Midland - A Midland family has a reason to celebrate tonight.
Twenty-year-old Alyssa Adair competed in the Miss Texas USA pageant this weekend and took home the Miss Congeniality title.
Adair says although she didn't win the big crown, getting to compete is a huge accomplishment alone.
Almost 10 years ago, Adair was involved in an accident that almost disabled her. Since then she's learned to walk, talk and write again. She was named Midland's Miracle Child in 2003.
Adair brought her own flair to the competition this weekend. Several events require wearing high heels, which she says she can’t wear. Instead, Adair wore a pair of silver cowboy boots.
Her goal is to become an inspirational speaker. After this weekend, she’s well on her way to being just that.
Congratulations to Alyssa from all of us at CBS 7.
