Barboursville Proclamation

Re-post 📷: @wvaffqueen – I am having trouble finding the words to express what an unforgettable evening I had yesterday in Barboursville! I was able to enjoy a delicious meal at Main Street on Central, courtesy of Mayor Tatum and Owner Mark Cross. Following that I was able attend a City Council meeting for the Village of Barboursville which included a Proclamation Ceremony in my honor. As if the evening wasn’t amazing enough already, Mayor Tatum arranged for me to meet Medal of Honor Recipient Hershel “Woody” Williams! I cannot thank Mayor Tatum, Barboursville Pageant Director Beverly Mills or the heroic Woody Williams for this once in a lifetime experience. This has meant so much to me and is something I will never, ever forget. I was so proud to represent Barboursville at the state level and make history this year with our very first win! After this experience I am even prouder to be representing our great state and the selfless individuals behind it. #wvaff #wvaffqueen

National Pancake Day

Re-post 📷: @wvaffqueen – I had such a wonderful time last night at IHOP for National Pancake Day; Pancakes with a purpose! Every stack served helped raise money for local children’s hospitals and health organizations. I definitely ate too many delicious pancakes, but I had some great company! Thank you to everyone that joined us last night and thanks to those who donated! @lexx_lee_ @kristofer8604 “Each one of us can make a difference.
