Hancock County can lay claim to two winners after both the titles of Miss United States Kentucky and Miss Jr. Teen Kentucky United States were claimed last month by girls with deep county ties.
Adrienne Poole, the daughter of North Hancock Elementary principal Paul Poole and his wife Eva, and granddaughter of longtime Lewisport residents Clyde and Georgene Poole, was crowned Miss United States Kentucky in the 20-29 age group.
Shealyn Mason, formerly of Hawesville, and the daughter of Jaclyn Mason, won Miss Jr. Kentucky United States, and will be featured in next week’s Clarion.
