CORPUS CHRISTI- It's not your ordinary beauty pageant,
A group of lovely ladies competed Sunday to be named Ms. Coastal Bend in the 19th annual senior pageant.
They presented themselves in front of the judges in evening gown, interviews and of course, the talent program.
For some contestants like Inez Garcia, who is in a wheelchair, they want to inspire others, she had this to say:
"You can be in a wheelchair and you're capable of doing something for the community or for yourself, and that's what I've been doing.
So, I enjoyed doing it tremendously, you know, volunteering and so I recommend that to anyone that's in a wheelchair, or any other type of disability."
Congratulations to Rosie Garcia who was crowned Ms.Coastal Bend senior, she will move on to compete for the state title later this year.
Stella Hatch, finished as first runner-up.
