TELL CITY - A packed fellowship hall at Evangelical United Church of Christ was the scene of Monday evening's Junior Miss and Miss Schweizer Fest pageants. This was the second year for the event, which began with last year's sesquicentennial.


In the Miss Schweizer Fest Pageant, Monica Perryman was awarded the crown with Shayna Richardson named first alternate. Kelsie Bland took awards for Miss Photogenic and Miss Congeniality. In the Junior Miss pageant, Crystal Peter was crowned queen, with Darian Oliva first alternate and Kaylee Henderson second alternate.

Kosha Wetzel was named Miss Photogenic with Whittney Huff named Miss Congeniality.

Perryman, who was crowned by 2008 Schweizer Fest Queen Ashley Hubert and Brittany Nance, the 2009 Indiana State Festival Queen, is eligible to compete this fall in the state festival pageant.
