New Tom and Becky Announced on National Tom Sawyer Days

Posted:
HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) -

 

The national Tom Sawyer Days also means its time to pick a new Tom and Becky to represent the city for the year.  While there are 5 Toms and 5 Becky's, Nathan Lewton was picked to be the official Tom Sawyer.  One of Lewton's first jobs was to help out in the fence painting contest.  Lewton said this is a honor to be selected and says being the official Tom Sawyer is still sinking in.

"I really honestly felt like I was in a dream.  I mean you're so shocked.  You had a 20 percent chance and you were the one who was picked.  It was really cool," he said. 

Ashlyn Nichols was picked as the official Becky.  The two will be around for the Hannibal festivities over the weekend.
