Oak Mountain High School junior Myrah Taylor was crowned Miss Point Mallard’s Outstanding Teen during the Spirit of America Festival held July 3-4 in Decatur. She bested 18 other young women in the competition. Taylor’s designation earns her a chance to compete in the 11th annual Miss Alabama’s Outstanding Teen Pageant, which will be held March 2013 in Sylacauga.
Myrah, daughter of Dr. Brenda and Robert Taylor, has danced for more than 14 years and has been a member of her middle and high school dance team for four years. She is also the recipient of a Girl Scout Gold Award.
Her platform in the competition focuses on neglected and abused children, and she has a special desire to mentor girls with low self-esteem. Taylor partners with Grace House Ministries and The Owens House and said she hopes that communities will support her cause by purchasing blue ribbons to display on doors and mailboxes.
