Paige Kuhn named Miss Grays Harbor 2015

From KXRO:

A second Kuhn has become Miss Grays Harbor.

On Saturday night, 20 year old Aberdeen High School graduate and Eastern Washington University student Paige Kuhn was named as Miss Grays Harbor 2015.

In a post from Paige, she said, “My first memory of the Miss Grays Harbor pageant is from when I was 6 years old, and I made my sister Lauren Kuhn, a paper sash that said “future Miss Grays Harbor” on it, as she was preparing to sing the national anthem at the show. It’s crazy to think that I too was a future Miss Grays Harbor!”

Kuhn earned not only the title, but over $5,000 in scholarship money from multiple awards.

This will not be Paige’s first trip to the Miss Washington stage, formerly earning her way to the state competition as Miss Apple Valley.

Kuhn is the sister of former Miss Grays Harbor, and current Miss Massachusetts, Lauren Kuhn, who was named as 4th Runner Up at Miss America this year.

On Friday night, 16 year old Aberdeen High School student Nora Coffelt earned the title of Miss Grays Harbor’s Outstanding Teen, earning her way to the Miss Washington’s Outstanding Teen competition.
