Miss University of Tennessee at Martin Jordan Cole of Martin and Miss Tennessee Soybean Festival Elizabeth Looney of Eads will join contestants from across the state in the Miss Tennessee Pageant June 18-21. Final competition is at 8 p.m. June 21 at the Carl Perkins Civic Center in Jackson. Miss Cole is a senior human learning major at UTM and Miss Looney is a Northwest Community College student. Also included in the list of contestants are UTM students Miss Metropolitan Hannah-Wade Powell, a freshman criminal justice major from Alamo, and Miss Nashville Brittany Broach, a senior biology major from Milan. “The contestants will have their first official Miss Tennessee duty June 15 at the Old Hickory Mall in Jackson with a meet-and-greet session. The public is encouraged to attend. The Miss Tennessee program books will be available for purchase and all contestants will spend time signing autographs and visiting with their fans,” said Lynn Gibson, Miss UT Martin/Miss Tennessee Soybean Festival director. “Preparing for the entertainment part of the pageant will come first. Pageant preliminaries will begin Wednesday night as they get ready for the Saturday night finals. It would be great to see all the girls progress to the Saturday night event.” For the talent segment, Miss Cole will play the flute and Miss Looney, Miss Powell and Miss Broach will perform vocal selections.
