Hi! I am Erin Dempsey, 2022 Miss Putnam County. I am the daughter of Tim and Becky Dempsey. I also have a sister Kate, and a dog, Nash. I am a lifelong resident of Putnam County, living in Hurricane. I attended West Teays Elementary, Hurricane Middle School, and this past spring, I graduated from Hurricane High School with Highest Honors.

In high school, I was the senior class president, President of the National Society, Historian of the Mu Alpha Theta, a 2-year captain of the soccer team, and a captain of the basketball team. I also was active in clubs such as DECA, LINK team, yearbook, and prom committee.

During High School, I was highly active in community service. There were many charities that I spent my time helping. As the president of the National Honor Society, I chose Putnam Shoes for Children as my charity for the year. As a partner with them, I helped raise over 1,500 pairs of socks for them to give out in both the fall and spring. I spent many hours volunteering with the Long Live Will Washburn Foundation. I would attend fundraisers for the foundation and donate my time to help them raise money. Another group that I spent over 60+ hours with during my senior year was the Hurricane Amateur Basketball League where I helped coach a 4th and 5th grade girls' team, and then was asked to continue coaching the 4th grade all-star team. This was an amazing experience for me to grow a bond with some of the younger girls in the community and help them find their love for basketball.

Outside of school, I work as a certified lifeguard at the FMC Sportsmanship club. I have been an employee there for 2 years now. I attend Ascension Catholic Church in Hurricane where I am an active member in the youth program.

I will be attending Western Kentucky University this year and studying political science to hopefully attend Law School. I am hoping to become involved on campus and join clubs to continue helping people.
