Barry County native Madison Horner, daughter of Jon and Darla Horner of Cassville, was named Miss Texas County 2018 at the Miss Texas County pageant held over the weekend in Houston. Over 250 attended the show, during which many new titles were awarded in several categories.

Horner, the granddaughter of Kay Skouby Simms, with ties to Houston, was awarded the title in the evening show. In the afternoon showcase, the girls showed their many talents.

The winners will go on to compete in Mexico, Missouri, next June for the state titles. In the interim, the ladies will be out in the community performing community service projects throughout the year.
