Move over, Princess Merida. You may think you’re the summer’s sensation, but we have our own claim to princessdom here at Women’s Outdoor News. Why, our Little Gal is now a princess! In fact, she was recently crowned Princess of the Archuleta County Fair in Colorado.
Little Gal, aka Lea Leggitt, is an eighth grader at Pagosa Springs Middle School, where she was named “Outdoors Woman of the Year.” She is very proud and honored to be a representative for Archuleta County.
Little Gal enjoys being involved with the community and has been in 4-H for five years. She also plays basketball and volleyball. Outside of school, she enjoys archery and other shooting sports. She is a member of the Youth Hunters Education Challenge group in Pagosa and is a mentor and member of the National Rifle Association. Lea has a love for animals and takes care of dogs, many horses, a goat, a few ducks, a goose and an emu. In her spare time she enjoys playing at the lake.
Lea is the star of her mom’s outdoor blog here at The WON. It’s called “Mia & the Little Gal.” We believe she sets a fine example and mentors other youth to get out and appreciate the outdoors. She strives to be an outstanding representation of ethics and morals. Her aspiration is to go to college and attain a degree in wildlife biology. She hopes to make a difference in the way we approach management of the outdoors and wildlife.
Congratulations, Little Gal! You know we’re mighty proud of you!
