Davenport is 2011 Chilton County Junior Miss

By Scott Mims

Anna Davenport of Jemison was named Chilton County’s Junior Miss on Sunday — just a year after her sister, Jana, was honored with the same title.

The upcoming Jemison High School senior also won awards for physical fitness, talent, self-expression and scholastics for a total of $3,300 in scholarships.

“Wow,” she said backstage after the winners were announced. “I’m very thankful. It was just a good experience…and I’m shaking.”

Davenport will go on to compete in the Alabama Junior Miss in January 2011 in Montgomery. Her college and career goals involve going into medicine and also majoring in music at either the University of Alabama or Judson College.

Jana Davenport, last year’s Chilton County Junior Miss winner, said she thinks her younger sister will do well at the state level.

“She’s very independent. She does pretty much her own thing most of the time,” she said.

The First Alternate and Spirit of Junior Miss winner was Kristen Robbins, a student at Chilton Christian Academy. Robbins was awarded $1,000 in scholarship money.
