#MissMS2017 Holly Harrington


Also be on the lookout for Miss Dixie 2017 Holly Harrington at Saturday’s Miss Mississippi Scholarship Pageant.

Harrington is the great-granddaughter of legendary Coach Sam Henderson who worked at Cumberland High School for many years. She is the granddaughter of Webster County natives, Lou Henderson Harrington and Scott Harrington, both Cumberland High School graduates and Mantee residents.

Lou Harrington was a teacher for several years at Cumberland High School and Scott Harrington was a long time District 5 Supervisor.

Holly’s dad, Shane, was a Cumberland High School athletic standout who went on to play baseball for Delta State University.

I did not know of Holly’s Webster County connections until she was already in Vicksburg for the 2017 Miss Mississippi Pageant. Once they are there, the contestants are not allowed to have their phones. But I have included all of Holly’s profile information from the Miss Mississippi website to help us get to know her a little better.
