First runner up was Jessica Noack, 16, a junior at Davison High School, and second runner up was Carsyn Bruns, 16, also a junior at DHS.

Brianna is the daughter of Brian and Tina Roseberry, who was Miss Davison 1992.

Following the pageant, Brianna and her court greeted friends and family in the high school gym.

"It's unbelievable!" she said, moments after winning the crown. "I wasn't expecting to win. Everyone was so exceptional!"

Brianna was chosen from seven young women who took part in the pageant, which marked 80 years with a look back at the history of the event once known as Davison Homecoming Queen. The others who participated were Raea Miller, Savannah Joy Varela, Kelsey Marie Strader and Madeline Sheroski.

Morning Show on Cars 108 radio; Kim Dinger of Kim Rose Fashions in Grand Blanc; Elizabeth Endicott, a member of the 1999 Miss Davison Court; Stephen Martin of Collective Goods; and Randall Thompson, owner of Integration Strategies.

The night included a number of other milestones for the pageant. Emcee Michael J. Thorpe announced this was his 35th hosting the pageant and Holly Halabicky, owner of Academy de la Danse, was also recognized for 35 years of choreographing the pageant.

Pageant Co-Director Lori (Button) Tallman Kendrick, Miss Davison 1981, said this was also her 35th year with the pageant and noted the significance of Brianna’s win.

“I’m very proud to be following in her footsteps,” said Brianna of becoming Miss Davison 26 years after her mother.

The pageant also gave stage time to the little girls who served as Miss Davison Princesses, a relatively new addition to the event. The girls were escorted on stage by several of the candidates and last year’s Miss Davison, Devyn Omron, and her court, Avery Snyder and Electra Hug.

The princesses were: Gabriella Adams, Lydia Grace Alcodray, August Amon, Lullyona Monae Atwell, Erin Evans, Kylee Gibby, Maddyson Glasstetter, Peyton Greer, Gabby Harchick, Emma Rene’ MacDonald and Aubrey Raikes.
