A Basehor woman was the second runner-up earlier this month at the Mrs. Kansas Pageant.

Katia Figueroa Acevedo, who at an earlier pageant was named Mrs. Leavenworth County, also received an award for the highest-scoring interview and was voted Mrs. Congeniality at the pageant, which was held Sept. 3 in Branson, Mo.

Acevedo has been married for 14 years and has three children. As Mrs. Leavenworth County, she supported the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

The Mrs. Kansas event is a preliminary to the Mrs. America Pageant in the spring.
