I would like to recognize Miss Rami Flores -- who was initially named and crowned Miss Karnes County during the scholarship pageant held on February 15, 2014, which was sponsored by the Kenedy Rotary Club. Even though the “title” is no longer there, I would like to say thank you, Rami, for representing our town of Runge and its Hispanic community at the annual pageant. You are a lovely young lady with great class. Keep your head held high. I admire your poise in handling the situation and wish you all the best in your endeavors. Many have voiced concerns on how these circumstances might impact the integrity of future pageants.
