Rachel Lanette Breland always knew she would get another opportunity to become Miss Central Alabama.

The Dallas County High School senior was named the 2019 Central Alabama Fair Queen on Saturday at the Fairgrounds.

A runner up last year, Breland said she was motivated to win the prestigious crown. The title became official when Aris Stevens, last year’s Miss Central Alabama, crowned Breland.

“I was excited to enter after how well I did last year,” Breland said. “I was determined to come back and try to win again.”

Breland, who turns 18 on Nov. 12, was Junior Miss at the 2017 Central Alabama pageant.

After graduating from Dallas County next spring, Breland plans to attend Wallace Community College-Selma and major in nursing.
