“It is my hope to be able to start to change the tone of the conversation surrounding adoption and how society views those that have been adopted,” she wrote in her platform statement. “Currently I am addressing this issue by having open and honest conversations with those in my communities about adoption and how being adopted has impacted my life.”

Leah has served as a team captain for the Letha Fulton School of Dance and has also served as a youth group assistant at her church, Lakeside Church.

“I have grown up in a family that has instilled within me a strong work ethic and a servant’s heart,” she stated. “My parents have always encouraged my passion for helping others. I believe that it is my passion along with my parents’ support that has allowed my dream of serving others to grow into what it is today.”

Leah competed along with five other candidates. She follows Shelby Soberalski who served as 2016 Miss Ludington Area. First runner up was Abbie Finner of Ludington and second runner up was Aubry Healy of Ludington. Other competitors included Annie DeVoe of Onekama, Madi Shank of Ludington, and Marissa Hansen of Scottville.
