Beauty pageants have their detractors, but local women who have just returned from the Miss Tennessee Scholarship Pageant are enthusiastic about the value they have derived from taking part.
Greeneville’s Lilly Crouch was competing as Miss Johnson City when she made her first trip to Jackson in West Tennessee last week.
When telephoned by The Greeneville Sun, she was very detailed when discussing the week of June 15-22.
“It was a great experience, and I got to make lots of new friends. Listening to Chandler Lawson (Miss Tennessee 2012) speak about the job of Miss Tennessee was inspiring.
“Competing itself was an experience all its own — being on that stage, knowing all those people were watching.”
Entirely apart from the Miss Tennessee Pageant, Crouch is a performer — a dancer.
