Miss Lehi 2022, Savana Brown will co-host the competitionalongside Johnny Revill. This year’s theme is Awesome Mix Volume: 2023, a spin on the Guardians of the Galaxy 70s theme because of Brown’s love of 70s music, Chris Pratt and the movies.
Brown will compete as contestant #43 at the Miss Utah competition the week of June 8-10 at the Capitol Theater in Salt Lake City. She has spent the last year serving the city of Lehi with her community service initiative, “This is Me; I Am More Than My Disability – Advocating Inclusion for the Disabled Community.” She has served many hours at elementary schools in Lehi, teaching students about inclusion.
“I have spent several months preparing for the Miss Utah competition. I am full of emotion as the Miss Utah competition will be huge and unlike anything I have ever done before,” said Brown.
“I am excited to share my community service initiative at Miss Utah, and I am ready to share Lehi’s love with the state of Utah.”
Brown has been focused on the state competition and has worked hard to prepare mentally, physically and emotionally.
“There is a dance floor in my basement. I have put on my evening gown, went downstairs and practiced my walk and talent. I have filmed myself to evaluate how I am doing and how I can improve. I have enjoyed preparing and working hard to improve,” said Brown.
She is a student at Utah State University and participates as a cheerleader. Brown is diligent in her studies and committed to representing Lehi professionally. Brown is a 2022 graduate of Skyridge High School.
Brown said, “It has been such a wild year. I have spent hours traveling back and forth from school to Lehi and have had so much fun serving and participating in all the city events.
“I am excited for the Miss Lehi competition and for the contestants. They are all sweet and so talented. They will all do amazing, and it will be a great competition night. The next couple of weeks are bittersweet, and I am sad that my service year is ending. I am sure I will be filled with all the emotions as the end gets closer because that is how I am. I feel it all when it is happening. I am also very excited for whoever will be the new Miss Lehi. Her year of service will be life changing.”
