2020 Fair Dedication We proudly dedicate the 2020 Pontotoc County Free Fair to Wendell Wynn. Wendall has been involved in the Pontotoc County Free Fair for many years. Wendell grew up in on his family’s farm near Ada where he helped his family raise horses and cattle. Wendell met his wife Kay in high school. Kay loved to show animals, so in order to win her over, he decided to help her with her showing projects. Wendell has been apart of the livestock shows ever since. Wendell and Kay’s two children, William and Amy showed all through school. There were times during the kids showing days where Wendell would be so busy with his role as Superintendent, he would even have time to help the kids, so Kay would be sure the kid’s animals were ready for the show ring. After the kids graduated, Wendell still stayed active in the livestock shows. He served as President of the Pontotoc County Jr. Livestock Show Board for many years and held the role of Beef Superintendent for many years in both the fair and the spring show. Wendell holds a special place in his heart for the kids of Pontotoc County and especially the ones that have shown over the years. Wendell is a graduate of Byng High School. In 4
