Ashley Mohn ’16, a Delaware Valley College dairy science major, was crowned as the Berks County 2014-2015 Dairy Princess in May. Mohn will lead a team including: alternate princesses Gabrielle Kurtz and Megan Notestine and Lil’ Miss Dairy Princess Alyssa Troutman.

“Receiving the title of Berks County Dairy Princess will give me the opportunity to reach ag as well as non ag-related people and share my enthusiasm for the dairy industry,” said Mohn. “I am honored to be promoting the dairy industry and sharing my passion.”

As an ambassador for the Berks County dairy industry, Mohn will educate the public about the industry and the health benefits of consuming dairy products. She will also promote the dairy industry through public speaking engagements, events and media interviews.

After she graduates, Mohn would like to work in marketing for a dairy-related company or organization. She’s interested in using her public relations skills to help promote the dairy industry.

Mohn is one of several agriculture ambassadors selected from the College. In 2011, Gabrielle Murphy ’14 was named Pennsylvania Dairy Princess. Lia Schmittel ’14, a Delaware Valley College equine science and management major, was crowned the 2014 Pennsylvania Fair Queen in January 2014. The positions help students gain real-world experience as a representative and educator for an industry.
