Now that her reign as Miss Neshoba County has come to an end, Macken'z Smith is looking forward to the rest of the Fair and then she will be off to East Central Community College for her freshmen year.

She plans a career as a skin specialist.

The 2013 Miss Neshoba County is the daughter of Susan and Bill Smith.

A Newton County High School graduate, Smith is an avid tennis player.

She will continue her tennis career as a member of the Lady Warrior tennis team at EC.

Among the highlights of her reign was being a role model to all the "little girls."

"I got to be the girl that every little girl looked up to," Smith said.

She enjoys spending time with her family and friends, especially during the Fair.

One of the highlights of the Fair for her is spaghetti night at the Smith and Vance Cabin on the racetrack.

Besides spaghetti night being the night of the pageant, Smith loves that the spaghetti sauce is made from scratch by the hands of her grandmother.

Even though she completed in the Miss Neshoba County pageant last year, Smith made sure that she did not miss her grandmother's spaghetti.

She has shared her favorite recipes.
