MENDOTA — A crowded field of talented young women made judging the 2012 Sweet Corn Queen pageant difficult even for pageant veteran Madeline Piller, the 2011 queen.

Before the pageant started, she wasn’t about to guess and later, when Danielle Turner was crowned, she noted it had to be a tough decision for judges Kelly Klobucher, Wendy Coffey and Robert Navarro.
Turner, daughter of Dan Turner and Sue Turner of Mendota, was surprised when her name was announced. Instead of an acceptance speech, she hastily thanked the Mendota Quarterback Club for sponsoring her.
Her surprise remained as friends, family and well-wishers hugged her and offered their congratulations.
“It was just great,” she said. “The judges were so sweet and we were working with such a great group of girls.
“It’s a huge honor — just a huge honor.”
Turner, a 2012 Mendota High School graduate, plans to attend Kishwaukee Community College in the fall to study for a career in nursing before joining the U.S. Army.

Following her active duty, she hopes to pursue a career in nursing while also teaching dance.
