WOODVILLE – The Miss Tyler County scholarship organization made a presentation last Thursday to give thanks to the various charities that helped make this year’s pageant a success.

The organization presented a check to several non-profit organizations in the county at the request of its donors.

Kristi Hughes, of the Miss Tyler County organization, said that this year’s pageant was the most successful one yet, with the most donations received in its history. 

“We had the most participants and the most support that we have ever had,” she said.

Part of that success, Holmes said, could be attributed to the pandemic. In 2021, the pageant had to be put on hold, as COVID was still rampant. 

“I personally give credit to COVID for this because I believe people were excited that the world was opening back up, and people were ready to get their lives back to normal,” Hughes said.

The check presented on Thursday on the lawn of the Tyler County Courthouse represents donations of $200 apiece to give back to non-profit organizations, in the names of the pageant’s sponsors.

A total of $2,000 was given back. “We are so excited to give back to our community that always gives to our organization and participants,” Holmes said.

Miss Tyler County provided a list of the sponsors and the organizations they wanted donations given to. It as as follows:

 

Moffett & Company Real Estate and Jenny Kirkpatrick-Castillo Children’s Center

Modica Brothers- 

Markus and Sunny Clowers- Warren Fire Department
