EPHRAIM—Madison Worthington turned over the title of Miss Ephraim to Clarissa Knapp on Saturday, May 7 at the Snow College Eccles Center in Ephraim.
Knapp, who introduced herself to the judges that evening with a statement saying that “Everything Happens for a Reason,” will reign over Scandinavian Days and other events in Ephraim over the next year.
She is the daughter of Doug and Mary Knapp, and she shined on stage as she presented her talent of a vocal theater solo of “I Will Fly” from Little Women. Knapp first saw the play at the age of nine, and that’s when it “lit a flame” inside her.
Knapp’s platform is entitled “Look Up.” It focuses on having gratitude and looking for the good in things. When she was younger, she started a gratitude journal to help her through hard times. She would write down the good things that were happening each day, and whenever she was down, she would look at it.
The first attendant is Harmony Durtschi, second attendant is Joslynn Gordon and third attendant is Karlie Strickland.
Ephraim City manager Shaun Kjar started out the evening by stating how he loved that one time a year, young ladies from Ephraim get to participate in this incredible opportunity to help each of them grow personally and share their beauty and talent with the community.
