Miss Louisiana Reception
Beautiful young ladies from around Louisiana lived it up with pageant sponsors, organizers and enthusiasts June 22, as Dr. Guthrie Jarrell opened his home to Miss Louisiana Jaden Leach and the contestants of the 2014 Miss Louisiana Pageant for the annual pre-pageant reception party. Dr. Jarrell began hosting the annual reception over 25 years ago.
The party gives contestants an opportunity to socialize with the people who make the pageant possible and gives pageant organizers and sponsors a chance to meet the women, one of whom will become the next Miss Louisiana. Both the Miss Louisiana Organization and the contestants look forward to the cocktail party, which over the years has become a fixture of pageant week events.
The Miss Louisiana Pageant was held June 26-28 at the Monroe Civic Center. On Saturday night, Miss Lafayette Lacey Sanchez was crowned Miss Louisiana 2014.
