2023 Queen

My name is Cailin Landri Leach, and I am the 47th Annual Miss Zwolle Tamale Fiesta. It is truly a significant honor to have the opportunity to represent this title and fulfill all responsibilities that come with it. I am the nineteen-year-old daughter of Courtney Jones and Micheal Leach. My maternal grandparents are Dennis and Lisa Pilcher. My paternal grandparents are Harlan and Jan Leach. Being the oldest of three siblings has taught me a lot about family, faith, and self-respect. My siblings mean the world to me, I am a very family-oriented person.

In two-thousand twenty-two, I graduated from Pleasant Hill High School. Not only with a high school diploma, but also an Associate’s Degree of General Studies, from Northwestern State University, through the dual-enrollment program. Currently, I am online student at Louisiana State University at Alexandria, pursuing a bachelor’s degree of Healthcare Administration. One day I plan to become a Director of Orthopedics. This became my career choice after I broke my ankle in high school and had what I consider to be one of the best orthopedic teams possible to take care of me. I am beyond thrilled and grateful for this amazing opportunity to represent the fiesta. On the weekend of October 14th, I hope to see everyone at the festival grounds, there truly is fun for the whole family!

There’s no time to siesta, let’s fiesta!
Join me the second full weekend of October, to celebrate the rich Spanish and Indian Heritage in my home parish, at one of the spiciest festivals in our state. Proudly representing the 47th annual Zwolle Tamale Fiesta, I am Cailin Landri Leach. Reminding you that no tamale, is like a Zwolle Tamale. Mucho Gracias!
