Willard High School junior Mackenzie Newman received an early birthday surprise on Tuesday.

But while birthday celebrants usually extinguish flames by blowing out candles, Newman will be asked to fan the flames of knowledge, honor and integrity while representing Willard Fire & Rescue as Miss Flame 2012.

Newman, whose birthday is Oct. 22, 1995, earned that honor Tuesday after participating in the last phase of competition against four of her classmates. A story about Newman was published on the front page of Wednesday's Reflector.
