A 20-year-old college student from Polk County has been crowned the 60th Princess Kay of the Milky Way. MarJenna McWilliam of Winger will serve as the official goodwill ambassador for nearly 4,000 Minnesota dairy farmers for the next year. Her first official duty as Princess Kay was to have her likeness sculpted in a 90 pound block of butter.
