The Miss Clovis Scholarship Association named its Miss Clovis and Miss Clovis Outstanding Teen for 2018 during a March 11 ceremony at Notre Dame Hall.

During the presentation, Lauren Herring, 22 year-old senior at Fresno State, was was crowned Miss Clovis while Allee Her, a 16-year-old Clovis High student, earned the title of Miss Clovis Outstanding Teen.

Herring is a civil engineering major at Fresno State. Following her undergrad work, she plans to pursue a masters degree to become a water resource engineer. Her platform shines a light on women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Her, whose career goal is to become a pediatrician, holds a 4.0 GPA while running cross country, competing in martial arts and playing classical violin.

Along with the title, each winner received a scholarship. As Miss Clovis, Herring was awarded a $2,000 scholarship sponsored by Clovis Community Foundation. Her, on the other hand, was awarded $1,100 by the Miss Clovis scholarship organization.

They will both have the opportunity to earn over $10,000 in scholarships should they win the title of Miss California and Miss California’s Outstanding Teen this June at William Saroyan Theatre in Fresno.
