Isabella Reffit, Miss River Days 2021

Hello everyone!! My name is Bella Reffit. I am the daughter of Hector and Jennifer Reffit and the younger sister to Eli Reffit and Tori May. I attend Minford High School and am a member of National Honors Society, Varsity volleyball, Varsity basketball, SOS (student support group), Spanish Club, and Bible Club. After high school, I plan to further my education in college (undecided) to earn my bachelors degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography and become a Sonographer. My favorite thing about River Days is that I have made 14 new best friends and two of them are my sister queens! I’m excited to travel to each festival while representing Portsmouth and getting know other queens as well!
