Kassidy Gillis, a first-year speech and hearing sciences major from Olive Branch, Miss., was crowned Miss Beautiful 2019 at Delta State University’s annual Most Beautiful Pageant and Top 10. The event, which featured two dozen contestants, took place on April 9 in the Bologna Performing Arts Center.

Four other beauties earned recognition: Taylor Weeks (Grenada), Denicia Dew (Yazoo City), Haley Hill (Isola), and Eva Grace McCrory (Clinton).

“We had another great pageant this year,” said Bevin Lamb, executive director of pageants. “We had 24 contestants, and we appreciate everyone from the campus and community who came to support them.”

The pageant was sponsored by the Delta State University Student Government Association and produced by the Pageant Board, a Delta State student organization. Contestants are judged on beauty, confidence, and stage presence. There is also a Most Photogenic Award.
