Best of Luck to Tonight’s Preliminary Pageants: Miss West Central Ohio, Miss Ohio Valley and Miss Greater Cleveland!

Ohio's preliminary season starts with a bang, with four locals in just one week! Heather Waterman received the first crown, and tonight three more women be given their rhinestone tickets to Mansfield.

Miss West Central Ohio

In Lima Jessica Barrett will crown a new
Miss West Central Ohio at 9 p.m. in the Veterans memorial Civic and Convention Center. Jessica won a Non-Finalist Talent Award at Miss Ohio. The pageant will be hosted by former Miss America, Heather French Henry, and will be broadcast live on WLIO-TV. CLICK HERE for an article about one of the contestants. I can’t find an official list of contestants, but the ladies with CMN donation pages are:

Chelsey Beer
Andrea Borkowski
Victoria Miller
Kristy Moneysmith
Shannon O'Neill
Kelly Jo Zink

Miss Ohio Valley

Miss Ohio Valley will take place just across the river in West Virginia at the Wheeling Island Gaming Resort, with a pre-show beginning at 6:30. The outgoing Miss Ohio Valley, Allison West [left] won a Swimsuit Preliminary at Miss Ohio. According to CMN pages, the following women will be competing:

Nicole Fortunato
Jessica Harr
Brandi Herceg
Ashley Pesta
Megan Presley

The above two pageants are restricted to women in certain surrounding countries and are therefore call “closed locals.” Miss Greater Cleveland, however, is “open” to all of Ohio.

Miss Greater Cleveland

Tonight at the North Royalton High School Performing Arts Center

  1. I have to say, Heather French Henry is just AMAZING! She remembered me from last year like we were old friends! I just love her! We have quite a few things in common, especially her home, Bracken County, KY, as I have relatives from there. I don't think you can find a more sincere, honest, sweet, dedicated, service oriented person than Heather. She is younger than I am and I even feel that she is a great role model to me! :)
