A Miss Bethany contest was held as part of Bethany Celebration recently. Moranda Matheson was crowned Miss Bethany. Moranda’s parents are Chad and Amber Matheson of Bethany, and her grandparents are Myrna and Jim Scritchfield of Bakersfield, California and Joe and Joan Matheson of Sullivan.
She attended tech school her junior year, while also maintaining straight As at Okaw Valley High School. Matheson earned her CNA, working the summer to earn money for college. She did not enter the contest for the crown but rather was hoping for the scholarship money to help offset expenses to become a pediatrician oncologist. She will be a senior at Okaw Valley High School this fall.
