She attends Abeka Academy, where she is on the honor roll. She is involved in numerous extracurricular activities, including Hardin 4H and the 4H Horse Project.

She attends Hardin Baptist Church, where she demonstrates her strong faith and participates in the youth group and music programs. She is also a member of the youth group at Old River Baptist Church.

Pamela Heflin, 18, is the daughter of Robert and Angel Heflin Jr. of Tarkington. She is a senior at Tarkington High School, where she has earned a certification in floral design.
