Earlier this year, at the Ms. Hopkins County Senior Classic Pageant, Lavonne Elam earned the 2016 crown and since then has stayed busy appearing at ribbon cuttings, parades, grand openings and other public events. Now, Lavonne will represent Hopkins County again as she advances to State competition on October 1 in Tyler. Along with her will be three other Hopkins County ladies, 2016 Talent winner Linda Pickle, 2014 Ms Hopkins County Senior Wanda Wilson and 2012 Ms. Texas Pageant winner Nancy Bolton. Everyone from Hopkins County is invited to attend the pageant and show support for these women who are changing the face of the “over 50” woman and making contributions to the community during their senior years. For more information, call Karon Weatherman at 903-885-1661.
