Nelson County, VA
It was all smiles for 18 year old Hayli Brooke Baker of Nelson County this past Saturday night. She was crowned Miss Nelson County VA during the annual pageant held at Nelson County High School. Over 200 people looked on as Hayli along with several other young women and youngsters were crowned.
“In addition to the pageant itself we donated $850.00 to the Wounded Warrior program and the Ruritans of Nelson either sold out of food or came pretty close. This was a good fund raiser for them,” said Melanie Embrey, Director of the pageant. Miss Nelson also received a 500 dollar scholarship and goes directly to the Miss Dogwood pageant held in Charlottesville on April 26th.
