Several weeks after Miss Arkansas, Mrs. Micki Konecny called me and wanted to plan a reception in my honor! We booked the First Baptist Activity Center and sent out invitations to all Studio Allegro students. Also, Mr. Bill placed an invitation in the Stuttgart Daily Leader and we had a great turn out!
Mrs. Micki first welcomed every to come in and take a seat. After she spoke for a moment, we watched each of my phases from the Miss Arkansas pageant competition on the overhead screen. In between each phase, I stood up to share stories and thoughts. Afterwards, I signed photographs, took plenty of pictures, and enjoyed cake and punch. Yum!
A special THANK YOU goes to Mrs. Micki and Studio Allegro. I fully appreciate all of the help and guidance that you have given me! You have been a mentor to me while teaching me skills, talents, and life lessons. We are blessed to have someone like you in Stuttgart who has invested in so many girls and shared your talents! Thank you very much... I love you!
Mrs. Micki and me!
Riley, my special princess, gets a little help with putting on her crown!
