FAIRBANKS — A West Valley High School junior is in Washington, D.C., this week competing in the Miss Teen United States pageant.
Sydneylynn Graessle, 16, represents the state of Alaska in her role as Miss Teen Alaska United States 2014.
“It’s very exciting,” said her mother Lisa Gentry. “She’s a pretty organized young lady, so she makes lists every day of what she needs to accomplish and what things she still needs to get, and who she needs to talk to.”
“She gets it all done,” Gentry said.
