Miss Destin 2017 Rachel McMullen
Rachel is the 17 year-old daughter of Debra and Ed McMullen. She is a Junior at Fort Walton Beach High School.
Rachel values the Destin community and the events it holds. She feels that being able to actively participate in events will give her the chance to share all the love, excitement and respect she has for Destin and how it has played a huge role in her childhood, shaping her into the young lady she is today.
Miss Destin’s primary function is to represent the Destin Fishing Rodeo at weigh-ins every day during the month of October.
Destin resident high-school girls between the ages of 16 and 19 vie for the title of Miss Destin, which among other things, provides at least a $2,500 academic scholarship. Additional scholarship moneys are awarded to the 1st and 2nd runners-up.
