With poise and pep, Alexis Feran was named a state finalist for the junior pre-teen age division in the National American Miss Wisconsin Pageant. Her outgoing attitude, sweet demeanor and many talents got her an invitation to participate in this Miss Wisconsin pageant. Alexis is the daughter of Michael Feran and Brittany  Myers, both from Prairie du Chien.

At 8 years old, Alexis will travel to Wisconsin Dells, Aug. 20 and 21, for the state finalist round of the pageant. Already, Alexis completed interviews and volunteered to assist in a presentation in front of the entire pageant group. If Alexis wins the title of National American Miss 2015 Junior Pre-Teen of Wisconsin, she will travel to Hollywood, Calif. and partake in the national level competition.

“She was very outgoing, not like the other contestants there,” said Reni Feran, Alexis’ step-mother.
