The Little Miss National Peanut Festival Pageant will be held at the Dothan Civic Center at 6:00 p.m.

Recently, while attending a parent orientation and tea, 46 young ladies from 11 counties in three states began preparing to compete for the title of Little Miss National Peanut Festival. Her final rehearsal is on Friday, October 15, when she will spend the entire day rehearsing and touring Dothan with the 45 other girls from Alabama, Georgia, and Florida who are competing in the pageant and also representing their hometowns. All of the Little Miss contestants will be treated like royalty as they will be chauffeured around Dothan in limousines.

Haley is the daughter of Mark and Jennifer Whitaker and is in the second grade at Miller County Elementary School, where she is on the honor roll.

Haley is very excited about the National Peanut Festival Pageant. She has had the opportunity to meet new friends and learn new things about them and their hometowns. This has been a meaningful experience that she will never forget. She is very proud to be from Colquitt and would like to thank the Epsilon Alpha Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi for sponsoring her in this pageant. She will do her very best to represent her town well!

Everyone in Colquitt wishes Haley good luck in the pageant.

Jordie King, the reigning Miss Colquitt, competed in the Miss National Peanut Festival on Friday, October 1, and Saturday, October 2, and represented her hometown well as she received the Miss Congeniality award.

Both Jordie and Haley will join the other Colquitt queens on Saturday, November 6, as they participate in the National Peanut Festival Parade.

Good luck, Haley!
