Middle school student wins state pageant

Teagan Davis, an incoming eighth-grader at Lake Dallas Middle School, was recently crowned this year’s National American Miss Texas Pre-Teen Cover Girl at the state pageant in July in Dallas.

Davis, the daughter of Nathan and Janay Davis, also took home the spirit award at the pageant and will go on to compete at the national contest in California in November. At school, Davis is active in choir, one-act play, National Junior Honor Society, athletics and student council.

The National American Miss pageants award $1.5 million in cash, scholarships and prizes each year.

Contestants at the state level are judged on formal wear, personal introductions, interviews and an individual community service project.
