Let’s hear it for beautiful, accomplished Emily Farrington, a sixth grader at Marine Park Junior High School selected to compete in the 2014 Miss Pre Teen New York Pageant on Nov. 16 at Bishop Loughlin High School.
Standing O is sending out positive vibes that our pal Emily — a black belt in karate — kicks the competition and wins the coveted sash.
Emily is already a star for proud mom Kim.
“She is very involved in singing and dancing and has appeared in dance recitals, vocal concerts and was the lead in a school production of ‘Bye, Bye Birdie,’ ” she said.
Emily’s goal is to have fun, gain experience. and make new friends.
“Of course I want to win, but if I don’t I will try again next year,” she told Standing O. That’s the spirit.
As winner, Emily would represent New York in the national competition in Orlando, Fla.
No matter what the outcome, Emily has our vote, and can add a Standing O to her list of accolades.
