Congratulations to our Miss Goldsboro 2017, Courtney Smith and Miss Goldsboro’s Outstanding Teen 2017, Peyton Brown! We are so proud of our Goldsboro Girls, who represented us beautifully at the Miss North Carolina pageant in June. Both ladies dazzled onstage in talent, fitness, evening gown and onstage question as well as their personal interviews with the panel of judges.
The Miss and Teen Finals found both Courtney and Peyton in the Top 5. Peyton was 2nd runner-up in the Miss NC’s Outstanding Teen pageant, while Courtney was 1st runner-up to Miss North Carolina. She earned the highest placement for any Miss Goldsboro in over 20 years! In addition to their Top 5 placements, both ladies received Preliminary awards.
