Little Miss Lumbee 
BrynLynn Rose Odom

Brynlynn Rose Odom, daughter of Toni Lynn and Keith Odom of Bennettsville, South Carolina, is the granddaughter of Debra Lowry VanHorn and great-granddaughter of Crissie Cummings Lowry and Brown Lowry of Pembroke, NC. Taught about her Lumbee heritage from an early age, Rose is proud of her ancestry and the Lumbee people. She excelled in her school work at Scotland Christian Academy and will attend Marlboro Academy in the fall. Rose enjoys church, dance class, and tumble practice. She is a competitive dancer at Elevate Dance Academy, having won numerous awards, including being a two-time Platinum National Dance Competition solo battle champion. When not busy with school and dance, Rose cheers on her brother, Brantlee, and his travel baseball team, the Devil Dawgs. As the 2024 Little Miss Lumbee Ambassador, Rose aims to educate people outside of North Carolina about the Lumbee tribe and be a voice for her people. She hopes to bring awareness to people in her home state of South Carolina that the Lumbee tribe exists and deserves then full benefits of recognition.
