Miss Syracuse Royalty

Mckena competed in the Miss Syracuse Pageant Sat Night and was crowned 1st attendant. It was a very fun and rewarding experience for her. She had to have an interview with judges in the morning, and then the evening pageant consisted of swimsuit competition, talent, and then evening wear. She also had an onstage question that she needed to answer. She did a great job and we are so very proud of her.
