Holston crowned Miss PCHS

Sara Holston was crowned as Miss Pulaski County High School 2009 Saturday night during the annual Miss PCHS Pageant.
Holston, 16, is the daughter of Dean and Susan Holston. She will be a 2010 PCHS graduate.
Her hobbies include swimming, riding horses, texting and shopping. While in high school, she has been a cheerleader, member and treasurer of the FFA, a member of the Rodeo Club and the Virginia High School Rodeo Association. She is the 2008-09 Virginia High School Rodeo Queen, a student at the Southwest Virginia Governor’s School, and is a member of the state runner-up parliamentary procedures and agriculture communications team.
After graduation, she plans to attend either Virginia Tech or Duke University and pursue a career in veterinary medicine or pediatric medicine, with the ultimate goal of owning her own veterinarian practice and having a farm for retired or injured horses. As Miss PCHS, Holston said she would like to focus on the prevention of drug abuse by teenage students. She said she "feels that peer pressure is very strong in high schools and she would like to encourage teenagers to become involved in their communities so they will not yield to the pressure to use drugs."
As Miss PCHS 2009, Holston received a cash prize of $200 on behalf of Jostens from Jostens representative Jeff Leach and other gifts from local sponsors, along with a jeweled crown and sash, compliments of PCHS, for a total prize package of $700.
First runner-up in the pageant was Demi Katherine Milstead, the 16-year-old daughter of Kim and Tim Gregory of Pulaski. As first-runner up, she received a prize package valued at $300.
The pageant’s second runner-up was Lindsey Beth White, the 18-year-old daughter of Shannon and Derick White of Dublin. As second-runner up, she received a prize package valued at $200.
Twenty-eight young women entered the Miss PCHS pageant, and were judged on poise, personality and beauty. Fifty-percent of each contestant’s overall score was based on a private interview held before the pageant, 25 percent was based on the casual wear competition, and another 25 percent was based on the evening gown competition.
From the original 28 contestants, 10 finalists were chosen. Those 10 finalists included: Holston, Milstead, White, Magen Stacy, Alison Sutphin, Katrina King, Karly Hubbard, Chelsea Gusler, Ashlin Jackson and Marissa Clark.
Each of the 10 finalists were judged on an onstage interview question. The six contestants with the highest scores were then chosen as finalists. The top six finalists included: Holston, Milstead, White, Sutphin, King and Clark, who all answered an additional interview question, before the judges made their final decisions.
Stepping down from the role of Miss PCHS 2008 was Reba Collins, a 2008 PCHS graduate.
"I want to thank PCHS and the judges for giving me this opportunity," Collins said. "It was a great experience, and it was an honor to serve as a role model. I hope the next Miss PCHS will have as much fun as I did."
Judges for the pageant included Amanda Dean, a teacher in Campbell County who is currently serving as the production chair for the Virginia’s Junior Miss Program; Dr. David DeHaven, a 1997 PCHS graduate who has worked with pageants his entire life, having served as an emcee, pageant director and judge for numerous Miss Virginia Preliminary Pageants; Stacy Arnett, a teacher in Pulaski County who was Miss New River Valley Fair 1991 and participated in the Miss Virginia pageant as Miss Montgomery County in 1993; Joan Frost, sport chairperson for the Virginia Commonwealth Games who is a certified VHSL official for competitive cheerleading and has coached recreation, high school and all-stars teams for many years.
Sponsors of the 2009 Miss PCHS Pageant included: Rod Reedy, PCHS principal, Eleven West, Jeff Leach of Jostens, Bobby and Martha Jackson, Scott Arnett of Horace Mann, Andy Owens of Edward Jones Investments, Northside Flower Shop, New Dimensions, Lemon’s Jewelry, Cougar Express, Dublin Floral Expressions, Stacy Arnett with Sabika Jewelry, Karen Freier with Sabika Jewelry, who provided gifts for the judges and Fatz Cafe, who provided a meal for the judges, Garrett’s and Meg’s, Hair Express, Caribbean Tan, Platinum Tanz, Jennifer Price of Designs by Jennifer, Makin’ Waves, Unique Salon, Tiffany Payne with Longerberger, Nancy’s Hair Salon, Headliners, Peebles, Twins’ Bakery, Tan Express, Carilion New River Valley Medical Center, Sherry Bralley with Home and Garden Party, and Townhouse Beauty Shop.
