Brockway, PA – Congratulations to the new Queen! The Brockway Fourth of July Committee proudly presents the 55th Annual Miss Brockway Fourth of July Queen…. Madelyn Rose Newcome!
Madelyn was crowned Friday at Taylor Memorial Park in Brockway, kicking off the 55th Annual Brockway Old-Fashioned Fourth of July festivities.
Lydia Holt, a past Miss Brockway, did the honors of crowning since the 2020 festivities were canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Newcome is a 2021 graduate of Brockway Area High School and will attend Clarion University to seek a degree in early education/special education. She is the 18 year old daughter of Roy and Melissa Newcome of Brockway.
“Ever since I was a little girl, I remember walking around the Celebration of the 4th and seeing the queen talking with everyone. She made everyone light up with a smile and made their day a bit brighter. I knew then that someday I wanted that to be me,” said Newcome. “I am beyond excited that the Celebration of the 4th is in motion this year! With the cancellation of last year’s Celebration, being able to be the Queen this year is the greatest honor and I couldn’t be happier to see everyone at the Celebration.”
Aaron Gankosky, a senior at DuBois Central Catholic and the son of Jeffrey and Irene Gankosky, escorted Newcome.
The Brockway Princess is Ariana Carlini, daughter of Michael Carlini and Kris Kitko Carlini, of Brockway.
