Haley Sternitzky

Haley Sternitzky

Hello, my name is Haley Sternitzky.

I was born and raised in Marshfield Wisconsin, and received a great education in the Marshfield school district. I graduated in 2021 from the Marshfield High School.

Throughout my school years I enjoyed playing tennis, playing trumpet, and dancing. In my sophomore year, I was able to go on a band trip to New York with some of my friends. Unfortunately, the activities in my last two years of high school were very restricted due to the pandemic. However, I have been able to take other vacations with my family including a Disney cruise, visiting Disney World, and a two week family trip out west as a graduation present.

Every summer I go up to my grandparents Lakehouse and spend two weeks with my aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins.

My faith is important to me, and I enjoy going to our church youth group and summer Bible camps. I currently attend UWSP-Marshfield and enjoy every moment of it.

I am a very friendly person and like being around others. I am hard-working, honest, and like to have fun in life.

It is an honor to be chosen as the 2022 Central Wisconsin State Fair - Fairest of the Fair
