Watson is Miss Texas, Laredo Morning Times

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Tara Watson, a 22-year-old senior at Texas Christian University who represented Hurst- Euless-Bedford, has won the Miss Texas Scholarship Pageant.

Watson, who competed against 56 other women for the title, will represent Texas at the Miss America Pageant this fall in Atlantic City, N.J.

“I’ve never been more excited in my whole life,” Watson, who is from Lufkin, said Saturday night after receiving her crown.

Her platform was AIDS awareness and education. She sang the song “I’ve Got a Crush on You” for the talent portion of the competition.
