Logan County High School senior Presley Harris was crowned queen of the Logan County Tobacco & Heritage Festival last week in ample time to reign over the entire event. 

A softball player for the Lady Cougars, she walked away with a prize package from sponsors Trembley Pool & Spa, Gerald Printing, Salon Elle & Spa and Lost River Creamer, a beautiful tiara and sash, a dozen red roses, and—when she’s ready to go—a-$1,000.00 scholarship from the Logan County Chamber to the college of her choice.

In her court are first runner-up Madelyn Yonts, second runner-up and Miss Congeniality Olivia Sigers, and third runner-up Ali Atkinson. Joining them in the top eight were Zoe Steenbergen, Rylee Warden, Abby Hinton and Alexis Rosser.

Other pageant participants were McKenzie Kempf, Lilly Elma, Kaitlyn Miller, Morgan Parker, Monica Yates, Paige Thorpe, Autumn Taylor, Cheyenne Carter, Hannah Matthews, Riley Thompson, Xa Vaughn, Micah Page, Summer Thomas, Chelsea Sigers, Shelby Cross and Emily Holt.

Logan Chamber Executive Director Karen Logan says:

“Our 2018 Logan County Tobacco & Heritage Festival Queen’s Pageant was the largest participated in and attended we’ve had in years with 24 beautiful young ladies all competing for Queen and well over 200 in attendance to watch them take the stage!
