Kortnie Volk was crowned Miss Sno-Eagle 2019-2020 at the November meeting of the Sno-Eagles Snowmobile Club. Kortnie is from Three Lakes and is a senior at Three Lakes High School.
She loves being active and is involved in downhill skiing, water-skiing, cross country skiing, hunting, trap shooting, running, playing basketball, and, of course, snowmobiling. Because of her love for athletics, she is involved in three different varsity sports, all while maintaining a high grade point average.
Kortnie is a member of Three Lakes High School’s Student Council, which allows her to share her leadership and communication skills by working to lead activities for the student body and organize fundraisers for families in need. She is Vice President of National Business Honor Society. Through this organization she volunteers at “Pink Week” during which various fundraisers are held. All the proceeds benefit the Pink Ribbon Riders to help those affected by breast cancer. Other leadership roles Kortnie has include being the President of her class and Downhill Ski Club, being a member of the National Honors Society, and heading up the Junior prom committee.
Snowmobiling is one of the activities she and her family enjoy doing together. The love for snowmobiling was instilled in Kortnie when she received an Arctic Cat Kitty Cat for Christmas at age three. She and her family spend most winter weekends snowmobiling. The importance of snowmobiling to the Volk family is evident as they allow snowmobile trails through their property and have done so since trails have been in existence in the Northwoods.
It’s also a family tradition to attend the World Championship Snowmobile Derby in Eagle River and some of Kortnie’s fondest memories are of watching Friday Night Thunder as a child.
Giving back to the community is a priority of Kortnie’s. She volunteers at the Three Lakes Fish and Wildlife Association’s annual basketball tournament and the annual kids free fishing day. She participates in Faith Lutheran Church’s highway clean-up program. She volunteers with youth soccer, basketball, and the Three Eagle Track Club. Kortnie says she’s looking for new ways to give back to the Northwoods and being Miss Sno-Eagle is the perfect opportunity to do just that!
As Miss Sno-Eagle, Kortnie will represent the Sno-Eagles at events throughout 2019 -2020 some of which include the World Championship Snowmobile Derby, Derby Vintage Weekend, Groom to Ride Raffle, the 4th of July Parade, and membership meetings.
