Farragut student named ‘Knoxville’s Junior Miss’


Katrina Quist of Farragut won the title of Knoxville’s Junior Miss 2008 Saturday, June 2.

She received a $600 college scholarship and the chance to compete for Tennessee’s Junior Miss. It was the first Junior Miss Pageant in 20 years for Knoxville, and was produced by Kim Norton and many volunteers.

Katrina will travel to Chattanooga July 14 through July 21, and will compete with a total of 29 contestants for the title of Tennessee’s Junior Miss. Contestants are judged on physical fitness, talent, self-expression (evening gown), scholastic and an interview with the judges.

The winner of Tennessee’s Junior Miss will receive a $5,000 college scholarship and will compete in America’s Junior Miss 2008, next June in Mobile, Ala. America’s Junior Miss is the oldest college scholarship program in the United States, and contestants are rising senior high school students.

Katrina is the daughter of Knoxville attorney Brian Quist and Molly Quist. Molly said two girls were selected to compete in Chattanooga, one as Knoxville’s Junior Miss and one as Knox County’s Junior Miss. Though Katrina lives in Farragut, the choice to crown her as Knoxville’s Junior Miss was “without rhyme or reason,” Molly said. Ashton Doane of Powell was selected as Knox County’s Junior Miss.

Katrina has two brothers, Andy, 14, and Alex, 8, and is a rising senior at Farragut High School. She is an accomplished dancer, having grown up at her mother’s dance studio, The Dance Centre of Knoxville. She is a soloist for Oak Ridge Civic Ballet and a member of the nationally ranked Farragut Varsity Dance Team. She was won many awards for her dancing, both at regional and national competitions. For her talent performance, she will dance a ballet/lyrical piece.

Tennessee’s Junior Miss pageant will be at 7 p.m., Friday, July 20 and Saturday, July 21, at the Tivali Theatre, downtown Chattanooga.

Tickets are available and begin at $10.
