Kylie is the daughter of Hayley Blevins and the
granddaughter of Ed and Natalie Blevins of Abingdon. Kylie is a 4
grader at Abingdon Elementary School. She is very involved in many community
service projects and is a member of Washington County 4-H where she is involved
in projects such as the country ham project. She is also a member of the Wythe
County Livestock Club where she is actively involved in livestock judging and
stockmen’s. Kylie competitively shows market lambs and commercial ewe
lambs on a state and national level. This has given her the opportunity to meet
people all across the United States. One of the biggest accomplishments
for Kylie thus far was at State Fair of Virginia in 2019 when she exhibited the
Grand Champion Market Lamb and won Junior Showmanship at nine years old.
This was her first state fair. In 2020, Kylie was awarded Premier
Exhibitor in the Junior Sheep Show at The State Fair of Virginia, another huge
accomplishment for her. When Kylie is not working with her livestock and other
4-H projects, she enjoys playing Upward Bound Basketball and going to the gym.
She is hopeful that this fall, basketball will resume and the pandemic will
end. Kylie is very grateful and would like to sincerely thank the State Fair of
Virginia for awarding her the scholarship.
