Showcasing the diversity and talent of Baylor University's ProSales students, Kelsey Mann participated in the Miss Waco Pageant earlier this month at the Midway Performing Arts Center.

Mann, a junior ProSales student from San Antonio, TX, joined the pageant community three years ago on a whim. Since then, she's had fun interacting with other contestants and building everlasting friendships.

In the process, she got to meet Holly Tucker, a finalist from The Voice and a current Baylor student. "Holly Tucker is an inspiration. She's living out her dream and serving The Lord every step of the way," said Mann.

Competing in pageants means a tremendous amount to Mann. "For me, getting to compete in pageants is a way to further my outreach for my platform Speak Up: Promoting a Confident Lifestyle. It also helps me maintain a healthy lifestyle," said Mann. "I am very involved throughout the Waco Community and I love that we have a title (i.e. Miss Waco). Waco is a community where many kids need a good role model and this pageant is a great platform to show people what Waco has to offer."

Mann is eager to compete again next year. She's excited about the preparation and getting a good arm workout by teasing her hair to "Texas Standards."
