Locals are keeping their fingers crossed that another Laredo beauty will be named Miss Texas USA. But, in last night’s preliminary competition their recruiter also in the spotlight. Three years in a row, and again the pageant, under the direction of Donald Trump, named Roel Gonzalez as a top recruiter in the state. His Laredo girls have taken three Miss Texas Teen titles, and one Miss Texas title. All of which he says are worked with for a good 6 months before taking the stage. Vying for the crown in today’s pageant is last year’s runner up, Lauren Guzman, and also competing Estefania Flores, Melissa Martinez, and Ana Martinez Tempest.
