Seale excited after winning Pageant
Abby Seale was ecstatic after being crowned Miss Neshoba County Fair 2021 last week.
"It was honestly just a dream come true," Seal said.
Seale, 20, is the daughter of Steve and Tina Seale of the Forestdale community in Neshoba County.
Seale said she has dreamed of becoming Miss Neshoba County Fair since she was a little girl. Her sister Miriam Seale was crowned Miss Neshoba County Fair in 2016.
Miriam Seale helped her sister with her fashion choices, and Abby said she welcomed her sister's input in such decisions as picking out dresses.
"It has just been such a beautiful tradition to watch the young women of Neshoba County compete in the past," Abby Seal said.
She said she enjoyed getting to know the 12 other competitors in the pageant, and before the pageant, they all prayed and put everything in God's hands.
Seale served as Neshoba County's Distinguish Young Woman in 2019 and she also placed in the top 10 of the Miss Maroon and White competition in Starkville.
After her win last week, Seale had many Fairgoers congratulate her on being crowned 2021's Miss Neshoba County Fair, and she posed for numerous pictures with people at the Fair throughout the week.
Seale is a member of Kappa Delta at Mississippi State University, and several of her sorority sisters came to support Seale in the pageant last week.
Seale is going into her junior year at Mississippi State University, majoring in kinesiology with concentrations in neuromechanics and pre-nursing.
"I hope to further my education by getting a doctorate in physical therapy," she said.
