Miss NOC’s to reign another year due to Miss America Competition cancellation


The Miss America Competition has been canceled for 2020 due to Covid-19 allowing current Miss NOC’s Carli Pendleton and Emily Hall to serve another year as the  current Miss NOC’s.


  Pendleton, a Tonkawa native will be a sophomore at NOC Tonkawa while Hall, an Enid native, will be a sophomore at NOC Enid.


  Hall was named Miss NOC Enid and Pendleton Miss NOC Tonkawa at the Miss NOC Scholarship Competition held Oct. 29, 2019.

  Pendleton and Hall were set to attend the Miss Oklahoma Competition in July but that pageant was canceled due to the cancellation of Miss America.

  Seven current or former NOC students were vying to be named Miss Oklahoma.   In addition to Hall and Pendleton, current NOC student Chandler Brown is Miss Ponca City with former Miss NOC’s Telara Day (Miss Muskogee), Alexis Large (Miss Redbud), Karli Lovelace (Miss Elk City), and Lexi Neahring (Miss Brookside) also in the program.
