Miss Western Days is much more than a title, crown, and sash. During this past year, I have gained so many incredible experiences, memories, and friendships. Through representing our beautiful town of Elgin at various parades and events, I have found myself more involved in the community than ever before. One of my favorite memories during this time is many younger girls looking up to me and hoping to be like me one day. I would like to thank my parents and family for giving me the opportunity to do this pageant, and always pushing me to do my best.

I am passionate in everything I do and knowing that I am making a difference is the catalyst that drives me to work hard and be the best leader I can be. During the past few years, I have had the unique opportunity to advocate and be a voice for ailing, hungry and bullied children in the community and abroad.

In addition, I have been the voice for girls in major Girl Scout events and aided in securing a $25,000 Sprint grant for underserved girls within the community.

As an avid humanitarian and high achieving honor student, I believe I qualify to receive the Heart O’ Texas Fair and Rodeo Scholarship. When I think of HOT, I think of the quintessential Texan: someone with a big heart, humble soul, and a great attitude. I am a proud Texan and investing in me for this scholarship will help me continue to spread the Texan way of life. One of my greatest passions is community service and philanthropy. In my sophomore year of high school, I began an organization dedicated to my passions.
She created an environment where we could be ourselves and where we were rewarded when we did well and pushed to be our best selves always. We also had a lot of fun. All of the girls were so sweet and talented, and I think being with Coach Jones brought us close together. Her best friend was a breast cancer survivor, so our team was called the Pink Panthers. We showed our support for breast cancer month by wearing pink jerseys, hair bows, socks, shoelaces, and sparkly monogrammed sweatpants.
However, my favorite volunteering experience was getting to be a “Buddy for Special Olympics”. I was paired with a young girl named Kara with Down Syndrome and the biggest appreciation for life. I walked her to each of her events and cheered her on from the sideline. Even when she didn’t technically win she was so grateful for the opportunity to compete. She gave me a different outlook on life and taught me how to be grateful for every opportunity that comes my
The unforgettable last name, the Henderson’s, still rings a bell and manages to put a smile on all of my family’s face to this day. As a seven year old girl struggling with the language commonly used around her, socializing with my peers was the least of my worries. Luckily, my parents had the brilliant idea of making friends with kids in my neighborhood. Through the Henderson household, I gained much needed confidence socially and academically. As I made friends with a girl my age and my parents associated themselves with the grown-ups, many positive impacts would soon be seen.
Edson 's fabulous Summer Festival This week I was writing a 'Tip of the Hat ' column for the outstanding effort of the Edson and District Chamber of Commerce and the many volunteers who helped bring the Edson Summer Festival to the community, and particularly to the children, who enjoy it so much. Then suddenly my email chimes, and in one of those strange moments of synchronicity, it is our writer Deanna Mitchener with a column on the very topic of volunteering!

So, I will leave this column with a resounding thank you to the Chamber and its volunteers for hosting an event the whole community can enjoy. Anyone who has tried to plan a wedding down to its most
