Five girls competed in Meridian/Lauderdale County's Miss Hospitality Pageant on Saturday and one of them walked away with a crown.
The girls went through an interview and speech competition at the Merrehope Mansion vying for a $600 scholarship to Meridian Community College and a chance to compete on the state level for a $10,000 scholarship.
Lauren Goodman was named the 2004 Miss Hospitality. WTOK-TV's own Heather Goodwin came in as first alternate. Good luck to Lauren at the state competition.
