Cameryn Jones was selected as the 2013 Kentucky Derby Festival Queen tonight at the 55th Annual Fillies Derby Ball in the Grand Ballroom of the Galt House East.  Jones, of Goshen, KY is a senior majoring in food science at the University of Kentucky.

Members of the Derby Festival Princess Court include: Chelsea Diamond of Louisville, a junior majoring in exercise science at Transylvania; Katherine Gardner of Greenville, KY, a senior majoring in industrial & mechanical Engineering at The University of Louisville; Allison Grant of Harrodsburg, KY, a sophomore majoring in biology at the University of Louisville; and Dominique Luster of Louisville, a junior majoring in theatre at the University of Kentucky.

The members of the Royal Court have been representing the Festival at a variety of events since their selection in January, including the Poster Premiere, Spelling Bee and Macy’s Spring Fashion Show. They were selected as Royal Court members out of more than 100 young women who applied to participate in the program last fall.  If you have a Kentucky Derby event send it to me at sshanklin@whas11.com.  You can also follow me on twitter @Sherlenemediapr.
