Jones is Crowned Miss Enterprise 2017

The Miss Enterprise Pageant was one for the books. It was full of talent, hard work and some amazing girls. Kayla Jones was crowned Miss Enterprise at the end of the night. Kayla was 1st attendant last year under Miss Enterprise 2016, Kimber Hess. Kayla said, “Can’t wait for this fun year.”

Mandi Bollinger pageant Director said, “These girls are more than just a pretty face. They are some smart cookies and have a combined GPA average of 3.94.” One of the most important things to Bollinger is teaching these girls about the importance of service. “Each contestant already completed a portion of the competition, providing at least 10 hours of service in our community. The girls came up with their own ideas of what they wanted to do for their service hours and they did a great job.” Bolinger also mentioned that the royalty will spend many more hours serving the community and the Washington County.
