Hillis to participate in Miss Oklahoma
On Tuesday, Tevis Hillis will take to the stage in Tulsa to represent Lawton in the Miss Oklahoma Pageant. Hillis is the winner of Miss Lawton 2019, and she is looking forward to taking her crown to Tulsa in pursuit of the title of Miss Oklahoma where she hopes to shine a light on Lawton.
“I think that there is such a negative stereotype about being from Lawton…but we live in such a great place,” Hillis said.
The 21-year-old Hillis grew up in Lawton, graduated from Lawton High School and won Miss Lawton’s Outstanding Teen before going on to participate in the Miss Lawton Pageant in 2018—where she lost.
