Pageant crowns double titles
Miss City of Ruston was named first, and it went to Taryn Sanford.
Sanford said she was excited about her new title and her future as a Ruston Queen.
“This has been a great learning experience for me, and I look forward to the year ahead,” she said.
Aaron Beeson, the physical fitness winner and talent winner, was crowned Miss Queen Dixie Gem.
“This is my first year to do pageants and it is very out of character for a basketball-playing tomboy from Calhoun to be up here,” she said.
“But, I have received a lot of support and good advice. It feels unbelievable to win.”
