Miss Faulkner State 2014

On March 20, Faulkner State Community College crowned Brooklynn Paige Lynch of Creola, Ala. as its 2014 Miss Faulkner State.

Lynch is the daughter of Clint and Wendy Lynch.  She is pursuing a career in dental assisting.  Lynch has already made a distinct impression during her first year at Faulkner State as a Sun Chief Cheerleader while still maintaining a 4.0 GPA.

Lynch will serve her sophomore year as Miss Faulkner State.

“Brooklyn is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. She is smart, kind and beautiful and will make an excellent role model for current and prospective students. Brooklyn personifies the term “student athlete”. She excels in her academics, is well liked by her peers and instructors, is a strong athlete and has great school spirit.”
