As a sponsor of the Miss Utah Pageant, Beaches Tanning Center is a proud supporter of all the exemplary women who compete for the honorable title of Miss Utah. This year, we had the fortunate opportunity to have one of our own employees win.

JessiKate Riley, a senior at Brigham Young University and former employee at South Orem Beaches Tanning Center, won the prestigious title of Miss Utah 2017. As Miss Panoramaland, Riley competed at the Capital Theatre in Salt Lake City and was awarded a $10,000 scholarship and the honor of representing Utah at the Miss America pageant. As a violin performance major at BYU, Riley used her exceptional skills and outshined the competition. During the 3-day competition, Riley received the preliminary talent award and received the Glenn Harmon Instrumental Music Award.

As Miss Utah, Riley will serve as a state ambassador for the Children’s Miracle Network and use this opportunity to speak to audiences throughout Utah about her “Find ValYou Within” platform.

As a customer favorite and one of the most hard-working employee we have ever had, we will miss you. We wish you all the best. Good luck at The Miss America Pageant on Sunday, Sept. 10, 2017, in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
