Alexandria Necker of DeWitt was crowned Miss Clinton County 2011 at the Miss Clinton County Scholarship Pageant Saturday July 23, at Ashford University's Durgin Center.

More than 400 people cheered on the 16 contestants who competed for the titles of Miss Clinton County 2011, Junior Miss Clinton County, Li'l Miss Clinton County and Miss Clinton County's Outstanding Teen.

This year marked the 50th anniversary of the program. Eighteen former Miss Clinton Counties were present, serving as guest emcees and performers.

Alexandria is the 17-year-old daughter of Dave and Amy Necker of DeWitt. Her platform is "Embrace Diversity and Band Against Bullying." She performed a show twirl for her talent.

The 2011 Junior Miss Clinton County titleholder is Maddie Peterson, the 10-year old daughter of Dan and Nicole Peterson of DeWitt. Maddie performed a tap dance for the talent competition.

Eight-year-old Alexis Krogmann, daughter of Josh and Cindy Krogmann of Clinton, was crowned Li'l Miss Clinton County 2011. Alexis performed a dance to "Stuck Like Glue" by Sugarland.

Miss Clinton County's Outstanding Teen crown was awarded to Savannah Necker, who wowed the crowd with a show twirl. Savannah is the 14-year-old daughter of Dave and Amy Necker. Her platform issue is "Let the Message Wait . . . Decide Your Fate," informing others of the dangers of texting while driving. Alexis Krogmann and Alexandria Necker were also honored with the People's Choice awards in their respective categories.

Alexandria also received several special additional scholarships including the Diamond talent award, Kiwanis interview award and the Gateway Travel & Cruise essay award.

The new titleholders will make appearances throughout their year of service and will continue on to the Miss Iowa Pageant next June.
