The Miss Spanish Fork Competition was held March 10, at Maple Mountain High School. Morgan Olson was named Queen and given the 2018 Miss Spanish Fork title.
Olson said, “I am currently a senior at Spanish Fork High School and have loved being a part of the cheer team there. I will be attending UVU this fall majoring in communications. I hope to attend law school and eventually become a criminal justice lawyer. My platform is entitled “Hospital Heroes” which is about being an advocate for children in hospitals. I am thrilled to be Miss Spanish Fork 2018 and serve our community.”
First attendant Jill McConnell said, “I am the daughter of Cary and Andrea McConnell. I graduated from Karl G. Maeser in 2016. I recently completed my second year of college. My major is Political Science. Once I graduate I plan on going to Law School to get my Juris Doctorate. I hope to be an attorney and ultimately a judge. I love to read, dance, play the piano and be outside fore wheeling, hiking or just taking a walk. I love to serve and be involved in the community. I am excited for the amazing year ahead of me.”
Kate McInelly was named second attendant. She said, “I’m very excited, and grateful for the opportunity to serve the city of Spanish Fork as second attendant! I am currently a full-time student at Brigham Young University studying elementary education. I one day hope to be an elementary school teacher. Along with a love for teaching, I am very passionate about reading, which is something I hope to share with my community this coming year. I am very optimistic about this coming year serving as part of the Miss Spanish Fork royalty, and I look forward to the new opportunities it will bring me.”
