Miss Destin makes her debut
Thursday night at the Inn on Destin Harbor was Miss Destin Kira Moraca’s debut appearance ahead of the 66th Annual Destin Fishing Rodeo.
Moraca, who is the daughter of Reid and Linda Phillips, will spend the month of October at the docks behind AJ’s Seafood and Oyster Bar posing with the catches and anglers as fish come to the scales. She will also make other appearances at events throughout the city.
The 16-year-old collegiate high school student was awarded a $5,000 scholarship, as part of taking the Miss Destin title, to be applied to her college of choice this fall and she hopes to pursue Zoology at the University of Florida.
