Sharon Greco —
Board Member
I am a member of Kiwanis, and have been with the Fair for ten plus years. My reason for being with the Fair is that I want the kids involved in the Fair to someday be able to come and work diligently and happily in a position like I am.

 

Anthony Merseal — Board Member
I came onto the Board in February of 2020. My position at Jefferson College has had my knowledge of the Fair close for 22 years.  After having attended the Nite at the Races event for 10 or so years, it was just a matter of time before I became more closely involved. I believe the Fair is a good way to help our youth with scholarships. Helping the students involved in the Fair is important to me, that is why I am on the Board.

 

Danielle West — Board Member
I started with the Fair in April of 2021. I am proud to represent an organization that promotes the development of art and science.
