Well … our “lake” girl, Miss Tennessee Hannah Robison, may not have won the Miss America Pageant, but she certainly won our hearts and respect.
She did win the “America’s Choice” award, based on Facebook and Twitter votes which guaranteed her a spot in the top 15. But we all know she would have made it there anyway.
She made it to the top 7 in the competition. She also won a Gold “Duke of Edinburgh Award”, a STEM Scholarship, and was 1st runner up for the “Jean Bartel Quality of Life Award.” Kind of shows you what type of girl our Hannah is.
Congratulations on your achievements Hannah! We couldn’t be more proud of you! Thank you for representing us!
Here at Paris Landing we're all keeping all our toes and fingers crossed hoping our Lake Girl, Miss Tennessee Hannah Robison wins the Miss America title later this month. In the mean time, you can help guarantee her a place in the top 15 by voting on Facebook or Twitter. There are just a couple of days left to vote, so don't delay. If you aren't already doing this, just copy and post the following: Tennessee #MissAmericaVote on your Facebook page or Twitter.
For 3 days now everyone around Paris Landing has been keeping their fingers crossed, hoping, wishing and praying that our little Hannah Robison might be the next Miss Tennessee. The daughter of Rusty and Pam Robison at Buchanan Resort here at Paris Landing, Hannah grew up in our neighborhood. She was a beautiful sweet-natured child with big beautiful brown eyes and eye lashes to die for.
She's all grown up now. 21 years old now, she is pursuing a major in chemistry and a minor in psychology at UT Martin. She was a winner in the swimsuit portion of the Miss Tennessee Scholarship Pageant and the talent portion for a piano performance of “E1 Cumbanchero.”
We are really proud of our lake girl!
Can’t wait to see you in the Miss America pageant!
Our KOA Kampground at Paris Landing has new owners - Stephen & Shannon Bentley - and I love this photo they posted on their Facebook page. It reminds me of my own childhood here at the lake, when life was a little less complicated and all we needed for entertainment was an inner tube or raft and water.
