Southeast Thresher’s Queen Pageant


Southeast Threshers Queen

Since 1984, the Southeast Threshers Queen Pageant has provided young women the opportunity to represent the Denton FarmPark and the Southeast Old Threshers Reunion at various events throughout North Carolina. The pageant is held on the first night of the Southeast Old Threshers Reunion to allow the new Queen to reign over the week’s festivities.

Through the help of generous community sponsors, the Southeast Threshers Queen Pageant also provides a scholarship to the new Queen to continue her post-secondary education. In addition, the pageant offers each contestant an opportunity to build confidence, improve communication skills, and form lifelong friendships. All contestants must meet the qualifications set forth by the Southeast Threshers Queen Scholarship Committee.

Congratulations to Savannah Russell for being crowned Southeast Old Thresher’s Queen and will represent the Denton FarmPark and the Southeast Old Thresher’s Reunion to the fullest extent. Let us welcome our 40th Southeast Thresher’s Queen.
