Best of Luck to the Miss Hamilton Scholarship Program!

Last night a new Butler County Outstanding Teen was crowned! I’ve not heard who won, but CLICK HERE to meet the contestants.

This Outstanding Teen program is a sister pageant to the Miss Hamilton Scholarship program and tonight the always sweet Nicole Masters will crown a new Miss Hamilton! Nicole, seen in evening gown on the left at Miss Ohio, holds an Early Education degree from Miami of Ohio, advocated Education as her pageant platform and embodies everything you would expect of an elementary teacher! A long-time pageant contestant, Nicole competed at Miss Ohio for the first time as Miss Hamilton, but unfortunately has now “aged-out.”

I really enjoyed getting to know Nicole; she is one of the most upbeat and positive people I’ve ever met. Painting a Habitat for Humanity House with her at last year's Miss Ohio Community Service day and hearing all about her haunted house is a Miss Ohio experience I’ll always remember!

She will crown one of the following women tonight at 7 p.m. in Hamilton Ohio’s Old Moose Event Center. Miss Ohio Melanie Murphy and Miss Miami Valley Sophia Davis will be on hand to help Nicole emcee and entertain. Click the link above to find more information. Best of luck to everyone!
