Three Queens Poised to Compete in WVAFF Pageant
Good morning Tyler County.
Three queens with ties to our county will be competing next week in the big show West Virginia Association of Fairs and Festivals Pageant.
Eighty-four queens from the across the state are seeking a new tiara next week at the Super Bowl of pageants in Charleston.
Tyler County Fair Queen Seminole Weekley and West Virginia Oil and Gas Festival Queen Autumn Carter along with Middle Island Harvest Festival Queen Celia Morales will be getting out their evening gowns, polishing their interview skills and getting into “pageant” mode for a chance to win the crown.
Tyler County has had solid success at this top tier level.
Once upon a time, Tyler County’s own Brandy Glover-Frye conquered and was crowned as queen of queens in that competition.
And what about this jewel in the crown of a tiara; Emily Lopez, the WVAFF’s queen, will pass the crown to the winner. Not only was Lopez a former WV Oil and Gas Association queen, but she is also the queen of the West Virginia Association of Fairs and Festivals.
More on this story will appear in next week’s Tyler Star News.
In sports news, Tyler Consolidated’s boys’ basketball team will be playing down the river tonight in Ravenswood.
Also worth noting, TCHS track star Nathan Barker will be competing Saturday in the Marietta College High School Icebreaker track meet. Barker, a seasoned hurdler, is sharpening his skills before track season begins in a few short weeks. Good luck.
