Riley Michele Varner, 15, will be competing in the Little Miss South Carolina pageant in June in Hartsville.

Varner, a native of Greer, is the daughter of Dana Jordan, Greer Idol 2011, and Cris Varner.

Michele holds the title of Young Miss Teen Greenwood County Sweetheart. She attends Hillcrest Middle School where she is an outfielder for the Lady Wildcats softball team. She will be a freshman at Blue Ridge High School in the fall.

“I never dreamed a year ago that I would be competing for the title of Little Miss South Carolina,” Varner said. “This opportunity has changed my life.  I have met so many people on this journey and I love all my sister queens. My best friend, Madison Henderson, who represents Oconee County is competing with me and I am very excited that we can share this journey together.”

Michele’s platform is Children with Disabilities. She also visits nursing homes to visit with the elderly and paint the ladies’ nails. She will be at Relay for Life for Greer in, “My Grandma Dianne’s honor who is a cancer survivor. This entire experience has given me a whole new outlook on life.”

Michele has participated with her father, Sgt. Varner, with Greer’s Cops for Tots.

“My mom is my ‘Glam Fairy’ and responsible for my transformation from softball player to pageant queen and without her none of this would have ever been possible.”
