Four Arkansas Tech students will be among more than forty women across the Natural State arriving in Hot Springs next week to compete in the Miss Arkansas Pageant.
The contestants will arrive in the Spa City on Wednesday and will compete in several preliminary phases of competition prior to the final competition on Saturday.
Lindsey Ahrens, a sophomore from Russellville, will be competing as Miss Arkansas Tech University. Ahrens will perform a vocal rendition of "Bridge Over Troubled Water" for her talent. Her critical issue is taking a stand for abstinence.
Naomi Shure, a senior from Alma, is the reigning Miss Lake Dardanelle. She'll be presenting a vocal performance of "And I am Telling You" during the talent competition. Claiming domestic peace is her critical issue.
Hannah Williamson, a junior from Russellville, is competing as the current Miss Arkansas Valley. Williamson will sing "Via Dolorosa" for her portion of the talent competition. Her critical issue is reaching out to the children of deployed parents.
Mikayla Adair, a sophomore from Havana, will compete as Miss Ozark Highlands. Adair will give a vocal performance of "Sway" for her talent, and her critical issue is helmet safety.
The winner of the Miss Arkansas Pageant will represent the state at the Miss America Pageant in January.]]>
