When the new 2011 Miss Texas is crowned Saturday night, it could very well be a Weatherford College student taking that victory walk down the ramp. Clarin Gniffke, Miss Weatherford College, is among the 37 young women competing in the Miss Texas Scholarship Pageant.
Contestants are judged in talent, interview, evening gown, fitness and an on-stage question. At 18, Gniffke is one of the youngest contestants but brings a combination of intelligence, poise, beauty and talent certain to place her among the favorites in all categories.
Home-educated through high school and currently a sophomore at WC where she is president of the WC Republican Club and a member of the honor society Phi Theta Kappa, Gniffke served as an intern in Congresswoman Kay Granger's Washington D.C office and worked last summer on Capitol Hill. Currently, she is interning for Rep. Phil King. She plans to combine her degree in communications and politics in some way after graduation. Not surprisingly, then, her Miss Texas platform topic is Your Vote Counts: Promoting Civic Responsibility through Voting.
Gniffke’s talent presentation will be “You’ll Never Walk Alone” on the harp. She has been studying with Weatherford harpist, performer and teacher, Sydney Howell, herself not a stranger to pageant competition as the 2010 Miss Senior Parker County.
The Miss Texas Scholarship Pageant is part of the Miss America organization. Semi-final competitions in the major categories will be held Tuesday through Thursday with thefinals July 1 at the University of Texas at Arlington. It also will be viewable by webcast live at 7:55 p.m., www.misstexas.org/webcast. Tickets for the pageant still are available through the Miss Texas Central Ticket Office, www.centralticketoffice.com.
