Franklin: Thanks to all for Miss Kentucky aid

-A A +A


I would like to take this opportunity to thank a number of individuals who made my journey to Miss Kentucky 2012 a huge success.

First and foremost, I would like to thank my parents, my brother and the rest of my family, and my boyfriend, for always supporting me 100 percent and being there for me, no matter what the circumstance.

Thank you to my friends, the Stoops family for always being there for me, from the car washes, to the dunking booths, to every night of preliminaries and the final night of Miss Kentucky, words cannot describe how truly grateful I am of your support and friendship, it means the world to me. Also, thanks to Danyelle Hornbeck for coming to the final night of Miss Kentucky on her birthday.

Another thank-you goes out to my personal trainer leading up to the big day, B.J. Watts.

And a special thanks to my hairdresser, Alma.

I’d also like to thank those local individuals and businesses who allowed me to advertise their company/name in the Official Miss Kentucky Program Book and giving their financial support to The Miss Kentucky Scholarship Organization.

A quick thanks to every member of my Relay for Life Team: Team Robbins, I love each and every one of you and am so proud of my team for going above and beyond our goal for The American Cancer Society this year. My platform is one that I am dedicated to year round, and I am so proud to represent The American Cancer Society in The Miss Kentucky Pageant.

Finally, thank you to everyone in the community who had a hand in supporting and encouraging me along the way. Every kind word, nice letter or card and the thoughts and prayers that were given to me throughout this time is very much appreciated. I wouldn’t be where I am today without that.

It’s the main reason why I love Carroll County so much, and I’m honored to represent you. I may not have won Miss Kentucky, but I did win Miss Congeniality – an award I cherish.

To anyone that I have forgotten to mention, please know that it was a long process and I am thankful to anyone who has helped me along the way.
