Fair officials are pleased to report that the newly-crowned New Mexico State Fair Queen for 2020 is Deanne Guthrie of Curry County.
Deanne Guthrie of Curry County New Mexico was named the 2020 New Mexico State Fair Queen on Saturday, September 14, during a coronation ceremony in the African American Performing Arts Center on the fairgrounds. Deanne is the daughter of Ronnie and Renee Guthrie, and currently lives in Clovis where she attends school at Clovis Community College. She is currently studying to become a paramedic, and will be completing her EMT Basic certification this year. She is also a certified phlebotomist. When she’s not in school, Deanne can be found riding on one of her six horses. She loves all things rodeo, and loves to barrel race and pole bend on one of her horses.
“I’m very excited to be able to go across the state to represent New Mexico,” said Guthrie. “It has been a dream of mine ever since I was a little girl to represent the State Fair. I’m just hoping I can fill the shoes that everyone expects me to fill!”
Deanne shares her home town with the first ever New Mexico State Fair Queen, Wilma Fulgham, who was crowned in September of 1950. Guthrie will hold the crown exactly 70 years after Fulgham. Curry County has been home to more New Mexico State Fair Queens than any other county in the state.
