An investigative story by Kelsey Beach and Grant Reed revealed the lack of fairness in a local holiday pageant for teens.
Back Story: Hillcrest counselors were the first to question the “Miss Merrie Christmas” pageant’s practices to HTV. Beach and Grant took it from there.
The Focus Statement: “North side girls left out”
Trivia: In the eight years since the story ran on HTV, there has still not been a winner from Hillcrest.
