NLCS Board approves Miss North Lawrence Career Center Contest


BEDFORD – During the school board meeting Thursday night students from the North Lawrence Career Center proposed Miss North Lawrence Career Center Contest.

Cydnee Rayhill-Wright, Bella Byers, and Avery O’ Brien approached NLCC Director Amy Redman and other staff with the idea, and took complete control when coming up with the idea.

According to Rayhill-Wright, this contest will allow female students the opportunity to perform and showcase their talents to the same level as the Mr. BNL Contest.

“This is a way to be able to promote the career center as well as the women in the workforce in a male-dominated field,” said Rayhill-Wright. “This builds confidence in applying skills learned in the career center especially in presenting information to an employer and general public.”

During the public presentation, all three told the school board members about the purpose of the contest and how Miss NLCC would be chosen.

The contest will showcase many of the talents of female career students. The program will encourage the community and business community to support all the North Lawrence Career Center students. The Miss NLCC and her court will be spokespeople through the building and community events to promote the NLCC.

The students will utilize many volunteers who have agreed to help produce the Miss NLCC Contest as well as staff to help the students along the way.

Students who want to participate must have a GPA of at least 2.5 and must be Junior or Senior at the North Lawrence Career Center.
