Shelly Womack named 2011 Escambia County Jr. Miss

Six young women were vying for the title of Escambia County Junior Miss Saturday night on the campus of Jefferson Davis Community College in Brewton with Shelly Womack earning the right.

Shelly Womack, the daughter of David and Janet Womack and  a student at Excel High School, will be representing Escambia County for the next year as its Junior Miss as well as at the state competition in Montgomery in January of 2011.

Womack said it was an incredible feeling to be named Junior Miss.

“It’s absolutely amazing and life changing,” Womack said. “I know this experience is going to change my life for the better.”

Womack was also presented with awards for her talent and self expression.

Cierra White, of Flomaton, was named the first alternate and Walton Nichols, of Atmore, was named second alternate.

See Wednesday’s edition of The Atmore Advance for more information.
