As a child, Katie Himes wanted to be a princess.
As parents, Bobby and Cathy Himes made sure Katie was involved in a variety of activities, from karate to gymnastics to cheerleading to pageants.
“It’s what I love to do,” Katie, now 16 years old and a junior at Harrison County High School, said last Monday evening at her home in Cynthiana. “Ever since my very first pageant, it’s been a passion of mine.”
Katie was six when she first competed in the Little Miss Harrison County pageant.
