Kennedy Ann Lintz, an 11-year-old sixth-grade student at Cedar Creek Elementary School in Lee’s Summit, was recently named Miss Missouri Tween.
Participating in her very first pageant, Kennedy was also honored for best smile and placed third in photogenic. Kennedy also took home the 2014 Miss Missouri Personality award.
Kennedy, the daughter of David and Susan Lintz, hopes to one day be a professional ballerina, open her own dance studio and to become Miss America. She has danced for Heart of America Dance Center for nine years and has danced in nine recitals and five major ballet productions and will be performing in the Heart of America Youth Ballet’s “Nutcracker” next month.
