Kyla Malone will have the honour of being crowned Miss Pitt Meadows at this year’s opening ceremonies.
The Grade 6 student at Pitt Meadows elementary is excited for the chance to represent her community of Pitt Meadows.
“I’m very excited for this opportunity,” said the young student. “I’m honoured that I was chosen out of all the students.”
