r On April 20, a new Miss Salem royalty was crowned. It was a close competition and the talents were outstanding but in the end, Sadie Stewart Won the title of Miss Salem. Her first attendant is Whitney Wagner, and her second attendant is Whitney Graham.
Stewart said, “I am a senior at Salem Hills High school, and love anchoring on Skyhawk News Network. I plan to attend Brigham Young University in the fall, studying Broadcast Journalism. I chose my platform ‘Hold onto your Wheelpower: End Distracted Driving,’ because distracted driving is a deadly habit that is taking over our lives. In March of 2017, my mom and I were injured in a serious accident caused by a distracted driver. Our lives have been turned upside down, and I want to prevent this from happening to anyone else. To accomplish this, I will speak to junior highs and high schools about the dangers and consequences of driving distracted. In addition, I plan to speak at the elementary schools and host parent nights in order to start the conversation at home. I am thrilled to be Miss Salem 2018 and can’t wait to serve Salem community this year.”
