County crowns a new fair queen

Taylor Miller named Miss Cass County

LOGANSPORT — An explosion of applause came from the standing-room only crowd at the Cass County fairgrounds exhibition building Sunday evening as Taylor Miller cupped her hand over mouth in disbelief before walking forward to accept her crown and sash as the newest Cass County fair queen.

“I’m so excited,” she said. “I can’t even believe it right now. All of the girls are wonderful, and I feel so honored to represent Cass County.”

Miss Cass County 2010 Sarah Robertson presented the new queen with her sash and placed the crown on her head.

“Seeing the look on the face when they are crowned,” Robertson said. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime dream come true.”

Jillian Bower was crowned Miss Congeniality. First runner-up was Bailey Farrer, second runnerup was Sara Champ, third runnerup was Emily Douglass and fourth runnerup was Lindy Hunt.

Grace Scott, the pageant director, praised all of the contestants.

“They were an extremely outstanding group,” she said. “They were a little reserved at first, but through workshops and community service, they really broke out of their shells.”

While she is looking forward to the coming year, Scott said, she will miss working with Robertson.

“She was an amazing queen,” said Scott.

Robertson was somewhat emotional during the ceremony.

“I have a lot of mixed emotions right now,” she said. “But, I had a great year and have no regrets. I wish the same experience for the 2011 queen.”

Robertson said she was excited to have had the opportunity to represent the community and to follow in the footsteps of so many other young women in the past.

The girls were judged on several factors. The interview was the largest portion of the contest with 40 points counting toward the overall score. Professional wear and the evening gown were both worth 20 points each. The introduction and onstage questions were each worth 10 points.
