Teagen Aspell crowned as new Miss Osoyoos at Osoyoos Royalty Pageant
Teagen Aspell was crowned Monday night as the new Miss Osoyoos at the Osoyoos Royalty Pageant held at the Sonora Community Centre.
She was joined by two princesses also crowned Monday — Amara Leeson and Ali Hutter.
In this year’s pageant, five girls competed. The other two were sisters Josie and Jewel McCullough.
Aspell, who is sponsored by Cascade Stucco, replaces the outgoing Miss Osoyoos Gina Pereira. Leeson, sponsored by Desert Aire Realty, and Hutter, sponsored by Mariposa Gardens, fill the vacancies left by princesses Viveka Jensen and Carmen Olsen. Olsen was only able to serve a partial reign, and she was not involved in later months or at Monday’s pageant.
The girls completed their competition on Monday night with answers to an impromptu question and presentation of their gowns, for which they were escorted onto the stage.
After receiving several other awards, many of them won by Aspell including the People’s Choice Award, the winners were announced. They were then crowned an handed bouquets of flowers by their predecessors.
Pereira and Jensen gave emotional speeches filled with laughter and tears as they spoke about how much they learned and matured during their reigns.
Mayor Stu Wells administered an “oath of office” to the three winners, which was based on the oath given by municipal politicians being sworn onto council.
