Contestants are set to take the stage Saturday night at the Palace Theatre, vying for the title of Ms. Senior Tennessee. To honor the contestants and recognize Crossville as the host city for the event, Mayor James Mayberry proclaimed April as Ms. Senior Tennessee Month. The proclamation recognized the local volunteers and others who help make the event possible, with special recognition for Vancieneta Wisdom, who passed away last year but had been active with the pageant for many years.
