Hallie Inge represented Miss Argyle at the Miss Texas USA pageant in Houston last month.
Although she didn’t win, Inge said she enjoyed the experience and felt it helped her prepare for future endeavors.
“My overall reason for competing was for self improvement. While I do intend on running for office at some point in the future; this experience has set me on the right track for presenting myself and communicating with my audience,” said Inge.
Currently a junior at the University of North Texas majoring in History, Inge has served as an essay judge in the Americas Foundation Essay Contest hosted in local public and private schools, where students studied and wrote about our founding fathers and the principals behind our founding documents, and out of which students received scholarships, letters from the President, and the opportunity to meet key elected representatives, including the Governor of the Sate of Texas.
While at Guyer High School, Inge interned with Texas State Senator Jane Nelson. She served on the Congressional Youth Advisory Council in 2007, followed by an internship with Congressman Michael Burgess. She has held the title of Election Judge for multiple national elections, and twice served as a state convention delegate.
Between college semesters, Inge worked in the office of development for the Leadership Institute in Arlington, VA and in election campaigns across America, but most often between classes she can be found at the Denton Country Club where she manages the tennis pro-shop.
Hallie loves sports and children, and most Sunday mornings can be found working in a 1st through 4th grade Sunday school class.
“I have learned a great deal, had a ton of fun and made lots of neat friends from this experience. It was a pleasure representing Argyle.”
