At 7:30 in the beautiful Vern Riffe Center for the Arts it's "Ladies Night!" That's the fushia and black colored theme of this years Miss Portsmouth / Scioto Valley pageant. The outgoing titleholders are Meghan Wombacker, who won the impressive $5000 Miss America Community Service Scholarship at Miss Ohio and Katie Camp, a Top 10 Semifinalist and new Miss Miami Valley! Teens Kara Beth Wagner and Kari Boles will also crown successors.
The women vying for their crowns are:
#2. Amanda Culp
Mandy is a vocalist from Ohio University. She has competed in a few locals over the past two or three years.
#3. Monica Johnson
Monica is a student at Ohio University. I believe last year at Mansfield she sang, but at a local this season she performed a flag routine.
#4. Alicia Huyghe
Alicia is a tap dancer who attends Cleveland State. She has competed diligently this season and last.
#5. Ashley Miller
This is such a common name that I can not say who it is for sure, but she may be the former Miss Ohio's Outstanding Teen.

On Facebook she lists both Ohio University and Kent State. She competed last weekend at Miss Clayland.
#7. Alyssa Hanson
Alyssa is a vocalist from Ohio State. She is looking for her third crown, having been Miss Heart of Ohio and Miss Miami Valley.
