The 15 contestants vying for the title of Miss Tech 2012 will receive a modelling lesson with Joy Murphy of Dance with Joy Enterprises tonight in preparation for the on-stage portion of competition.

The Miss Tech pageant is only days away, and the ladies will have an opportunity tonight to prepare for the swimsuit and evening gown phases of the pageant.

Contestants have already had the opportunity to meet each other at an informational meeting and spa party, and now they will work together to improve their modelling technique, thanks to Murphy’s generosity.

Murphy is the proprietor of Dance with Joy Enterprises and has experience in competitive dance and modelling. She has been a long-time supporter of the Miss Tech Pageant.

Tomorrow, the ladies will participate in mock interviews, conducted by friends of the Miss Tech Pageant, to prepare for the intensive 12-minute private interview they will face on Friday as part of the competition.

The pageant will begin at 7 p.m. on Friday in Witherspoon Auditorium. Tickets for the public are $10 and Arkansas Tech students get in free with a valid Tech ID card.
