Thornwell School for the Arts (TSA) recently crowned fourth-grader Zyrianna Cranford and her mother, Courtney O’Neal, as the winners of the school’s annual Miss and Little Miss Heart of TSA.
The school hosted the mother-daughter pageant at Hartsville Middle School to raise money for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. All proceeds from admission and advertisements will be donated, as well as with funds raised from another of the school’s recent Relay for Life fundraiser.
“This pageant was an uplifting, heart-warming event that allowed us to celebrate the beautiful relationship and bond between mother and daughter as well as raise funds for such a great cause, “ said Dr. Lilkenya Jenkins, TSA principal.
Performances by the TSA choir, TSA Dance Company, and Saviah Miller, the current Miss Darlington Teen, helped to make the event an exciting evening.
The pageant consisted of a talent, a formalwear and a casual-wear portion, as well as a question and answer portion.
Parent Cachet McCall and second-grader Tia McCall were named first runners-up. Parent Brittney Kronz and third-grader Olive Kronz were named second runner-ups.
