The Central District Missionary Baptist Association held its annual Rose Pageant April 28 at Pine Hill Missionary Baptist Church at Pine Bluff.


Four of the eight winners were named in a press release from a Pine Hill spokeswoman.


“These four outstanding young ladies of Pine Hill were among those crowned: Jer’Leah Davis, Madison Bagby, Kaileigh Sanders and Merikal Graves,” according to the spokeswoman.


There were 19 contestants from 22 churches. The judges evaluated the talent division and formal attire presentations in different age categories, according to the spokeswoman.


These queens and others will be representatives at the 84th annual session of the Regular Arkansas Baptist Convention’s Young People’s Convention on June 10-14 at New St. Hurricane Baptist Church, according to the release.
