TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

Not one, but two East Texans were crowned this weekend at the Miss Texas competitions. 23-year-old Madison Fuller is Miss Texas 2018 and 17-year-old London Hibbs is Miss Texas Outstanding Teen 2018. 

Both ladies say their new titles are an honor. London grew up in Tyler and served as Miss Tyler Outstanding Teen in 2017. Madison recently moved to Tyler and is a kindergarten teacher at Jack Elementary School. 

"Well I love East Texas and I consider my hometown of Fairfield to be East Texas as well but the support from a small town community like Tyler, there's nothing like it," Fuller says. 

London completely agrees saying the support she receives in East Texas motivates her to keep going. 

"I'm proud to call myself a small town girl and I'm super excited to hopefully bring another crown home to Tyler soon," she says. 

Madison and London say the competitions will help them further their education. 

"Well, the Miss America organization is actually the leading provider of scholarships to young women and so through this organization last year I did not even walk away with a crown but I did walk away with almost $5,000 in scholarships," Hibbs says. 

The newly crowned winners say they hope to inspire women in their community to continue to pursue their dreams. 

As for what's next for both ladies, Madison will now go on to compete for Miss America and London will compete for Miss America Outstanding Teen.
