Best of Luck to the Miss Miami Valley / Montgomery County Pageant TONIGHT!

Ronda Morris was one of my absolute favorite local executive directors and this year she and her fantastic team will be sharing their skills and love with not just a Miss Miami Valley but also a Miss Montgomery County! The pageant takes place tonight at the Montgomery County Fair, meaning admission is cheaper and elephant ears are available! Best. Pageant. EVER!

The outgoing Miss Miami Valley, Alissa Brumbaugh, took Miss Ohio by storm this summer! Many proclaimed her a breath of fresh air and she was certainly the fresh face of the pageant. Alissa has past pageant experience in other programs, but it was still impressive that she earned a Preliminary Swimsuit award and went straight to First Runner-up at her first try for the Miss Ohio crown! Tonight she has opted to compete instead of play the role of outgoing titleholder; if she is one of the top two scores after the final ballot, she will be crowned Miss Montgomery County. Best of luck to all the contestants; they are (in no particular order):

Mahogany Fleming
Courtney Monk
Allison Vance
Danielle Hather
Abby Daniel
Cayla Hellwarth
Emily Werling
Chelsi Howman
Heather Wells
Lauren Baker
Alissa Brumbaugh
Marie Hassan
