Dominion High School junior Caroline Ehler will compete in the Miss Virginia’s Outstanding Teen pageant in Roanoke on Saturday.
Caroline was crowned Miss Tyson’s Outstanding Teen in March and will take part in the next level of the competition this week to win the title of Miss Virginia’s Outstanding Teen, a division of the Miss America Scholarship Pageant.
Caroline has a passion for math and wants to be a computer engineer. She is a member of the National and French honor societies, serves Dominion’s vice president as well as class president, and has been a varsity cheerleader for three years.
Her pageant platform is “Cheering Girls on to STEM.” Her goal is to get young children excited about math and science and for girls to know that they can be a cheerleader and love math and science. Caroline has spoken locally to elementary school children as well as performed with the Science Cheerleaders in Washington, DC, at the USA Science and Engineering Festival.
The pageant includes a talent competition in which Caroline will play classical piano. She won first place for her talent in the Miss Northern Virginia’s Scholarship Pageant. Follow Caroline’s journey on Instagram @MissTysonsOT2016.
