Caroline Schulte of Woodstock has been crowned Miss Cherokee Rose Outstanding Teen 2014. She is the daughter of Mark and Tami Schulte of Woodstock.

The competition was in October at the Elm Street Cultural Arts Village in Woodstock. Eleven contestants competed for both titles.

Each competed in private interview, swimwear, talent and evening wear.

Cyndi Brooks, a member of the Miss Cherokee Rose board, was the emcee for the event.

“Game Day” was selected as this year’s theme and was evident throughout the festivities. Collegiate banners, pom-pom’s, helmets, and music energized the audience during the competition.

Special guests were Carly Mathis, Miss Georgia 2013, and Kelly Hutchinson, Miss Georgia’s Outstanding Teen 2013. Mathis opened the program with The National Anthem and also sang during the competition.

The judges included Keith Brashier of Birmingham, Ala., Glenda Brunson Young, Miss Georgia 1961, of Atlanta, Susan Kea of Roswell, Kevin McCall and Jared Hembree, both of Greer, S. C. All are affiliated with the Miss America Organization.

In addition to being named Miss Cherokee Rose, Patricia was also winner of the swimsuit and talent award. Her talent was a ballet to “Fuego.”

First runner-up to Ford was Brooke Doss, 19, of Atlanta. She performed a lyrical dance to “I Will Always Love You.”

Second runner-up was Heather Burgess, 18, of Woodstock, who performed a tap to “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” for her talent.

Schulte performed a lyrical dance to “How Great Thou Art” as her talent. Her first runner-up in the teen competition was Rachel Carstens, whose talent was a piano performance of “Every Time We Touch.”

Schulte will represent her platform of “Ending Hunger by Encouraging, Empowering, and Educating my Community” and has earned the chance to compete for Miss Georgia’s Outstanding Teen 2014 next June.
