Her pageant platform is “Raising Awareness of the Importance of Physical Activity in Youth.” She is an active young lady and has been involved in sports, including basketball and volleyball.
“Obesity rates have tripled in the last three decades, so it’s definitely something our society has to change. I just want to promote it to kids and show them physical activity doesn’t have to have a negative connotation, it can definitely be something fun for them,” she said.
Lexie is a pageant veteran, having been crowned Wyoming Junior Miss in 2008. Lexie is the first Miss Goshen County to be named Miss Wyoming. She is the second native of Torrington to win the state crown. The first was Miss Wyoming 1953 Elaine Holkenbrink, who went on to become a semi-finalist and preliminary swimsuit competition winner at the Miss America pageant.
