Miss Arlington USA 2018


Arlington, TX – May 2018 – Ms. Rachel Renee Hornbuckle, who was awarded the Miss Arlington USA 2018 title this month, is thrilled to represent Arlington, Texas [The American Dream City] at the MISS TEXAS USA® pageant Friday, August 31-Sunday, September 2, 2018 in Houston, TX at the Hilton Houston Post Oak Hotel. This pageant has a successful track record of nine Miss USA’s. In addition, it produced Texas’s first Miss Universe in 1995.

“I’m extremely thankful to represent Arlington as Miss Arlington USA 2018 and hopefully our entire state soon,” says Ms. Hornbuckle. “I believe this recognition will further improve the value of education and empowerment for our youth in pursuing their dreams and achieving their goals.”

Ms. Hornbuckle has already seen two of her biggest academic goals come true; as she recently earned a Law Degree from the University of Alabama after completing her Bachelor’s in Marketing from the University of Arkansas Pine Bluff. Since completing her higher education, she continues to apply the same dose of resilience, tenacity and drive toward achieving each of her goals of becoming a prominent voice for those who are disenfranchised and being crowned as MISS TEXAS USA® 2019 later this year.

Ms. Hornbuckle wowed the pageant world in the 2017 MISS TEXAS USA® PAGEANT by placing in the top 15 out of 98 contestants while representing the City of Colleyville, Texas. It is certain that she will remain a top contender for the crown at the September pageant as she represents the City of Arlington.

“I know that my continued faith, hard work and dedication toward achieving my goals will allow me to have the best chance at becoming the best version of myself for my family, state, and many others who I will have the privilege of helping as a lawyer” says Ms. Hornbuckle.
