While preparing for workshop and getting all of my paperwork together, I got to make a trip to Chattanooga on March 6th and 7th. My directors, Rodney and Bobbie, and I spent time doing my hair and shopping for the upcoming week! We reviewed paperwork and talent information and got a lot accomplished! Saturday evening, Lacey Alford, Miss Metropolitan, and I performed for a Chattanooga Cares fundraising event! It was a blast to spend time together and perform for the benefit! Chattanooga Cares is also hosting the 15th Annual Strides of March AIDS Walk on Sunday, March 28th and I'm really looking forward to participating and hopefully recruiting some friends as well! (Hint, Hint, if anyone is interested :)
**Miss Tennessee Teen Princess: Channing Simmons**
**Miss Tennessee Outstanding Teen: Maggie Belew**
They both performed beautifully and I can't wait to watch Maggie Belew twirl at America's Outstanding Teen Pageant! She will make Tennessee so proud! And Channing Simmons is the perfect successor to sweet Savannah Ivey! I can't wait to watch both of their accomplishments throughout the year!
Thank you to Emily Anne, Ellen, Ms. Tammy, Lacey, Kaley, Rodney and Bobbie for such a memorable weekend! It was a perfect end to the week and I can't wait to all be back together again!!
