Memories are being shared about pageant winners
Doug Beard's story and photos of the first Miss Lake Cumberland Pageant is bringing thoughts of each of the contestants.
Cynthia Parnell Collier grew up to be President and CEO of Mr. "P" Express, a multi-million-dollar corporation, mom of three daughters and grandmother to four little ones, all in Louisville.
Charmaine Stewart of Columbia went to Henry Clay High School with the winner, the first Miss Lake Cumberland, Brenda Brookshire. She remembers hearing that Brenda passed away at a young age but hasn't been able to find an obituary. Perhaps history writer JIM might be able to search sometime, if anyone can find it, he can.
JIM found all the names in Doug's photo, from left: Cindy Parnell (Jeffersonville), 4th; June Wallace (Somerset), 1st); Brenda Brookshire (Lexington), Miss Lake Cumberland; Hildreth Delene "Dee" Ferguson (Albany), 2nd; and Mary Allison Chesney (Monticello), 3rd.
As we receive more information about other contestants in that first event we will share and link back.
