The evening of July 22 at the Ted Mann Concert Hall on the University of Minnesota’s West Bank, former Cambridge Ambassador Cayla Yund was selected as one of two Minneapolis Aquatennial princesses.
Yund is joined in the royal court by Aquatennial Queen of the Lakes Amanda Bertrand of Montevideo and Princess Stephani Reding of Maple Grove.
Yund will attend Northwestern College in St. Paul this fall and works as an Assistant Dance Instructor at Just For Kix, a studio she has danced at for the past eight years. Yund was heavily involved with Cambridge-Isanti’s Model United Nations debate team and spent three years on the Varsity tennis team. A member of Christian youth group, “Rely on Christ,” Yund volunteers her time with Friend 2 Friend Mobile Ministries delivering clothing to families across Minnesota. Yund plans to pursue a double-major in public relations and intercultural studies.
The 2012 Aquatennial Queen of the Lakes and Aquatennial Princesses will travel around the state, nation and world as ambassadors for the City of Minneapolis and the Minneapolis Aquatennial.
