It’s common to hear people discuss prospering each new year. Johnson County High School junior DeAnna Greer made this a reality. In the past few weeks alone, Greer was named Miss Tennessee Festivals and earned Appalachian Highlands 20 Under 20’s recognition for her outstanding community service.

“She works so hard for our community and for the state of TN,” said aunt Tonya Townsend. She is always helping others and puts others before herself, but most importantly she keeps God first. I’m very proud of you for everything you do.”

Greer balances high school, hobbies, and work. She is a model for Advantage Modeling, student, cheerleader, gymnast, and lifeguard at the Mountain City Pool. Greer spends her free time volunteering with organizations such as Serving With Style and the Volunteerism Support Platform.

She has donated over 1,000 hours of volunteer work. Despite her achievements, Greer stays humble.

“Thank you so much,” Greer exclaimed to her supporters. “I’m so honored to represent Johnson County High School!”

Pageants may not have a great reputation in modern days, but they offer many benefits. A few benefits include increased communication skills, confidence boosts, improved stress management skills, and even scholarships.

Pageants also award participants for being conscientious and helping others. The Amerifest National Pageant is currently running a charity event to benefit homeless shelters.

Greer will attend the Amerifest National Pageant at the Sevierville Convention Center on July 26-28.

Some of her previous titles include Miss Teen South East Region 2018, Miss Teen Northeast United States 2018, Miss Teen US Novice Supreme 2018, and Miss Teen TN Beauty Supreme 2018.

Good luck DeAnna Greer!
