hi, my name is Chloe Keller. I am 8 years old.

In the fall, I will be in the fourth grade at Stockdale Elementary School.

I am a candidate for Little Miss Stockdale.

I am a member of St. Ann’s Catholic Church. I also belong to the Stockdale Junior FFA and the Stockdale 4-H clubs. I have been elected to the reporter position for 4-H this fall. This past year was my first year to be able to show pigs. It was just grand.

My hobbies are swimming, basketball, riding horses, and helping Grandpa with the cows. I hope to do a lot of all of these this summer.

My dad is Craig Keller. My grandparents are Gary and Jo Mills. Without their support and love, I would not be able to experience all these great things.

Hello, my name is Hunter Lee Goar. I am running for Little Mr. Stockdale.

I am the son of Ashley Mosier and Justin Goar.

I love playing with my toys, being outside, and playing with my baby sister. I love my family and friends. I am in pre-k in Stockdale Elementary School and next year I will be in kindergarten.

I would love to be your next Little Mr. Stockdale.
