Another year, another successful Miss West Unity pageant. 26 lovely young ladies were vying for the title in their respective categories, with a new addition of Tiny Miss West Unity this year. In a tropical rainforest theme this year, a faux waterfall with palm trees helped bring the evening alive with the dancing, hula hooping, singing and gorgeously dressed ladies.
Set in the Hilltop school commons, the evening opened with dance arrangements performed by the young ladies to showcase their poise, talents and grace. As the summer wear, introductions and interview portions of the evening were complete, all 26 ladies changed quickly into their evening wear gowns. Escorted by their fathers and grandfathers, each lovely young lady gracefully ambled across the stage with hopeful smiles of earning the title in their category.
Crowned as winners in their respective category are Demi Hancock, Tiny Miss West Unity; Gabrielle Rodriguez, Little Miss West Unity; Zoi Bauer, Junior Miss West Unity and Sydni Rivera, Miss West Unity. 1st Runners-up were Nayah Rodriguez, Tiny Miss runner-up; Matayvia VanZile, Little Miss runner-up; Mackenzi Rivera, Junior Miss runner-up and Katrina Gonzales, Miss runner-up.
