Chamber reviving Miss Franklin pageant

Winner won’t be eligible for state pageant until 2016.

Most of the residents of Franklin don't realize that there was once a Miss Franklin pageant. Local women would vie for the chance at the title and then they were able to move on to the Miss North Carolina pageant. According to Cindy Cavender of the Franklin Chamber of Commerce, those pageants ended in the early 1990s but now they're about make a comeback.

“We just thought that this would be a really good thing for the Franklin area and the people that live here. Something fun to bring back and take pride in,” she said.
