An aspiring algebra teacher was crowned Miss Fox Creek on Saturday at the Kroc Center.
Morgan Manly, who plans to attend the University of South Carolina Aiken, received a $1,000 scholarship. Contestants competed for the title in sportswear, evening gown and personal interview categories.
“This is really exciting,” said Manly, adding that she first thought it was a joke when her name was called as Miss Fox Creek.
Students from each grade level compete in the pageant, but only a senior can win the title of Miss Fox Creek. Scholarships go to the top three seniors.
