MGJ 2012

Congratulations to the new Miss Greater Jonesboro 2012, Bethany Bell!!! Also to the new MGJOT, Sierra Gorton! I know that these two girls will make a great addition to the MGJ family! I was privileged last year to crow Natalie Marcus MGJ 2011 and to crown Bethany Bell as Miss Crowley's Ridge 2011. It was wonderful watch Natalie place that crown on Bethany's beautiful head Saturday night. Both of these young women are excellent representatives in this system and I'm proud to call them friends.

Sarah Hamilton was announced as Bethany's 1st Runner-up! Sarah was my MGJ teen queen in 2010. We aren't joking when we say this is a family! Congratulations to you Sarah! I can't wait to see what's in store for you.

Also in attendance Saturday night was our wonderful Miss Arkansas, Kristen Glover! She performed an exciting new acapella tap routine that had the audience wanting to join in her rhythm. We have a fantastic representative here in Arkansas and I can't wait for the rest of America to see that on the Miss America stage!

Here are a couple of photos from the night:

The contestants for MGJ 2012!

My Diamond State Princess, Maddie, and me! She and her family are so supportive. Plus her big sis was a teen contestant!

Probably my favorite photo! My current teen and my first teen, Courtney Welsh and Sarah Hamilton. (note that they are taller than me...) 

I was fortunate to grab a photo with our Miss Arkansas, Kristen Glover! Doesn't she look fabulous?!
