Marcia Morrison of Easthampton was selected from among seven contestants Sunday afternoon, as the 26th Ms. Massachusetts Senior America.
The annual pageant was held at Holyoke High School, where a standing-room-only crowd of well-wishers filled the auditorium.
Ms. Morrison will now compete for the title of Ms. Senior America this fall.
The contestants are each over the age of 60. They are selected for their dignity, maturity and inner beauty.
22News morning anchor Tamara Sacharczyk was proud to be one of the judges for Sunday’s statewide competition.
