Festival Princess

Brooke McIntyre, a junior from Coastal Christian High School, was crowned the 2020 North Carolina Azalea Festival Princess during the annual North Carolina Azalea Festival Scholarship Pageant on Saturday, March 7th. Brooke is the daughter of Daniel and Theresa McIntyre. She and her court were selected from among 17 contestants representing 8 area high schools. The court members include the following: 1st Runner-Up from Isaac Bear Early College, Julia Narvaez Munguia, 2nd Runner-Up, from Ashley High School, Dargan Thompson, 3rd Runner-Up, from John T. Hoggard High School, Bailey Barefoot, and 4th Runner-Up, also from Coastal Christian High School, Stevie Henderson.

At Coastal Christian High School, Brooke received the Coach’s Award in track and placed All-State, All-Conference. She is involved in Beta Club, a competitive cheer team, and several community service groups. Recently, she went on a mission trip in Costa Rica. She currently models for NYMMG and Marilyn’s in Greensboro which offers her the ability to travel extensively. What is most important to her is to follow where Christ leads, stay true to herself, and not be afraid to step out of her box and follow her dreams. She plans on going to college to pursue sports management and communications, spending a semester studying abroad, and continue modeling as much as she can.
