Send Off Celebration Planned May 22 for Miss SWOSU Reps
A special send off celebration will be held for 2011 Miss SWOSU Rachel Denison and Miss SWOSU Outstanding Teen Danielle Lewis before they head to the Miss Oklahoma Pageant in Tulsa.
The come-and-go event is open to everyone and will take place in the SWOSU Conference Center on Sunday, May 22, from 2-4 p.m. Debbie Brown said there will be refreshments, and the two contestants will perform their talents and model their competition clothes.
Rachel Denison, a freshman at SWOSU from Idabel, will tap dance to Dancing Fool by Barry Manilow. She will compete for Miss Oklahoma on June 4-11. Danielle Lewis, a junior at Lawton Eisenhower High School, will tap to The Devil Went Down to Georgia by the Charlie Daniels Band. She will compete in Miss Oklahoma’s Outstanding Teen Competition that same week. The finals for Miss Oklahoma will be held June 11 at 7:30 p.m. at the Mabee Center in Tulsa.
Five-year-old Oklahoma Star Paige Robinson of Weatherford will also be in attendance at the Miss Oklahoma Pageant. She is the daughter of Shelby and Kimberly Robinson and will be on stage during the evening gown competition with Denison.
The May 22 celebration is hosted by the Miss Southwestern Pageant Board. The 2011 Miss SWOSU Pageant will be held November 12 on the SWOSU campus.
