Topeka teen takes 4th in Miss Teen USA

 Miss Teen USA
Taylor Clark, a soon-to-be senior at Washburn Rural High School, was named the third runner-up in Saturday night's Miss Teen USA pageant in Nassau, Bahamas.

"She did wonderful," said her father, Bruce Clark, of Topeka, who was headed home from the event Sunday.

Clark, 17, was crowned Miss Teen Kansas in December, Bruce Clark said.

The honor-roll student is captain of the WRHS Dancin' Blues dance team and is a varsity track athlete. She was selected as part of the All-City track and field team.

Clark, who was born and raised in Topeka, recently won the 2011-2012 Tremaine Dance Dancers of the Year Senior Female award. The 30th anniversary Tremaine 2011 National Finals took place July 7-11 in Orlando, Fla.

Clark is a senior dancer at the Dance Factory, where she also teaches.

As a 12-year-old seventh-grader at Washburn Rural Middle School, Taylor Clark was named the National American Miss Preteen Queen.

Bruce Clark said his daughter competed in a formal evening dress round and a swimsuit round. She also had a personal interview with judges and took part in a question-and-answer session with the final five.

Taylor Clark is the daughter of Bruce and Cindy Clark. She has a 20-year-old brother, Brandon. All three attended the pageant in the Bahamas.
