Jeni Haler, whose mother and father and both sets of grandparents are from St. James or Watonwan County, has been selected as one of the 2014 Aquatennial Princesses.
Each year the Minneapolis Aquatennial celebrates Minnesota summer by crowning a Queen of the Lakes and two Aquatennial Princesses.
Jeni is the daughter of Connie Haasken and Rick Haler. Her grandparents are Ruth and Lawrence Haler and Darrel and Vivian Helget.
Jeni and her family live on a farm near Norwood. This fall Jeni is planning on attending the University of Minnesota and major in animal science with a pre-vet emphasis.
