Princess Emma Drivdahl

Emma Drivdahl is the 18-year-old daughter of Aaron and Lynn Drivdahl. She has two older brothers, Peter and Joshua Drivdahl. Emma graduated in June 2017 from Walla Walla High School where she was an active member in Blue Devil Strong, the Link Crew and competed in tractor driving, sales and service, livestock judging, Hall of Chapters and extemporaneous speaking teams for FFA qualifying for districts and state. Outside of school, Emma is a member of the Milton Freewater Pioneer Posse, attends Walla Walla Cowboy Church and coached youth soccer for Walla Walla Parks and Recreation. She has been a member of the Valley Chapel Boots and Jeans 4-H club. She is currently the queen for the Milton Freewater Pioneer Posse Royalty Court. Since 2009 Emma has been a participant at the Walla Walla Fair and Frontier Days in both 4-H and FFA in several different divisions: sewing, modeling, baked goods, showmanship and confirmation for lambs, swine, and steers. In 2016 she started carrying sponsor flags for the Walla Walla Fair & Frontier Days rodeo. In her spare time, she enjoys time spent on her family’s farm/ranch helping to work stock, laughing and enjoying her numerous cousins and grandparents. Her parents have taught her that sometimes you can learn more while in the seat of your saddle with your 83-year-old grandpa than you can learn in the confines of four walls. Emma played soccer for several years and traveled with a Walla Walla Youth Soccer team while playing in the Hispanic league as well. She has participated in barrel racing and pole bending at the Pioneer Posse since she was 8 years old. One of her greatest accomplishments, she feels, is her horse. Emma bought her on her own with very little training and now she uses her horse to barrel race, stake race, pole bend, chase cows, carry sponsor flags, participate in run-ins and has been in numerous parades. She is very proud of her 8-year-old quarter horse Dolly, who Emma will use as her primary court horse. Emma plans to attend Walla Walla Community College for two years and then continue her education at the University of Wyoming to complete her degree in agricultural education. She would love to return to the Walla Walla Valley to be a high school Ag teacher when she completes her education.
