Milligan to host pageant for women with special needs

MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (Nov. 11, 2015) — Milligan College will host the “Ms. Princess Pageant” on Saturday, November 21, at 5 p.m. in Milligan’s McGlothlin-Street Theatre located in the Gregory Center for women of all ages who have special needs and challenges. The event is free and open to the public.

Participants are represented from various organizations including Dawn of Hope, Enhanced Support Services and Science Hill High School. The women will walk the stage in formalwear, complete a short interview and perform a talent for the audience. At the night’s conclusion, all participants will be crowned and given awards.

“The pageant is designed to celebrate the inner and outer beauty of the special needs community by giving individuals a night to express themselves,” said Milligan junior Michaela Dove, event coordinator for LINC (Linking Individuals to the Needs of the Community), which is sponsoring the event. “Our hope is that each individual will leave feeling love and support from the community.”

The LINC volunteer center is a student-run organization that connects Milligan students to volunteer needs in the surrounding community.
