This year’s Choctaw County School Beauty and Beau Review took place over two days. Both Pageants took place at the Ty Cobb Auditorium on the campus of the Choctaw County High School.
The high school pageant was Thursday, February 11 at 6:00 p.m.
The Mistress of Ceremonies was Mrs. Dianne Chancellor.
The Most Beautiful winners were Taylor Cook for Ninth through Twelfth grades and Claudia Cade for grades Seventh and Eighth. Isaiah Conerly and Cliff Hadley tied for Most Handsome.
The elementary pageant was Saturday, February 13 at 2:00 p.m.
The Mistress of Ceremonies was Mrs. Mariann Beals.
The Most Beautiful and Most Handsome were Josie Lee and Kip Lawrence for Pre-K through Kindergarten; Atleigh Hollingsworth and Tripp Thomas for First through Third grades; Emma Grace Loper and Bris Reed for Fourth through Sixth grades.
The theme of this year’s pageant was “You Are My Sunshine”, which was highlighted by decorations of sunflowers, vines, and burlap and bouquets of yellow daisies from Forget-Me-Not Florist.
Southern Belle designed T-shirts with the theme.
Mrs. Cyrena Shows and Mrs. Janet Alashti organized the events, which are the Choctaw County High School Yearbook Staff’s biggest fundraisers and help to keep the costs of yearbooks at a reasonable price each year.
Thanks goes to the many volunteers and judges who helped make this event a success again this year.
