LITTLE ROCK – A Greenwood native will represent the state as the newest Miss Arkansas following the annual pageant that was held Saturday night.
22-year-old Darynne Dahlem won the competition representing the locally based Miss Apple Blossom Pageant. The event was held at the Robinson Auditorium in downtown Little Rock.
Dahlem’s platform this year has been “Know Who You Are,” and her talent is singing “Somewhere”.
After winning the crown Saturday, Dahlem will compete in the Miss America pageant in Atlantic City. The University of Arkansas graduate has a degree in animal sciences, and is planning on enrolling in medical school.
