Remembering Christina

In the audience at the Junior Miss Program last Saturday night in the Post Falls High School arena was proud grandmother, Bev Finney. Her 8-year-old granddaughter, Courtney Finney, was one of a couple dozen little misses providing special entertainment during the program. Bev's memories of a night just like that in years past brought both a smile and a tinge of sadness. Christina Finney was named Post Falls Junior Miss in 1994, representing her community in parades and at the Idaho Junior Miss Program. She had a stellar senior year, enjoying success as a cross country athlete. On June 1, 1995 ... just days after her 18th birthday and before graduation, Christina died in a car accident just a few blocks from the high school on a sunny afternoon.
On Saturday when Hailey Smith was chosen 2010 Post Falls Junior Miss, Bev was reminded of her sweet daughter Christina. Hailey is also a cross country runner, who in an ironic twist, received the Christina Finney Spirit Award in the sport this year.
