Darcy Dianne Knight

Darcy is the 17-year-old daughter of Summer and Steven Knight of Philippi and is 5’6” tall with brown hair and brown eyes.  She is a Senior at Philip Barbour High School where she is the captain of both the tennis and the soccer team, has been the FFA Chapter reporter, and is currently the FFA Chapter president. She has maintained her grades to be on the A honor roll and has attained the FFA Greenhand Degree. She also is a member of the Philip Barbour Young Life Christian group and employed at Dianne’s Restaurant.


Darcy lists her hobbies as hiking, canoeing, playing soccer and tennis, gardening, and journaling.  Upon graduating from high school, she plans to attend a university and pursue a degree in law, while playing college-level soccer.  Darcy lists three words to describe herself as: reliable, ambitious, and energetic.  In her community, Darcy helps with local church food drives and coal miner dinners.  Her favorite thing about Barbour County is the community involvement and the natural beauty.  I love how everyone in our county loves to keep it clean, maintains and promotes our history, enjoys social small-town events, and tries to help neighbors out when possible.


When asked why she wants to be the next Miss Barbour County, Darcy states “I want to be the next Miss Barbour County because I want to continue to help Barbour County grow and get more people involved.  I would love to teach not only young boys and girls about our county and its value but also older ladies and gentlemen from here and all over. I also want to show the local residents and people from other places in West Virginia that I am passionate about Barbour County and want to show it off!”
