Miss Reagan County
Big Lake’s Brooklyn Hurt was crowned Miss Reagan County Saturday during Christmas in the Park. Hurt was selected following a one-on-one interview with the judges and a pageant at the Community Building in front of over 80 people in attendance. Hurt carried herself with dignity and grace throughout the competition and will now represent Big Lake and Reagan County at all community events in 2019. She was crowned by Miss Reagan County 2018 Carrisa Guerrero. Brooklyn’s reign as Miss Reagan County will end next year as she passes on her crown to the next Miss Reagan County. Along with the honor, Brooklyn received a $1,000 scholarship from the Big Lake Chamber of Commerce. Analisa Brumley was the runner up and received a $500 scholarship.
