Miss Wyoming Teen USA
Miss Wyoming Teen USA 2021
Teryn Thatcher is the 18-year-old daughter of Shelby and Phil Thatcher. She is the second oldest child of seven and was born and raised in Wyoming. It seems as if seven kids wasn’t quite enough as her family also serves as a foster family and often has kiddos in and out of their doors. Teryn says that has been one of the biggest blessings in her life, to have such an opportunity to be selfless and give love to those who are craving it.
While in high school, Teryn competed in three varsity sports: swimming, basketball, and track & field. She received multiple state and conference recognitions and broke a state record. She was also in The National Honors Society and student council, serving as student body president her senior year. Though her high school career ended differently than most due to the COVID-19 pandemic, she had a successful experience at Kemmerer High School. Two of her greatest honors are being selected to be a Daniel’s Scholar and a Utah State University Ambassador as she prepared for her secondary education.
Now Teryn lives part-time in Logan, Utah while attending Utah State University and majoring in Spanish. While in college she has become an avid CrossFitter and loves finding new ways to push herself physically. She received her Wyoming Real Estate Salesperson license in February of 2021 and now works for a local brokerage in Kemmerer. Teryn’s life goal is to become a mom with lots of cute kids and dogs and give them the same Wyoming experiences her parents gave her.
Though this was her first pageant, Teryn is so excited and confident to see what the national pageant has to bring. She has the best people in her corner and knows big things are about to happen for her and her fellow sister queens. She is so humbled that she can wear Wyoming’s name across her chest and her heart this next year and show what Wyoming women are made of.
