Meleisha is Miss Showgirl

WHEN Meleisha Tennent was nominated by her colleagues eight months ago, she didn’t think she’d be named this year’s Rockhampton Miss Showgirl.

But after many fundraisers for Variety, The Children’s Charity and community involvement, the 24-year-old is very happy with her achievement.

“Even though I was the oldest there and had confidence in myself, I thought that the judges would take on how well the younger girls had progressed and developed throughout the months more than they considered me,” Meleisha said.

“But those girls really did come a long way from when they first entered.”

Now the Rocky girl will go onto Mackay for the Central Queensland Sub Chamber semi finals and from there, go on to the state titles at Brisbane.
