By By Robbie Byrd, News Editor
The 25th annual Miss Atmore Pageant will be Saturday, May 11 at ECHS Hodnette Auditorium at 7 p.m. The pageant is produced by the Atmore Arts Council and is one of the community's oldest traditions. For 25 years, lovely young ladies from the Atmore area have demonstrated their individual style, grace, and wit in lavish stage productions which are known for their beautiful scenery and spectacular musical production numbers.
The judges are selected from outside the community and have experience in theater, music, or pageants .
The names of the three judges are kept secret until the night of the pageant. Contestants are sophomores, juniors and seniors and are sponsored by area businesses who also help offer an impressive list of prizes to Miss Atmore and her runners up. In keeping with the pageant's reputation of "Never a dull moment," entertainment will be provided by the students of the Atmore Dance Department and the Escambia County Middle School dance team, both directed by Miss Reed Adams, the Atmore Community Band, directed by Mr. Curtis Harris, and the pride of Escambia County Middle School, the superb "concert band" directed by Ms. Debra Smith.
