Ms. Wheelchair Kansas 2019 Selected at 15th Annual Crowning Ceremony

The 2019 Ms. Wheelchair Kansas was recently crowned during a weekend ceremony held March 3, 2019, at the DoubleTree Hotel in Lawrence. Andrea Romero received her crown after participating in four judging sessions, as well as many other activities, throughout the three-day event held March 1-3. The weekend concluded with a formal crowning, where Andrea was chosen as the new titleholder and fellow contestant Kynedi Weaver, of Olathe, was chosen as the runner-up.

The crowning ceremony was attended by more than 70 family, friends, and community members. The event consisted of platform speeches by the two contestants, as well as two on-stage questions. The audience enjoyed a slide show of memories from the weekend; some entertainment from magician Curtis Sneden; crowning of nearby state independent delegate, Ms. Wheelchair Nebraska, Aubrey Freeze; and a farewell from the 2018 MWKS titleholder, Allison Merriam of Kansas City, and Little Miss titleholder, Ariana Hutchinson of Topeka.
