Harvell assumes role of Miss Stanly County

Wednesday, December 12, 2012 — After the Locust Christmas Parade, members of the Miss Stanly County Pageant Committee, along with the Junior Miss Stanly County Court, met at the Historical Oakboro Presbyterian Church for a special event.  

Because of a technicality, Emily Huneycutt, who was crowned Miss Stanly County Oct. 6 at the Miss Stanly County Pageant, had to relinquish her title to Madison Harvell, first runner-up at the pageant.

The technicality was that Huneycutt’s birthday prevented her from competing at the Miss North Carolina/Miss America Pageant. A contestant cannot be older than 24 on Dec. 31 in order to compete in a local preliminary.

Abigail Isenhour, Miss Stanly County Outstanding Teen 2013, had the honor of crowning Harvell before an audience of family and friends. After the crowning, Harvell shared her promise to be a great representative for Stanly County during the coming year at the Miss North Carolina Pageant.

Everyone adjourned to the fellowship hall of the church for refreshments and a time to congratulate Harvell and wish her well on her journey to Miss North Carolina.  

The Miss Stanly County Pageant Association wishes Huneycutt the best  in all of her future endeavors as she graduates from East Carolina University.

The committee looks forward to  joining Harvell and Isenhour as they make appearances throughout the county and in their quest for the Miss North Carolina and the Miss North Carolina Outstanding Teen titles.

Harvell is the daughter of Phil and Tammy Harvell of Oakboro.

Isenhour is the daughter of Lainie Cribb and Lane Isenhour.
