EDMOND — University of Central Oklahoma senior Allora Herrin, a native of Blanchard, has been crowned Miss University of Central Oklahoma 2013.
She will advance to the Miss Oklahoma pageant.
Herrin competed in smaller pageants when she was young, but this was her first qualifying pageant for Miss Oklahoma.
“Before the pageant, I thought I was going to be a nervous wreck, but I actually was very excited. I think my nerves were settled because all the girls competing were so kind and we had a blast together,” she said.
In addition to the trophy, crown and title, Herrin received a $1,800 tuition waiver scholarship. She received an additional $500 wardrobe allowance and a $700 Children's Miracle Network scholarship.
First runner-up named during the pageant on Saturday was Autumn Circle, a sophomore from Blackwell. Second runner-up was Ashleigh Hamil, a Sand Springs sophomore.
