Sisters who reign together, rule together
Lily and Meghan Boliek share the stage as honor students, twirlers, and now, beauty queens.
When I was crowned: It gave me a sense of leadership and allowed so many amazing opportunities. I’ve met so many amazing people.
My greatest accomplishment: Becoming an avid volunteer between Bikefest chaos, Rotary service projects and chamber events.
I look up to: My grandfather, or my “Pop.” I’ve never met somebody with more drive, more passion, more confidence and a better work ethic. He truly sets the standard of a go-getter.
Topping my playlist: Anything country.
My future plans include: Earning my degree in architecture and home design. Work for a company and work my way into a leadership team, and ultimately design and construct my own home.
A saying I live by: If you are the smartest one in your circle, you need to find a new circle.
When I was crowned: It meant the world to me. It’s not really about the crown, but for the opportunities that come with it.
My greatest accomplishment: Being able to be an honor student and a competitive baton twirler and still have great relationships with friends and family.
I look up to: My best friend Reese Ponds. Everything she does inspires me to better myself. She is so kind and hard-working and one of the best girls I know.
Topping my playlist: Taylor Swift’s new album “Midnights.”
My future plans include: I will graduate high school and attend college to pursue a career in orthodontics. Then eventually, I’d like to start a family and live out my dream of becoming a mom.
A saying I live by: Treat others how you want to be treated.
