The Shenandoah Queen Designate 2012 is in town and will be here through the weekend. Her name is Jazz Dorsett, and she's the daughter of the former Dallas Cowboy, Tony Dorsett.
Jazz is really into basketball, charity, and fashion and says she's looking forward to the rest of the week's festivities. Though this isn't her first time in Virginia, she says she's looking forward to meeting the community as Shenandoah Queen.
"The area is absolutely stunning. It's something that I'm not used to," she said.
Jazz is in town from Dallas, Texas. She says there's quite a difference between here and there.
"It's a real change of pace, because we don't have this much green in Texas."
A fan of fashion, we wanted to know what she thought of the bloom's color scheme.
"Pink and green is a very interesting combo, but I think that they go really well together. They compliment each other. I have a lot of pink and green coming out of my closet," she continued.
No matter what she wears, though, she's got a strong message for young people that she learned from her family, especially growing up in the shadow of her football-star father.
"Strive to be the best, and don't reach for the stars; reach for the moon. Just go all out. That's the best you can do," she concluded.
It's that message and inspiration that organizers hope many will take from the week's festivities as they go all out themselves with the planning. The best chance to see Jazz and maybe snap a photo will be at the coronations at Handley High School at 1:30, Friday afternoon.
She also makes her signature ride on the "Trail of Pink Petals" on her gold apple throne queen's float at 1:30 PM, Saturday.
