Shelby said, "I have had a blast so far. There are so many things to be learned and gained from being in pageants: confidence, self-esteem, organization and time management skills, ability to break communication barriers, and many more things. It is amazing to see all the hard work that must go into certain events such as the fair, or the Little Miss Pageant. I have had tons of fun working with the committee, my attendants/little miss, and the entire community. It is so fun to represent such a fun and supportive county with such a close bond. I have loved having many opportunities to share my thoughts and talents with others, and also the chance to make my goals become reality."
