Road to Miss Arkansas: Miss Ouachita River Kathryn Barfield
Kathryn Barfield is Miss Ouachita River. She is from Little Rock. This is her second trip to the pageant. Last year she made the top 15.
Barfield graduated last year from Ouachita Baptist University and now she's a first year student at UAMS College of Pharmacy.
She says she knew she wanted to be in the medical field in some capacity because many of her family members are in the medical field.
Her platform also goes along well with her chosen profession, which is 'Energizing YOUth: Promoting Healthy Habits in Children and Teen.'
She works to promote healthy eating and getting exercise, which isn't just going to the gym, but also doing fun activities.
Barfield is a flute player and played in the band in high school. For her talent at Miss Arkansas she will play "Shenandoah/Dueling Banjos."
