Miss Wheelersburg - Amanda Salmons
Hello! My name is Amanda Salmons and I am proud to be your Miss Wheelersburg 2022. I am the seventeen-year-old daughter of Ryan and Tammy Salmons of Wheelersburg, Ohio, and the sister of Adam and Maggie Salmons. My activities include varsity Cheerleading, Track, Cross Country, Prom Committee, and Theatre. I am also an A Honor Roll student and volunteer at many events outside of school. I enjoy art and painting and grew up doing a mix of sports and competitive dance. After graduation, I plan to attend college and pursue a career in graphic design.
My platform, “Amanda’s Mission: Be an Advocate,” focuses on siblings being advocates for their brother or sister with special needs. As a sibling of a brother with Autism, I have been given a unique opportunity to understand what it is like to live with a disability. I have also seen my parents and sister’s passionate example of what it means to truly advocate for my brother and our family. Being an advocate does not mean taking on overwhelming responsibility or commitments, but it does mean: maintaining a sense of purpose, enlisting the support of others, helping your sibling develop decision-making abilities, and staying well informed. Through my platform, I hope to help others see the “ability” in disability and inspire families to embrace their role as an advocate.
I am very excited to represent our school and community and would like to thank the student body for giving me this opportunity. I am blessed to be Miss Wheelersburg and I promise to make the Wheelersburg community proud!
