47th Annual Miss Syhiscan Beauty Walk

The Sylacauga High School Journalism Staff hosted the 47th annual Miss Syhiscan beauty walk on Sunday, March 10, 2019. Twenty-eight contestants showcased poise and beauty as they took the stage to compete for the this year’s title of Miss Syhiscan. Miss Syhiscan is not just a beauty walk, but rather a chance for young women to express themselves and display their leadership skills. Miss Syhiscan represents her school, and the winner is chosen based on confidence, beauty, presence, and overall delivery.
Following the opening number by the 2018 Miss Syhiscan winner, Ibby Dickson, each contestant presented a quick self-expression speech, and then the beauty walk began. The entertainment for the night consisted of Sylacauga High School’s very own talents, Ibby Dickson, Landon Owen, Faith Richardson, and theater teacher Lauren Taunton. The students and staff did an incredible job and left the audience impressed.
As the event came to an end, four grade winners along with the 2019 Miss Syhiscan were chosen. The winners are as followed: Freshman: Kiyla McNealy; Sophomore: Ella Kate Brooks; Junior: Kyla McKinney; Senior: Alex White. The newly crowned 2019 Miss Syhiscan is Senior, Grace Abernathy. Grace was shocked when she heard her name and was honored to receive the title. When asked what being crowned this year’s Miss Syhiscan meant to her, she said “being crowned Miss Syhiscan has definitely been a highlight of my senior year. It has been an honor to represent my high school and such an empowering group of young ladies.” Congratulations to Grace, the contestants who won their grade levels, and the ladies who participated.
