Congratulations to the New Miss Clayland, Allie Krucek!

Tonight Kasey Wilson crowned Allie Krucek the new Miss Clayland! Allie will make her third appearance on the Miss Ohio stage next summer, having recently been the second runner-up as Miss Buckeye State. [The photo on the left is from The Times-Reporter.]

Originally from North Canton, she studies Exercise Science at the University of Toledo. In addition to the crown, Allie received a Community Service Award for her platform, Serving Children with Disabilities. For the talent portion, she performs a jazz dance; I would venture to guess it was the same as what she performed at Miss Ohio, that being “Mambo Italiano.” I am very excited for Allie, as she is one of the sweetest young women in the Miss Ohio system right now. I had no doubt she would make it back to Miss Ohio, and I’m quite sure several other local directors, mine included, are envious that Martha Campbell “got her first!”

[*Note* The photo above was NOT taken at Miss Clayland, ironically, these are the correct women standing together after Miss Buckeye State last spring. L-R: Lauren Hogan, Karissa Martin and Allie Krucek.]

I am also so proud of First Runner-up, Lauren Hogan! Like me, she is a Bowling Green State University Falcon; Lauren is studying Interpersonal Communications. She also won the Outstanding Interview Award! Lauren’s platform is Risky Business: High Risk Behaviors in Today’s Youth and she sang “I Could Have Danced All Night” from My Fair Lady.

The Second Runner-up was the beautiful Karissa Martin. She attends West Liberty State College; for her platform she advocates Skin Cancer Awareness for a Second Generation. Karissa also won the Outstanding Talent Award! I am unsure what she sang, but in pageants past she has performed “I Feel Pretty” from West Side Story.

Congratulations to all the participants! Hopefully I’ll find some photos floating around the web and share them here soon.

I apologize this post was not timely, I was busy playing, and winning :), a poker game tonight!


  • I have always loved this dress of Kasey's. Do you know the designer and where she got it?

  • Yes, it is a beautiful gown. I have no idea where she got it, and to be honest, some women don't like to share that.

    Perhaps if Renee Brown drops by, she could tell us.
