Sheena Barton Competing For 'Miss Clark County' Title
Five area young women will converge in the Clark County Middle School February 16 to compete for the Miss Clark County crown. For the first time that title may actually be won by "Miss Scotland County" as the competition has been opened to both counties in effort to expand the scholarship program for area young women.
Reining Miss Clark County, Jessica Spurgeon, the daughter of Tim and Bobbette Spurgeon, will be on hand to crown the winner. She has held the title since 2000 as the 2001 event was canceled due to a change in directorship late in the course of events.
Davin Acklie and Michelle Hess have taken over the director roles for the pageant this year and both have indicated they are very pleased with the amount of support from the communities as well as the cooperation and patience of all involved during the changes.
The decision was made in December last year to expand the program and open it to any young ladies from Scotland County who met the events guidelines.
A total of five contestants will be competing in the 2002 Miss Clark County Scholarship Pageant. Scotland County will be represented by Sheena Barton, the daughter of David and Rhonda Barton.
She will be competing against Kristin Daniel, daughter of Tony and Kimberly Daniel; Marisa Roach, daughter of Jim Roach and Joni Roach; Kala Yates, daughter of Dustin and Tammy Kirchner and Mark and Andrea Yates; and Elizabeth Davis, daughter of Darrell and Linda Davis.
"These young ladies have been working very hard in the past months preparing for the competition," Acklie said. "Please come out and support these contestants as they compete for the 2002 Miss Clark County title.
The theme for the 2002 event is "Girls Night Out".
"Come and see the girls letting their hair down and having a fun night out on the town," Acklie said. "The pageant will be a fun evening for the entire family, so watch for upcoming details in upcoming newspapers."
