Their names are Miles and Ellie, but for the next year, you can call them Tom and Becky.

Seventh graders Miles McIntyre and Elizabeth Locke were selected as Hannibal's official Tom and Becky in a ceremony at Central Park Monday as part of National Tom Sawyer Days.

Miles is the son of Stewart and Amy McIntyre. Ellie is the daughter of Jeffery and Kori Locke.

The new official Tom and Becky will make a whole host of appearances around the region in the coming year, representing the city at all sorts of events.
