Being Miss Maumee Valley

Best of Luck to the Miss Miami Valley Scholarship Program!

Tonight at the Montgomery County fairgrounds in Dayton a new Miss Miami Valley will be crowned! This program has a special place in my heart, as I am a former Miss Miami Valley and director Ronda Morris is one of the sweetest people I have ever had the joy of working with.

Despite the unique circumstance of being in an entertainment tent at a county fair, Ronda and her crew always do a great job. Clearly, since the outgoing Miss Miami Valley, Melanie Murphy, was crowned Miss Ohio in July! I believe Melanie was the first of Ronda’s contestants to accomplish that. [Above left, Melanie and I after she won this title last year.]

I cannot wait to see Melanie and all the contestants! The rumor mills are rolling with possible contestants for this pageant, but I can confirm with certainty that the following women are vying for Melanie’s local crown: Lauren Hogan, Nancianne Strosnider, Ashley Hartman, Amy Allen, Sophia Davis and Mellissa Marksberry.

Best of luck to all the contestants!

The pageant begins at 7 p.m. This one’s a bargain, only $4 gets you into the fair and the pageant. I’m headed south right now to do some Miss Ohio USA gown shopping prior to the pageant, so cross your fingers for me as well as your favorite contestant!
