Miss Houston County High


The 26th Annual Miss Houston County High School Scholarship Pageant was held Saturday February 23rd, 2019 at 7:00 pm in the Houston County High Theater. This pageant is a HOCO Band Sponsored event and has proven to be a very successful fundraiser this year! Erin Sullivan, Co-Owner of Peacocks Performing Arts Academy did an amazing job as pageant directors. The band was yet again blessed to have Carol Hamilton act as the Pageant coordinator.

Judging the Event were Therisa Patton, Caiveon Thomas, and Chrissy Miner. Special Performances included an amazing performance of The National Anthem by Brayden Hutcheson. The directors of HCHS band programs, Jay Davis and Rebekah Daniel, Peacocks Performing Arts Competition Team and the HCHS Brass Quintet were also featured during the pageant. Lyndsay Richardson hosted our event as Emcee.

At the end of the evening the reigning 2018 Miss HCHS, Grace Thomas, crowned Mary Grace Moore as the new 2019 Miss Houston County High School.

For the weeks preceding the pageant, all 12 contestants worked diligently preparing for the pageant choreography, attending rehearsals, practicing for the optional talent competition, preparing the interviews and selling tickets and ads for the program.

We would like to congratulate each of our Preliminary Winners of the evening as well:

First Runner Up – Peyton Barfield
Second Runner Up – Kinley Pridgen

On behalf of the HCHS band, we would like to thank all of the local sponsors, especially Publix on 96, Will Conner & Nancy Berry with Zaxby’s on 96 and Christian Sullivan and Tricia Parker

We also sincerely give thanks to the many parent volunteers that helped with the production behind the scenes, donated food, supplies, and time to make the pageant a HUGE success!
