The Town of Coushatta has recognized Leigha Christen for her accomplishments as State Ambassador. Mayor Johnny Cox presented Leigha with a plaque at the Town Council meeting June 12th. The entire council congratulated her on her achievement.
Here is her story from Tonya Hilton:
Leigha Christen, age 12, was invited to compete as a State Finalist with 43 other girls from all over the state in the National American Miss Pageant for Miss Louisiana Preteen and several other competitions. The Spotlight Contest is an optional contest that allows contestants to promote themselves and their community! Contestants develop speaking and interview skills as they find sponsors from their community.
Through her outstanding efforts in this contest, she was crowned State Ambassador and received an invitation to compete at the National Pageant in Hollywood, which will be during the week of Thanksgiving. The only title higher than State Ambassador is National Cover Girl or Miss Louisiana so it’s a huge title! Louisiana State Ambassador is coming out of little Coushatta! Wow!
She also placed 3rd runner up in the Spokes model contest. She has 1 1/2 min to present a speech on a topic of her choice, which was “Why I say No to drugs”. This contest encourages them to use their voice as future political leaders, journalist, motivational speakers, etc. She did not win the title of Miss Louisiana, but we are so proud of her huge accomplishments!
