Kelly Workman of New Haven has what it takes to be the 2014 Face of the New Haven Canal Days Festival!

The 18 year old New Haven High School Senior was recently selected as the winner from more than 40 submissions to be this year’s Face of the New Haven Canal Days Festival. The photograph of Workman, taken by her sister, Aubrey Dettmer, shows a smiling Workman on the merry-go-round during the 2013 New Haven Canal Days Festival.

The selection committee for the Face of the New Haven Canal Days Festival felt that Workman is a shining example of the very best and brightest that New Haven has to offer. Workman is ranked 11th in her graduating class and is very active in her school and community, participating in the following activities and athletics: the Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council, Student Council, Principal’s Cabinet, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Can-struction, National Honor Society, Key Club, Student Athletic Council, Captain of the Track Team, Captain of the Cross Country Team, Dance, plays slow-pitch summer softball, and is the class Treasurer.

Workman is one of 8 children, and has lived her entire life in downtown New Haven. Next fall, she will attend Indiana Tech studying Math Education; she will run both cross country and track for the Warriors while a student there.
