CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Nueces County Junior Livestock Show has a new queen! Gisele Delgado is a member of London ISD FFA. 

"I am so happy to be crowned queen, I am very thankful for the accomplishment and I am so lucky to be amongst such great girls while doing it," Delgado said. 

Delgado said she went into the queen's contest a little nervous but as soon as she was amongst her fellow contestants, those nerves went away.

The rest of her week will be packed full of giving out awards and showing her own animal.

While she won several UIL chess competitions, she decided to retire because she felt a different calling. 

"I am very well-vested in livestock now as well as, I just finished my senior season of varsity volleyball at London High School, so I am looking forward to tennis this upcoming season as well as major shows like San Antonio and RGBLS for major livestock shows," Delgado said. 

We send out biggest congratulations to Delgado and all of the queen contestants from the 2023 livestock show.
