Harley Shiver, the reigning Little Miss Colquitt, will represent her hometown in the Little Miss National Peanut Festival Pageant on Saturday, October 11. The Little Miss National Peanut Festival Pageant will be held at the Dothan Civic Center at 6:00 p.m.

Harley has been preparing for the pageant since June. She has made several trips to Dothan for pictures, orientation, rehearsals, and workdays. Her final workday is on Friday, October 10, when she will spend the entire day rehearsing and touring Dothan with the 49 other girls from Alabama, Georgia, and Florida who are competing in the pageant and also representing their hometowns.

Harley is the daughter of John and Lesley Shiver and is in the second grade at Miller County Elementary School. She is a member of Flat Creek Baptist Church and has been a cast member of Swamp Gravy for the past five years. She also played the role of Tinker Bell in "Peter Pan" and has competed in numerous dance and cheerleading competitions in the tri-state area.

Harley is very excited about the National Peanut Festival Pageant. She has had the opportunity to meet new friends and learn new things about them and their hometowns. This has been a meaningful experience that she will never forget. She is very proud to be from Colquitt and would like to thank the Epsilon Alpha Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi for sponsoring her in this pageant. She will do her very best to represent her town well!

If you would like to send good luck wishes to Harley, she will be at the Holiday Inn, 2195 Ross Clark Circle SE in Dothan, AL, on Friday and Saturday. The phone number there is 334-794-8711.

Everyone in Colquitt wishes Harley good luck in the pageant.
