Forestburg teen seeking National America Miss title

This past summer, Forestburg High School freshman student Lindsey Johnston began receiving letters from the National American Miss pageant system.

“They were persistent,” Johnston said. “They liked me, so I decided to try it. I had never done a pageant before. It was my first one, and it went great.”

Johnston impressed judges to the point where she was named Texas State Ambassador and she’s currently traveling to the NAM national competition in Anaheim, Ca.

The community of Forestburg had a send-off dinner for Johnston this past Sunday.
