Hawkinsville High senior crowned Dogwood Queen

Sun News correspondentMarch 20, 2013 

Abigail Holtzhouser, a senior at Hawkinsville High School, was crowned the 2013 Miss Dogwood Queen at the annual pageant held at Perry High School on March 9.

Holtzhouser, who plans to attend the University of Alabama, is a member of the FFA, 4H and Beta Club at Hawkinsville High School. She is on the golf team, captain of the majorette team and the senior class vice president.

She has been doing pageants since she was 5 years old and currently holds three titles -- Miss Dogwood, Miss Hawkinsville High School and Miss Hawkinsville Harness Festival.

“I like being on stage and in front of people,” Holtzhouser said. “I have so much fun doing (pageants) and have met so many friends, people that I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to meet otherwise.”

The pageant is held each year as a fundraiser for the Perry High School cheerleaders. Eighty-two girls competed for the six titles. As Dogwood queen, Holtzhouser will reign over the Perry Area Chamber of Commerce’s annual Dogwood Festival to be held April 13-14
