NC Watermelon Queen Haylee Davis

Meet the current NC Watermelon Queen

2024 North Carolina Watermelon Queen
Miss Haylee Davis was crowned as the 2024 North Carolina Watermelon Queen during the 41st Annual North Carolina Watermelon Association's Convention held March 1-2, 2024 in Wrightsville Beach, NC.

Haylee is the 21 year old daughter of Stephanie Davis and Adam Garner of Robbins, North Carolina. She is a student at North Carolina State University, where she is pursuing a B.S. in Agriculture Education with a horticulture concentration. She is a North Carolina Teaching Fellow and President of the NCSU FFA Alumni and Supporters Chapter. Haylee served as the 2021-22 North Carolina FFA State Vice President and the 2022 National Association of Agriculture Educators, National Teach Ag Ambassador.

After graduating, Haylee hopes to pursue a career teaching agriculture in a North Carolina high school, preferably teaching her favorite subject horticulture. She also wants to operate a small farm with cut flowers, fruits, vegetables, eggs and dairy products.

When asked, why she would like to be selected as the Public Relations Representative for the North Carolina Watermelon Association? Haylee replied, "Although I do not come from a traditional agriculture background, I have had countless opportunities throughout my young adulthood to learn more about the industry. Through these experiences, I have developed an interest in specific pathways of agriculture including horticulture and agricultural advocacy. As the North Carolina Watermelon Queen, I will use my platform, knowledge, and communication skills to promote North Carolina Watermelon farmers and agriculture to the general public. It would also be grate to serve as an example to young women who may not come from a farm or a typical agriculture background, to show them you can do whatever you put your mind to as long as you are willing to learn and apply your knowledge in a way that uplifts your passion.

As North Carolina Watermelon Queen, you will find Haylee promoting the North Carolina watermelons all across the state and nation. She will hold the state title for one year and represent the North Carolina Watermelon Association at the 2025 National Watermelon Association Convention in Austin, Texas.
