Miss Troup Outstanding Teen and Mini Pearls


Jessica Roberts, Miss Troup County’s Outstanding Teen, was recently a guest of Berta’s Mini Pearls, a mentoring program for students in grades K-2. A 10th grader st Columbus’ Fine Arts High School, Jessica performed a classical ballet en pointe to music from The Black Panther. She showed the girls how to walk and hold up their shoulders, and talked to them about bringing a burst of light into the room when they walked in. Following the performance, the Mini Pearls enjoyed a tea party in the school's dining room. And they all got to try on Jessica’s crown!
