Jones reflects on year as Miss Outlook

Published 10:45am Thursday, January 10, 2013

After a year of serving as Miss Outlook, Jordan Jones is preparing to pass the crown this Saturday.

“It’s been so much fun,” Jones said. “I got the chance to be in the Christmas and the Homecoming parades, and I was the first Miss Outlook ever to participate in Jazz Fest. It’s been such a honor.”

Miss Outlook was not the first crown Jones has claimed in her pageant career. She is a previous winner of Little Miss Outlook and Junior Miss Outlook.

Jones said she plans to participate other pageants in the future.

“I love pageants,” Jones said. “I have fun doing them. I’m myself. I’m very sassy onstage, and I don’t hold back at all. (Pageants are) a confidence booster for me.”

Jones said the best thing about winning the Miss Outlook pageant was the full scholarship she received to Central Alabama Community College.

“I was so excited to win, but I was more excited about the scholarship,” Jones said. “I knew how much it would help my family.”

Jones is currently a senior at Benjamin Russell High School and will enroll in CACC in the fall. She hopes to complete her core classes before transferring to Auburn University, where she plans to major in elementary education.

Jones said she looks forward to crowning the 2013 Miss Outlook Calendar Girl Sunday.

“I’m excited to find out who wins it,” Jones said. “I wish all the girls the best of luck.”

The pageant will begin at 7 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $8 per person per day and are available at the door and at the Outlook office.

The Rotary Club of Alexander City will be on hand offering concessions for purchase.
