COLUMBIANA – Trussville native Holland Brown was crowned Miss Shelby County 2014 at the Miss Shelby County pageant Friday, July 19.

Brown was crowned Miss Auburn University January 7 and will compete in the 2014 Miss Alabama Pageant.

Brown said she is excited to be able to promote her platform, juvenile diabetes.

“I’m just really excited about being able to promote my platform,” Brown said. “I’ve heard this community is so supportive.”

In the Miss Shelby County Outstanding Teen competition, Mikaylah Dugans won Outstanding Teen and the fitness and talent competitions. Dugans is a Springville, Ala. native and said the pageant has made her a well-spoken, poised lady.
