At the Haleyville High School Prom this year, just after the winner of Miss Havala Amelia Townsend had been selected, a life-long friend, Margaret Dale Stewert Pugh informed me about a four generation connection. Her mother Willie Mae Walker Stewart was Miss Haleyville in 1928, (before there was a Miss Havala). Margaret Dale was Miss Havala in 1960. Her daughter, Beth Pugh Townsend was Miss Havala in 1987 and Miss Haleyville in 1989. Her daughter, Amelia Townsend is this year’s Miss Havala. With Mother’s Day this Sunday, congratulations to all mothers for being the beautiful ladies you are. Thanks to Beth for the photos.
