Turns out there were three Georgetown College students who competed for the title of Miss Kentucky on July 16 at UK’s Singletary for the Arts. Incoming freshman Jessica Casebolt of Pikeville, left, was in the scholarship pageant along with previously reported GC students Arielle Evans of Louisville, center; and Mira Roxanne Baker of Somerset, right.
Casebolt (Miss Renfro Valley) plans to major in English Literature; Arielle Evans (Miss Jeffersontown) will be a senior Exercise Science major/Spanish and Musical Theatre double minor; and Baker, (Miss Bluegrass Area), will be a senior Political Science major. Baker won GC’s annual Belle of the Blue Scholarship Pageant in February, then represented the College in the Kentucky Mountain Laurel Festival pageant in May.
The three young women had just walked to the Kentucky Children’s Hospital to hang out with the Children’s Miracle Network kids for the afternoon when this photo was taken during pageant week in Lexington.
Bowling Green’s Ann-Blair Thornton, a senior at Western Kentucky University, won the crown and will represent Kentucky in the Miss America Scholarship Pageant.
