Taylor Lowery crowned Miss Teen Texas

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - From the dress, to the talent act to finally being crowned as Miss Teen Texas. "To hear my name put with the title of Miss Teen Texas, I didn't even know what to think," said Taylor Lowery, the 2009 Miss Teen Texas.

Lowery is no stranger to the Miss Teen Texas pageant; however, this time around she got what she came for. "It was the most exhilarating feeling that anyone could ever have," she said. "I've experienced it for two years when they didn't call my name so I know what that's like too."

Lowery has been competing in pageants since age two. She said pageants are more than what meets the eye. "It teaches you how to speak to people and obviously you're going to be speaking to people the rest of your life, and it teaches you how to do it in a manner that shows that you have poise and that you're intelligent," explained Lowery.

Behind Taylor's mega-watt smile is a humble girl, proud to be named Miss Teen Texas.

"I want to say thanks to East Texas because I've done this pageant for three years and I've had so many people in the area that have supported me and all the fans that encouraged me and finally I got the title," she said.

Taylor's next step...competing in the Miss Teen America pageant in August.
