Hi, my name is Halleyana Sepulvado. I am the 41st annual Zwolle Tamale Fiesta Queen. I am the 18 year old daughter of Scottie and Alasha Sepulvado. I am a 2017 graduate from Many High School, where I was a cheerleader, a class officer, a student council member, and also an FCA member. I was co-captain for the cheerleading squad my junior and senior year and was also an All-American cheerleader those two years as well. Before my senior year started I attended Louisiana Girls State, where I learned how the state and local government works. I graduated high school with Summa Cum Laude and I also received an academic letterman for maintaining a 4.0 GPA throughout high school. I attend St. Joseph’s Catholic Church where I am a lector.
I will attend Northwestern State University in the fall to major in Nursing to become a Nurse Anesthetist. I already have 26 hours of college credits from dual enrollment with Northwestern while in high school. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family.  I am honored to be your 41st Tamale Fiesta Queen and I’d like to invite you to our 42nd annual Tamale Fiesta, Oct. 12-14, 2017.


My name is Emmalee Suzanne Lewing, and I am the 40th Annual Zwolle Tamale Fiesta Queen. I am the 17 year old daughter of Keith and Cindy Lewing. My paternal grandparents are Milton Lewing of Many, Louisiana and Linda Morris of La Porte, Texas. My maternal grandparents are Rebecca Procell and the late Gerald Procell of Zwolle. My godparents are Scott and Renay Procell of Zwolle. I have an older sister, Kaitlin, who attends Northwestern State University and is majoring in Biology, and a younger sister, Raeghan, who is a sophomore at Ebarb High School.

I am a senior at Ebarb High School where I am very active in basketball, softball and cheerleading. I am also involved in many clubs and organizations such as: Family Career and Community Leaders of America, Future Business Leaders of America, 4-H, and BETA.

After I graduate, I plan to attend Northwestern State University and major in early childhood education with aspiration of becoming a preschool teacher.

I am a member of St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Ebarb, Louisiana. In the past I have served as an alter server and I currently serve as a Eucharistic minister.

My hobbies include shopping, spending time with my family and friends, reading, playing fetch with my dog, Rebel, and competing in sporting events.

I would like to thank my parents for sponsoring me in the pageant and also everyone else that helped me prepare for this adventure. I am proud to be representing the Tamale Fiesta and the town of Zwolle as the 40th Annual Miss Zwolle Tamale Fiesta Queen.

I proudly invite you to join me in my home town Zwolle, Louisiana the second weekend in October for a sizzling good time!
