Best of Luck to the Miss Northwestern Ohio Program!

Tonight at the Defiance Auditorium a new Miss Northwestern Ohio will be crowned! This pageant has a rich history, including the outgoing Miss, Alyssa Waldman, who was awarded a Non-semifinalist Talent award at Miss Ohio. She is a beautiful vocalist, well on her way back to Mansfield, having won Talent recently at Miss Miami Valley and 2nd Runner-up at Clayland. [The photo on the left was taken by Ross Clark at Miss MV/AAC/FT.] Though I have not heard for certain, Miss Northwestern Ohio almost always hosts the reigning Miss Ohio as a co-emcee. In this case, Becky is also a former Miss NWO. Best of luck to everyone at the pageant, which begins tonight at 7:30.
