Anderson County’s 2011 Junior Miss Allie White competed at the state program earlier this month and brought home two awards.
Allie received a preliminary interview award and was first runner-up in the Empowering Tomorrow’s Future scholarship during the Distinguished Young Women of Kentucky program on Jan. 14 and 15. Both awards offer Allie cash scholarships for her future college plans.
Allie and her family issued a thank you to Anderson Countians for all of their support.
“A special thanks goes to the local Junior Miss committee, Early Childhood Center and Regional Training Center, Fox Creek Christian Church, Coach Alex, grandparents, aunts and uncles and Allie’s besties,” said Vickie White, Allie’s mother.
Allie’s family would also like to recognize Sheila Mitchell, Anderson County superintendent, for her participation with this program, along with Sue Lou Smith and John Welsh for their assistance with Allie’s talent performance, and the 2010 Anderson County Junior Miss Casey Harlan for all of her help, Vickie said.
Allie’s father, Tony, and Vickie said they were very humbled by all of the support Allie received during the event.
“Allie has grown to become a beautiful young lady, and we have many individuals to thank for influencing her growth,” Vickie said.
