My name is Angel Rivers I am the 2000-2001 Tamale Fiesta Queen. I am the 17-year-old daughter of Gary and Beverly Rivers of Noble. My sister, Kris, was chosen as the Tamale Fiesta Teen Queen for 2000-2001. My grandparents are Gilbert and Rachel Aaron and Leatha and the late Lee Roy Rivers, all of Zwolle.

I attend Converse High School, where I am active on campus. I am a cheerleader and a member of the dance line, and I also serve as junior class president. I am President of SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) and BETA at Converse High. I was chosen to serve on the Louisiana Students Targeting Alcohol Reduction Statewide (LaSTARS) this past year and I also serve on the Youth Advisory Council for Taking A Stand Conference 2001.

I am enjoying traveling across Louisiana representing my town and its rich heritage. My sponsors are Glen and Laverne Vines.

I’d like to invite you and your family to visit our festival during the 2nd weekend of October.
