Whether called Queens, Ambassadors, or Miss Cheese Days – and whether selected by popular ballot or based on community service, these young ladies (and one young man) provided a “face” for the festivals throughout the years. Initially their role was relegated to “dignitary for the day” but as time went on, these ambassadors became actively engaged in marketing and promoting the cheese industry along with the festival itself.
