Mrs. New Mexico takes away experience with pageant

Mrs. New Mexico Noel Hunt of Clovis placed 14th in last week’s Mrs. United States Pageant in Las Vegas, Nev.

Mrs. South Carolina Tammy Johns-Brown took the crown as Mrs. United States 2009.

Hunt said she was two votes away from winning Mrs. Congeniality, but chalked up the experience as a good one.

“God has a plan for everything,” she said.

Hunt said she intends to help others with her Mrs. New Mexico title and will be available for events and fundraisers.
