Abby and I have returned from Tulsa, where we covered the 2010 Miss Oklahoma Scholarship Pageant at the invitation of our friend, Miss Oklahoma 2009/Miss Ada 2006 Taylor Treat.

The Ada area had two young ladies in the running, Miss Southeastern Oklahoma Katy Caudle and Miss Ada Jamie Drawbaugh. Neither made the top 15 (the first cut of the evening), but their appearances were excellent and it was nice seeing them.

Of course it was great to see and photograph Taylor again, who made several appearances in Ada during her year as Miss Oklahoma. Last night marked the end of her reign, of course, and while it was sad to see it end, I have to say that it would be hard to ask for a more intelligent and engaging person to represent Oklahoma, nor could we have asked for one with a better cause, service learning.

Thank you, Taylor, for a great year.

  2. Despite my very strong opinion that people shouldn’t compete in, watch, or encourage in any way these types of pageants, I must say that I agree with Abby on Taylor’s appearance.

    That dress is awesome. More high school proms should feature fantastic outfits like this one.

    Great image, Richard.
