Meagan Lee, a senior English major from Delhi, and the daughter of Gregory Lee of Delhi and Angela Scriber of Rayville, has been crowned Miss Louisiana Tech 2014. 

She is a 2010 graduate of Riverfield Academy.  Lee is a fourth-year member of the Louisiana Tech Regal Blues dance team, Sigma Kappa Beta Epsilon sorority for four years, and the coach of the Blue Angels dance team at Choudrant High School for her third year.  

Lee, who plans to pursue a master’s in education after she graduates, said she is excited about serving her university.

“I’ve waited so long to have the opportunity to represent the university with the Miss Tech title that I don’t want to waste a second of my year,” Lee said. “Of course, I’ll also begin preparation for Miss Louisiana in June. I’ve competed there three times before.”

Being named Miss Louisiana Tech, Lee said, was an incredible honor.

“It’s hard to describe to outsiders the feeling of being one of the last two women standing on stage in those final moments,” she said. “Being first runner up to Julianne last year, I had to experience it twice now. But once that crown was placed on my head it was the biggest wave of pride, honor and relief rushing over me. Pride in myself for the hard work I had put into achieving my goals, honor in having the opportunity to represent the university I love so much and relief that everything had paid off.”

Lee also received the talent award for the pageant by performing a contemporary dance to “Hallelujah” by Brandi Carlile.  Lee has studied dance since the age of 3, including a member of the Twin City Ballet Dance Company for seven years and got her humble beginnings in studio dance with Teresa Scurria and Brandy Parker, both of Delhi.

Miss Louisiana Tech 2014 receives three full quarters of tuition, in addition to a wardrobe allowance as part of her prize package.  

She will represent her university for the next year and also compete for the coveted title of Miss Louisiana this June 2014.
