UCA Student, Montana Wright, receives Courier Tribune "Trailblazer" Award

Uwharrie Charter Academy (UCA) sophomore Montana Wright studies, performs, volunteers and even finds time to express herself creatively through photography in her spare time.
Oh, yes. And she’s the 2019 Miss Randolph County Outstanding Teen.
“I have been competing in that pageant for three years. That was my third time competing,” she said. “It was a dream of mine since I was a little girl to win that pageant and represent my community.
“With being Miss Randolph County’s Outstanding Teen, I will go on to compete in Miss North Carolina’s Outstanding Teen in April, in High Point. Maybe in the future, I will be Miss North Carolina, we’ll see.”
“I’ve loved photography since I was little,” she said.

Wright is also a participant in the LIFT (Student Leadership Information For Tomorrow) program, offered by the Asheboro/Randolph Chamber of Commerce. The seven-month program offers 26 rising sophomores and juniors who reside in Randolph County the opportunity to learn more about the area and gain valuable leadership skills.
The goal of LIFT is to produce leaders who are interested in their community both now and in the future. Wright is part of the Student LIFT Class of 2018-19.
Wright also enjoys spending time with her family, parents Stephen and Rebecka Wright and siblings Cody Wright, Kaz Wright and Victoria Coble.
“I have two half-brothers and a half-sister, who are all older than me, and married, some with kids,” Wright said.
