I must remark that with few exceptions, the top 10 talents were incredibly weak. The pageant itself was well done though.

Being that today, Saturday, April 17, 2021, was the official funeral for England's beloved Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, how appropriate and timely that I reminded myself of this to post this question.

In recent years, we have heard of this Duke of Edinburgh award presented to Miss America contestants. When did it start and will they be awarded this year as well, and presented by who?

Did they have any connection to Prince Philip, 99, who died on April 9, 2021, two months before this 100th birthday on June 10, 2021?

Were they only for national contestants, or also presented to qualified local and state entrants, and for what were they awarded for and who decided who to bestow these awards? When watching today's live internationally-broadcasted low-key funeral (which the Prince would have wanted), I was reminded of this scholarship prize.

It was interesting to hear experts and even family members say that it was Prince Philip, the Queen's husband of 73 years, was the only person who get away with teasing and joking about Queen Elizabeth, even in public. She did have a sense of humor and she adored "her prince" who was ill in recent months and also a very good close grandfather to Princes William and Harry.

I had meant to ask this weeks ago, but kept forgetting.

Tonight on ABC is another episode of American Idol, a show I that I missed the last two weeks. I am surprised and happy to see that Madison Watkins is still on this singing talent show.

Does anyone know if this Fayetteville, Arkansas native ever competed in pageants and won (local or state) titles? Madison, 26, is one of the oldest contestants this year and in recent years that I have watched this program, and she is very mature and polished.

So, what tonight American Idol (to 10 pm Eastern/8 pm Central time Sunday) and also tonight is the country music award show on CBS, which some day Madison may be a presenter and a winner.

Newark Sunday Call
Atlantic City Pageant Day to be a Big September Feature
Atlantic City, April 9.

The arrangement committee has been busily at work and the outline of a program for this fall has been prepared with details to be filled in from week to week. There will be five big divisions in the pageant, with prizes plentiful for the best displays.

The first four divisions will lead up to the fifth and main division, the imposing “Bathers’ Revue” which has been divided into sections A and B. In section A will be girls who are not actresses, or in professional theatrical work of any kind. Section B will take in stage folk, movie stars and professional swimmers, and in each section a huge loving cup will be awarded the girl acclaimed to be the most beautiful by the judges. Then in the evening another choice will be made of the most beautiful girl, this time popular approval to be an influencing factor. Whoever captures the honor will receive the grand prize of a golden statuette, “the Golden Mermaid” and a $5,000 bond will have to be furnished by some friendly backer to ensure the winner will not dispose of it for one year.

The winner of “The Golden Mermaid” will receive the honor of being classified as “America’s most beautiful bathing girl” and her picture will be sent broadcast on posters and pamphlets and all correspondence to advertise the pageant for 1922.

For Section A, Annette Kellerman has donated the prize cup and she will be one of the judges. Flo Ziegfeld has also consented to serve as a judge and other eminent persons will be secured to round out the jury panel of beauty. The entries in Division B already make up a formidable list and by fall this portion of the parade, it is certain, will be prepared as one of great proportions.

Miss Texas really had it going on this past weekend for their Spring Seminar. I was hesitant about getting together in person, and this was the first in-person event since the pandemic started. So I wasn’t sure how it would go. Well.... let me tell you it was impressive. Before ANYTHING could be done every person entering the convention center had to first visit a table manned by MT volunteers, wear a mask, have their temperature taken, fill out a release form, fill out a Covid questionnaire, and THEN if everything was okay they got a wrist band showing they’d been checked. And as more people came in later they kept it up. I could not have felt more comfortable. It was so great having such a well organized, cautious event. Can’t wait for Miss Texas week!! Great job everybody, THANK YOU!,

Last week, I watched Miss Grand International. The contestant were gorgeous and their introductions over the top. The evening gowns looked like something from Project Runway and the swimsuit were a half size too small and too tight. The National costumes were crazy good (go Guatemala!). The speeches were rehearsed and the stage layout was modern.

God I loved seeing an old-fashioned beauty pageant.

Here’s the thing. I almost felt guilty for loving it. Doesn’t is feel like we are sort of shamed if we celebrate these types of events? It is almost like it is wrong to see beautiful women in a pageant. I felt like I actually needed to apologize to a co-worker for showing them a clip from the pageant. It almost feels like watching porn. I so loved it back in the day and I miss those days.

Am I alone here?

A. The opportunity is there. And all you have to do is go for it!

B. Being a teacher, you have to communicate information from the teacher (who is the source) to the student. So learning about speech communication and how that process is done is going to better equip the teacher.

C. I'm not an activist but I do believe in feminism and I believe in the movement. I think it's wonderful that people like Christine Craft can enforce discriminatory laws.

D. Talent and good looks and intellect -- to make a good Miss America. An extra sparkle, an extra charisma to make a good Miss America. (choppy quotation due to audio)

E. Last year, a door was open to me. I had the privilege of performing throughout the United States and The Far East. Tonight, a new door has opened. Through this scholarship program, I will be able to complete my Master's degree in Music and continue my career as an entertainer and a composer.

Shantel had an entire extra year to plan something spectacular for the 100th. Instead, she decided to keep the competition in Connecticut, in December, and signed a three year deal to keep it there. In addition, there is no tv deal in place. There literally are no new sponsors. So nothing has changed one bit since December 2019. Nothing. Things are exactly the same. Except for the six lawsuits, of course, and the $1,500 fee that all states have to pay because Shantel is upset that everyone left the organization and started a new one.

Thank you Gretchen, Regina, Shantel, and Mallory for destroying Miss America.

I check in here about once a month to see what is happening in the world of pageants:

1. Regarding MAO, I am thankful I got the gum off the bottom of my shoe when I did. I saw the writing on the wall when Sam was terminated and the God Squad moved in. I am told I was the first state BOD member to resign. Good riddance.

2. I was approached about Volunteer and declined. Thank God. My major in college was not theater, so I don’t deal well with drama.

3. Miss USA / Universe: They lost their way in the 2000’s, but seem to be getting back on track. I can’t tell you who the current winner is, as I have not watched since Tara Conner was used as a publicity stunt, but I may watch this year.

Miss World: I lament not getting involved when I had the chance.

Miss Grand international: contestants seem a bit artificial, but man, did I enjoy seeing a good old beauty pageant, even if on Facebook. Probably my favorite event of the past few years.

They say once pageants are in your blood, they are always in your blood. They lie. Put your checkbook away and get out into the world. From experience, life is short.

They did have time enough to feature Ms. Pender extensively, but am I incorrect in wondering why a state that had the reigning Miss America would have handled things that way?

For those who are still a part of the current Miss America Organization, I am curious what you see as the good things that are currently happening. Does Shantel do a good job of keeping you all updated on information? Are the state EDs excited about the upcoming competition? Is there a plan for the 100th that people are getting behind? I know it’s easy to criticize, but I also want to give MAO one more chance if those closest to the action now think that things are headed in the right direction.

Thoughts?

June 28, 1949 - March 29, 2021

It is with great sadness that we mark the passing of Donna Davis Parsons, formerly Donna Kaye Byrd of Elkin. Daughter of the Reverend Von Byrd and Hazel Byrd (Cox), Donna graduated from Elkin High School in 1967, was crowned Miss Elkin Valley ‘67-‘68 and competed in the 1968 Miss North Carolina pageant. She went on to receive her MFA in acting from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and subsequently moved to New York City to pursue her dream. Her career spanned some 40 years in the theatre, on television and in films, including leading roles in classical and contemporary plays, on and off Broadway, in regional theaters around the country and in Europe. She was a loving wife to William Parsons and mother of two daughters: Deni O’Toole Sheehan of Elkin and Caroline Juliano presently of London, England. She is survived by them and her brother, Judge David Byrd of North Wilkesboro. When not on stage, Donna managed renovation of her Brooklyn brownstone, created an incredible garden, and threw fabulous parties. In 2020 she returned home to Elkin, living out her final year in the beautiful foothills her ancestors settled as pioneers. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to www.Alz.org to help fight this terrible disease.
No service is planned.

Subject: I've been watching some of the pageants from the 70s and it amazes me how much ENTERTAINMENT they were able to pack into two hours. Granted we can do without the corny production numbers, but it just shows how far we've detoured from the "specialness" of the Miss America telecast.. I used to love how they zoomed in on the former Miss America towards the beginning when she took her first runway walk and Bert Parks sung "Look at Her". I was always anxious to see how she changed from the year prior. We always knew the format would be the same. A top ten would be chosen and they would compete in all three categories without unnecessary elimination rounds. The contestants in their modest swimsuits was always tastefully done. And then the reigning Miss America got her final runway walk with a fitting farewell to her year. When they announced the non-finalist talent winners, if my state hadn't made top 10, I was always hopeful she would win one of those awards.

The one I just watched was very entertaining. It had Sherry Thrift (first runner-up to Miss America), Barbara Crandal former Miss Michigan who was a non-finalist Talent winner at Miss America (1984), Ronda Gerardot from Ohio (don't know her),and Susan Cantalupo-who competed in Connecticut in 1985. Funny when Thrift came out they said she was 5'2.(eye roll). I love this old stuff from the 80s.

A. Good evening, I'm 21 years old & a senior at the University of ______________. At different times of my life I have devoted myself to music, art, or the performing arts. But now I realize I am most happy when combining all three creative arts.

B. I'm a 25 year old graduate of the University of ____________ School of Music -- and I've learned that man is unique because he's blessed with the gift of laughter and tears. I thank God for those character-building hardships that bring the tears and I thank Him for the laughter that makes those tears worthwhile.

C. Good evening, Ladies & Gentlemen. I'm a 20 year old senior elementary education major. A wise gentleman once said, "Though we travel the world over to find beauty, unless we carry it with us, we will find it naught." Thank you, Americans, for being very beautiful people.

D. Abused children: I would try to set up more facilities to help them. I think their main problems are psychological. They've gone through so much abuse they don't know kindness & they don't know how to handle kindness. So I'd try to set up more programs to help them if I had the facilities.

Over the last three years, those associated with MAO leadership have hijacked the organization, completely changed it to something unrecognizable, used bullying and fear tactics to keep women silent, and as of this week started using Spyware to prevent EDs from forwarding info on to others. MAO continues to operate out of fear and control tactics. The only thing MAO has taught young women over the last three years is how NOT to lead.

What is Gretchen's / Regina's / Shantel's reasoning for having the Miss contestants only refer to themselves by the state they're from -- and not Miss . . . . Obviously, many of the girls did not approve of this and still introduced themselves as Miss .... But the inconsistency was quite noticeable, as the emcees only referrred to them by their state. If this is what they want, then realistically Miss America should be referred to as "America." The whole thing is ridiculous as far as I'm concerned; if they ever gave a reasoning for this, I missed it..

Jean Magness and David White have both been huge forces in Texas pageantry. Both are former state EDs for the Miss America program. They are going to make the Miss Texas Volunteer pageant the hands down premier pageant in the state. They have major connections and will spoil their winner royally. Girls should RUN to this pageant this summer. It’s not even a question of which program will be superior anymore. Look for girls to start dropping their Miss Texas MAO local titles and going to compete this summer with the new Volunteer program.

As of now, there are three systems that are available for Miss girls to participate in. Which system do you now support?

Miss USA- This system is focused on classy, glamorous modeling, beauty and fitness, with interview skills as an integral part as well. Primarily attracts girls interested in careers in entertainment, modeling, and/or social media. Crystle Stewart has promised to bring even more glam to the USA system.

Miss Volunteer America- This system is focused on selecting the all-around girl who is beautiful, fit, talented, and intelligent. This system is the “OG” Miss America pageant that you all grew up with through 2018. Typically attracts girls that want to work on themselves in a well-rounded way. The DeMarcus Nextflix stars are sure to attract a following very quickly.

Miss America- Arguably the smallest of the three competitions going into this new year, the system does everything to shy away from beauty, fitness, or pageantry. It’s become a talking and talent competition only since 2019, focusing on social initiative statements. It has name brand recognition and attracts girls who fawn over the title “Miss America.”

I spent a few hours watching the Pageant Heyday channel last night. I'm not one of those people to dwell on a past that was never as great as my memories. But as we watch the state and national pageants from as recently as 15 years ago, you get the sense of how much MAO has lost its way.

NOBODY cares about what they are selling or wants to watch somebody "interviewing" for a job while leadership keeps driveling on about "empowerment." The people who care about those things are inextricably opposed to the institution they are running into the ground. They should not be part of it any longer.

It's a pageant. I cannot understand how there is anything wrong if young women want to compete in swimsuit, and cannot see why the powers that be would have even screwed up the evening gown competition. I also disagree with the continued whacking away at the talent segment, much less the concept that an 8th-grade lab demonstration should have merited anything but rolled eyes and laughter. And though I have few issues with platforms, if I want to dwell on issues I'll watch C-Span.

It's a pageant. Nothing is ever going to get the ratings MA used to get, but we are seeing major sporting events facing the same challenges. But MAO does not have to pull huge numbers to survive in the current landscape. There is a definite niche in the marketplace for a product that would appeal to a loyal and engaged fanbase. As a person that spent decades in tourism-related marketing, it's utter insanity to see the constant tinkering with a format that fails to bring in new viewers and succeeds only in alienating the loyal. I realize I'm not saying a single thing most of you folks already know, but it's absolutely an insane tragedy what has happened to a century old brand.

First, watch the Golden Globe awards show tonight (now playing) on NBC as they likely will have an "In Memoriam" tribute segment of past recently deceased stars and top L.A. producers including a tribute to actress and former Miss Chicago 1946, Cloris Leachman, who was a top 16 finalist at Miss America in 1946. She died on January 27, 2021 at age 94.

Also, unrelated to pageantry and tonight's gala award show, but not far away from the Los Angeles broadcast portion of tonight's show (the other originating from New York City), word was announced on Friday that the two stolen dogs of Lady Gaga were located and taken to police.

All three dogs are now back together including the one not stolen during the bizarre canine heist. However, dog walker Ryan Fischer is still making a recovery from torso injuries.

Am I the only one who is kind of puzzled by this sudden and announced half-million dollar reward by the famed singer and now actress (who is in Rome filming a movie now)??

She puts up $500.000 for the dogs, but not any reward money to help solve the kidnapping and near-fatal shooting case to help get dire tips on who shot the dog walking friend? Seems odd.

She was more concerned over the dogs than putting up money for the guy and trying to help solve the case in general??

The media announced an email address for Lady Gaga in the name of her two now returned dogs...maybe we all should email Lady Gaga and her handlers/family to tell them that was kind of an odd reward priority----just find my dogs, and who cares who shot my pal/dog walker??

KojiandGustav@gmail.com

Lets all hope that this was not an an elaborate concocted scheme involving Ryan himself to get big money from a despite dog-loving Lady Gaga?? But she has had an eventual two months this year, so far. She sang at the Biden presidential inauguration last month in Washington, and now she made big headlines late this month over two "stolen" French bulldogs.

Trust me, dog-gone-it, these dogs will not sign autographs, but you can still send them fan email!!!

For those who remember this exactly 34 years ago tonight or for those who were not yet born, it was on this day, Thursday, February 17, 1987, when CBS aired the 1987 Miss USA pageant from the Tingley Coliseum (affectionally known by locals as the so-called "Cow Palace") in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It was the first and last time that the state hosted the Miss USA pageant

At the time, this pageant featued the largest amoung of past Miss America contests (two which made the top 11 semi-finalists):

*Arizona-USA, Diane Lynn Martin (Miss Arizona 1985)--Second runner-up
*Mississippi-USA, Katharine Clare Manning (Miss Mississippi 1984 and Miss America second runner-up)--top 11

*Indiana-USA, Alecia Rae Masalkoski (competing as Alecia Rae) (Miss Michigan 1985, Miss America semi-finalist ) non-finalist
*Lousisiana-USA, Carol Carter (Miss Louisiana 1985)--non-finalist
*Wisconsin-USA, Regina Maria Part (two-time Miss Wisconsin finalist)---non-finalist


The 1987 Miss USA pageant was the final year that Bob Barker hosted the national pageant after 20 consecutive years (1967-1987), and he also hosted Miss Universe three months later in Singapore which his 1987 contract required.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhhwun2JUuY
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7GMtjt0EFo

This was one of a few years when the reigning Miss Teen-USA also competed in the Miss USA competition as Miss Universe, Inc. attemppted to have one become the "Triple Crown of Beauty"--it never happened with teenage girls competing against 20-24 year-olds.

Outgoing Miss USA 1986, Christiane Crane "Christy" Fichtner (who was crowned in May 1986 in Miami, Florida) had one of the shortest reigns due to the Miss USA pageant moving from the normal May schedule to February in 1987. The North Dallas, Texas native and first runner-up to Miss Universe 1986, was the second of what would be five back-to-back Texan Miss USA winners. Exactly 34 years later, wondering what Christy and successor Michelle are doing these days??

Curious to know how many women made it to Miss America singing "My Funny Valentine" and how did they place? I know Miss Texas, Rhonda Morrison sang the sentimental song in 1991 when she was among the top ten, but anyone else?

And also any other Valentine's related songs to make the finals, besides these that I recall:

I recall Miss Tennessee, Dana Renee Brown sang "I Can't Give You Anything but Love, Baby" in 1990 and Miss Tennessee, Stephanie Wittler sang "I Will Always Love You" in the 2009 top ten which was the same song that Miss Virginia, Nancy Glisson sang in the 1993 finals when she was also a semi-finalist and then fourth runner-up.

Miss Texas 1990, Suzanne Elizabeth Lawrence sang "Sweet Dreams" in the most sultry tasteful way and made top ten and won third runner-up that year. She passed away at 34 in August 2003.

Additionally, Miss Colorado, Karrie Lee Mitchell sang the Mariah Carey hit song "Vision of Love" and Miss Mississippi, Wanda Gayle Geddy used "More Than You Know" to make the semi-finals in 1983 and place third runner-up.

While not among the semi-finals in 1984, Miss Florida, Lisa Veldez sang "Through the Eyes of Love", however Miss Washington 1980, Doris Hayes sang "Love Is Here to Stay" to place in the semi-finals. Sadly, next month marks the one-year anniversary of her passing at age 59, told here:
http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/tribnet/obituary.aspx?n=doris-janell-hayes-clark&pid=195875805&fhid=23431

Any other Valentine's type songs made it big at Miss America...or used in the preliminary competitions who did not make the semi-finals?

Not sure what the goal of this pageant is, beyond making money for the owner. Looked back on Insta, they don't do anything after winning. I mean other pay to play pageants (NAM, IJM, MHSA etc) go on group cruises, photoshoots etc. These winners get prizes & sent home (waiting for MMG to call). Makes me wonder what MVA prize package will be

While most of you were distracted by the Trump impeachment conviction trial in the US Senate this week, in the meantime at the other side of the nation's capitol, the U.S. House was resuming its normal business and scheduled hearings.

Last night (Thursday, February 11, 2021) C-SPAN aired the House of Representatives Judiciary Consumer and Employment committee hearing which featured America's beloved former Miss America 1989, Gretchen Carlson, the champion of the #MeToo movement.

For those interested in Gretchen's testimony about work-place non-disclosure contracts (something that she and then-Miss America 2018, Cara Mund both know something about), you can watch it here at about video time 29:00:
http://www.c-span.org/video/?508903-1/house-judiciary-hearing-employment-arbitration-agreements&live

They titled Gretchen as "Journalist and former FOX News anchor" as she spoke to the House members.....anyone care to add "MAO dictator"??

Also, speaking of Gretchen and C-SPAN, you can see this from the C-SPAN video archives, when she and Regina Hopper (Miss Arkansas 1993 and recent MAO chairwoman) spoke at a National Press Club event regarding the then-status of the Miss America Organization:

Which of these following do you think the next Miss America Pageant will emulate?

A) Massive celebration to rival the 75th. Lots of history told, formers back and a return to a lot of the traditions. Network will even have a separate show to highlight the organization's history

B) Network pageant with many mentions down memory lane

C) Network pageant that looks almost identical to the last pageant. Beside repeated talking about "the 100th year" or mentioning the 100th anniversary, it is a carbon copy of Camille's year

D) Cable pageant that is on a channel many of us don't get. The pageant looks nothing like any competition we have ever seen and does nothing special for the 100th

F) No pageant televised.

We are excited to announce the five categories that will make up our Miss Mississippi Volunteer competition! These competition areas include Interview, Talent, Evening Gown, Fitness & Wellness, and Onstage Question.
In the next few days, we will explain what each phase of the competition looks like.
Let's start with the Interview portion. The interview will consist of a 12-minute panel interview that is 40% of your preliminary score. Here are a few characteristics that we are looking for; Professional, Intelligent, a Leader in their Community, Diversity Aware, and Resilient.
We look forward to what all of you ladies have to bring in each of these areas and can't wait to crown our very first Miss Mississippi Volunteer. Who will she be??

Let’s talk about the Talent portion of the Miss Mississippi Volunteer program. Talent will be 20% of the preliminary score.
Talent performances may include a contestant’s natural aptitude, personal skill, gift or passion in an area of their choice.
This competition includes but is not limited to the performing arts and can include demonstrations of: Dance, Comedy, Operatic Performance, Illusion Performance, Ventriloquism, Athletic Skill Demonstration, Vocal Performance, Monologue, Instrumental, Career
Interest, Speed Painting, Baton Twirling, and Avocation.
Mississippians are known for their talent and we are so excited to give you the opportunity to showcase your talent!

One of the most iconic parts of a pageant is the Evening Gown competition, and Miss Mississippi Volunteer is bringing glamour to the stage with our Evening Gown competition!
This competition is designed to feature the young woman wearing the dress, rather than the dress itself. 20% of the preliminary score comes from the Evening Gown competition.
Judges will consider the contestant’s composure and stage presence during this phase of competition. The focus will be on the appropriateness of the gown and, most importantly, on the contestant’s personality, poise and confidence.


The Fitness & Wellness competition is designed to demonstrate the contestant’s healthy lifestyle and is 20% of the preliminary score.
Judges will consider the contestant’s confidence on stage, display of charisma and dedication to mind-body balance.
Focus is not on a contestant’s size or shape, but rather to challenge a contestant to achieve higher levels of health, energy, wellness and purpose to integrate all aspects of body, mind and spirit


The Onstage Question is the final portion of the Miss Mississippi Volunteer competition, and it is not scored by the judges.
During the Onstage Question, the top five will showcase their ability to speak effectively using a microphone and professionally present themselves on stage. This portion allows the audience to get to know the top five contestants and get a little glimpse of what the judges saw during their private interviews.

The Miss Arkansas Scholarship Competition

Miss Arkansas was the first African-American woman to win preliminary awards in Miss America and first to place in the top 5, where she was Fourth Runner Up and the first African-American to be crowned Miss Arkansas. Lencola Sullivan (born 1957) is an American news anchor, singer and former beauty queen who has competed in the Miss America pageant.

Sullivan was the oldest of five children born to Richard and Macie Sullivan. She attended the University of Central Arkansas where she received a degree in broadcasting.

Sullivan won the Miss Arkansas title in July 1980 and represented Arkansas in the Miss America 1981 pageant held later that year in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Sullivan became the first African-American woman to win preliminary awards in the pageant and was also the first to place among the top five, where she was fourth runner-up.

Sullivan became a news reporter on KARK-TV in Little Rock, Arkansas, and later moved to New York City. She has also worked for KTTV-TV in Austin, Texas, and sang with Stevie Wonder, Kool & the Gang (for example on the album Unite) and the Lionel Hampton Orchestra, among many other things.

In 2002, Sullivan married Roel P. Verseveldt, a native of the Netherlands, in Little Rock, Arkansas. She and her husband have since been involved in international business activities. Among other things, Sullivan also works at Royal Dutch Shell and teaches and guest-lectures at the University of Groningen, both in the area of diversity and inclusion. She currently lives in The Hague.

Subject: This was posted earlier and then removed… not sure why, but it is the VERIFIED TRUTH and people/fans should have the information! Addition lawsuits have been filed over the NAME of a pageant in several states. The phrase “Miss State” is being used all over the country by MANY different types of pageants and this is just another attempt to do what they are doing to Donna Bozarth and her Board members - stop anyone from moving forward. It was also posted on this Board that the focus and money should be on the 100th Anniversary and paying out scholarships instead of spending money on lawsuits, as we have seen how those turn out. Our young women deserve the opportunity to choose where they compete and what organization they want to associate with. Please don’t silence information that people need to have. Thank you.

With all the friggin' things wrong with MAO, I can't believe they posted the following question on Facebook.

Question of the Week: "How can we increase diverse representation in our political system?"


What the hell is wrong with the MAO board and leadership? You have made no attempt whatsoever to fix Miss America, which has been steadily going downhill since Gretchen came on the scene. All of you need to resign. Why would anyone care what you say about "our political system" when you don't have enough intellect, savvy, contacts, etc. to return MAO to the previous position it held before your friend, Gretchen, destroyed it.

Miss Mississippi Volunteer Scholarship Pageant

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Tim Avant on February 2, 2021. Tim was excited to be the inaugural Producer of the Miss Mississippi Volunteer Pageant this summer and his absence will leave a huge hole in our program. A life so beautifully lived deserves to be beautifully remembered. Please join us as we celebrate the life of Tim.
Tim’s passion was his love for music and band. He loved each and every student he taught. While attending MSU, Tim was drum major for “The Famous Maroon Band” as well as being their Auxiliary Coordinator for the past 5 years.
He taught in the Mississippi Public School Systems for 26 years and retired as Director of Bands from the Louisville School District in 2014. His teaching career began in McComb, followed by stops at Southwest MS Community College, Kosciusko, Amory, West Point and Stone County. Having taught on all academic levels from kindergarten to college, his primary focus was middle school and high school band. His groups consistently received superior ratings in marching, concert and sight-reading.
After graduating from West Point High School in 1977, he received his Bachelor of Music Education and Master of Music Education degrees from Mississippi State University. He served on the staff of the Florida All-Star Marching Band, Mississippi Lions All-State Band in 1992 and was Visual Coordinator for the 2006 International Champion Mississippi Lions All-State Band. In 1994 and 1995, he served as Visual Coordinator for Itawamba Community College’s WGI Southern Regional Finalist Indoor Color Guard. Tim was a member of the National Band Association, Mississippi Bandmasters Association and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia. He served as an officer for the Northeast Mississippi Jr. High Band Directors Association, a former member of the Gulf Coast Band Directors and East Mississippi Band Directors Association. He adjudicates marching band, color guard and drum major throughout the Southeastern United States.
Tim is survived by his brother, Clint Avant and wife Jennifer of West Point; sisters, Tina Avant of West Point and Lynn Nance and husband Delynn of Caledonia; nieces, Stephanie Smith, Megan Pennington (Colby); nephews, Zack Avant (Leah) and Clay Nance (Nikki) and a host of great nieces and nephews.
A graveside Celebration of Life Service will be held Monday, February 8, 2021 at 2:00pm from Odd Fellows Cemetery, Starkville, MS. The Famous Maroon Band will serve as honorary pallbearers.

To post pictures, you must use (HTML) computer code and have the web address of the photo.

If I show you/use the proper HTML code, it will work and all you'd see is the photo, no code, so I'm adding a space between the < & > and the body of the code. Don't forget to remove the spaces when you go to post!! < IMG src="web address goes here" >

You replace what’s within the quote marks “web address goes here“ with the web address of the photo.

So let's say you want to post the photo of Shantel Krebs and Jason Robinson from the interview post on the MAO Fan Forum FB page.

To capture the pic's web address you can open the photo in its own tab and cut and paste the address of the photo in the search bar into the HTML code above. (there are other ways to capture a photo's address, depending on your device.)

That web address of the photo is: https://external-ort2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/safe_image.php?d=AQF_fpR_n3cyKtFg&w=500&h=261&url=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2Fb3WyAgULjdw%2Fmaxresdefault.jpg&cfs=1&ext=jpg&_nc_cb=1&_nc_hash=AQHmW9ag0ldns5TI

Next we replace "web address goes here" with the actual web address: Here's what that looks like:
< IMG src=" https://external-ort2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/safe_image.php?d=AQF_fpR_n3cyKtFg&w=500&h=261&url=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2Fb3WyAgULjdw%2Fmaxresdefault.jpg&cfs=1&ext=jpg&_nc_cb=1&_nc_hash=AQHmW9ag0ldns5TI" >

And here I used the entire proper code, without the < > spaces. All you'll see is the photo, none of the code, bc the code works!:



Bonus time! If you want to adjust the size of the photo, you add: height=250 to the end of the code: < IMG src="web address goes here”height=250 >
250 is the size. You can play with the number- preview the posting/ photo size and adjust before posting. PREVIEW or you may end up posting a picture the size of Indiana, lol. Enjoy Gurus!

Date Posted: 16:36:33 01/31/21 Sun

Having never met Shantel or heard her speak, I was anxious to hear this interview. Though she has been very criticized on these boards, I am one who likes to make my own decision based on what I experience as oppose to just follow everyone else.

My overall reaction was not good. She had a clear agenda that she was going to talk about regardless of what she was asked. She would shower Jason with compliments and then just proceed down the road she wanted. Her talking points seemed very untrue and stale. Much like MAO's old "Miss America travels 20,000 miles a month" narrative.

Let me give you all some specific examples. Shantel talks all about having a platform message and using that during the winner's year. That sounds great. Camille was billed a the "scientist Miss America". A different hook that was fresh to this system. Then a once in a hundred year pandemic hits. The perfect coupling of science and information. What happens? Did Camille ever do ONE appearance dealing with Corona and the science behind staying safe? In the few things I saw, I never saw that. This blend of current events and her brand would have given MAO the perfect opportunity to return to the prominent appearances they use to have.

Second example: Preparing great women for the future. How does MAO exactly do that? By offering a infrequent zoom seminar? Are there other prep items I don't know about.

Third example: MAOT That question was the most uncomfortable minute. We all are learning what really went down behind the scenes here and she is acting like nothing occurred. I know a leader needs to always try and put a positive spin on things, but in my state, Teen numbers have plummeted. The leader needs to at least not pretend nothing occurred

Final, but not least, example: Her constant messaging that the Board is very much in control and working so hard. Many of us have heard stories where that is not true. It sounds like the board just follows whatever Shantel says. How many of those members have seen the financials? How many are questioning why certain things are happening? The only board news we ever hear is about the members who are leaving. I found it strange that Shantel made a point of frequently including them in the story.

And Poor Jason. He didn't seem to know what hit him. I haven't seen his other interviews, but he wasn't in charge any of these 18 minutes.

I love Miss America. I want its 100th year to be it's best year yet. After hearing our leader, I have really concerns. That is my frank take on what I heard. Anyone else?

I just took a really good look at 2.0's page, and I was more than a little surprised that they're asking for donations before any information is offered. Then I understood--when you look at the "sponsors and partners," there are no powerhouse companies, no huge corporate sponsors at all. I can remember when corporate sponsors included car companies, electronic (i.e. makers of televisions and/or refrigerators etc were prominently featured) makers, and so on, but they're gone. So are the big scholarships, because without companies like Fruit of the Loom, Ford Motor, or GE, getting the money isn't possible.

Oh, and while I was at it, I sneaked a peek at Miss USA, and unless I misunderstood (and I may have), it looks as though they're considering adding talent. If they do--and I know that's a big if--it will finish what was started back when Yolande Betbeze started by refusing to be photographed in a swimsuit after she won. Maybe they can get Catalina back as a sponsor, eh?

For those of you who are interested in vintage pageants, I just saw an interesting clip on You Tube.
It is a local TV newscast featuring footage of Phyllis being crowned as Miss Texas and a press conference the following day.
The crowning scene looks just like her at Miss America (same dress/hairstyle.)
And before you start badgering me, No, I'm not posting the link.
Just go to the You Tube search bar and put in WFAA Phyllis George Crowning and it should come up.

corrections, additions,
[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 20:30:12 01/30/21 Sat



From 1921 to 1927 the statuette was the Golden Mermaid

1933 appears there was no trophy

1935 (Leaver) & 1936 (Coyle) the statuette was one arm in the air and one pointing back

1937 to 1951 (Hutchins) the statuette was a nude Venus with both arms in the air

1952 (Langly) to 1955 (Ritchie) the statuette was an angel with wings

1956 (McKnight) to 1971 (Schaefer) the statuette was a Miss America with 4 point crown, holding flat star type scepter, off shoulder gown, with no sash

1972 (Meeuwsen) to 1989 (Turner) (???) – the statuette was a Miss America with a Miss America sash, holding a 4-point crown scepter, long gloves, with a cape / robe

1990 - (Marjorie Vincents year) - ???

1991(Sapp) to 1999 (French) – the statuette very similar to previous one with 4 point crown, holding scepter with 4 point crown, one arm to side, but NO cape / robe

After that it appears that all awards were the glass plaque type trophies some with crowns etched on.

Please help with any corrections or additions or more information.

Thank you

I've been watching past MA pageants (because that's what they were!) and the beauty, grace, talent and dignity that used to be part and parcel of the program, so I asked my daughters to try it as well (thanks to Youtube and everyone who has made them available). They really took it seriously, and then they gave me a surprise; we all picked the SAME year, 1989, when Debbye Turner became MA 1990. My youngest made a comment about it that had us all howling with laughter--the moment when GC had to run off the stage holding her violin was both silly and sad, because she had gained weight during her year and her rear end wobbled as she ran. Anyway, the talent that year was amazing, and my other daughters said that out of the ten semi-finalist, there wasn't one who wouldn't have been great. So what do you all think?

I hope the pageant comes back with a top ten and showing all top ten talent. Evening gown needs to come back and physical fitness , however our candidate keeps in shape. But, I was wondering. If talent is now 50 percent. Who do you think would have won from 1970 to current?

These quotes each come from a different decade, beginning with the 1960s to our current decade. The contestants that made these statements all did well at Miss America. Have fun and good luck!

A. "I tell myself that in a way I'm an expert in my field, being my field is me."

B. "I think Donald Trump is an entertainer and he says what's on a lot of peoples' minds. I think the Republican Party should be absolutely terrified of all the attention he is taking away from incredible candidates like Chris Christie and Jeb Bush, who could absolutely do the job of President of the United States."

C. "I honestly feel that I have something to give and that is a genuine love for life and a love for the people of this country that I would love to share with those people."

D. "I think it's also really important that Miss America be a single woman, not dating or in a relationship, so that she can be fully dedicated to her job."

E. "I recently heard someone say that it's not what you do that you'll regret, but what you don't do. That partially explains why I am here tonight and why I'll always taken advantage of every opportunity made available to me."

F. "I didn't take it up because I was shy around people; I've always been a ham. But, I took it up because I enjoyed it, it was fun, and it was something unique."

G. "When you go to college, you go to get an education, not just a degree. And it's the same thing with life. When you stop learning, you stop living."

I've recently been watching some of the old Miss SC pageants from Pageants Hay Day.
Does anyone have any info to share regarding the preliminary winners from the '78 or the '85 pageants?
Also, there is a performer in the '85 pageant, identified as Joyce Glenn, a former Miss Ft. Mill.
She does the most incredible jazzy arrangement of Somewhere Over the Rainbow that I have ever heard.
It's somewhere in the middle of Judy Garland's and Patti Labelle's.
What was her record of placements in SC?
I would have posted on the SC forum, but they now make you create an account and give them everything except your shoe size.
Any info would be appreciated.
Thank you.

I keep going back to past pageants (boy, do I love youtube!), and then it hit me: one thing that is becoming more evident is that GC loves to be the center of attention, and she also seems to have a thing about not allowing anyone else to outshine her looks. It's like she feels she can stay MA (as in continuing while refusing to let the "candidates" have the class and glamour evident up to the time she took the helm). It's almost as though the powers-that-be think beauty is a handicap, glamour is a thing of the past, and MAO is causing a huge problem for the program because many of those who would compete feel like they can't because they are beautiful, which GC and RH have made clear is actually a handicap (remember how emphatic GC was when she took over about how "looks aren't a priority"). It's almost hypocritical, because when she was pursuing the title, she didn't wear less makeup, didn't wear unflattering clothes, didn't try to downplay her talent...and the list goes on and on. Other programs like MU, MW, MUSA and so on still have the beauty and glamour, and the women who compete in them aren't any less intelligent, diligent, or talented simply because they happen to be beautiful.

Another thing I noticed: high class sponsors like Waterford Crystal, Fruit of the Loom, and various car companies disappeared almost overnight. Why didn't anyone try to keep them on board, and why didn't MAO go for sponsorship from places like Yahoo, Microsoft, Christian Siriano (or any other good designer with their own brand), or any other of these types of sponsors? It just doesn't make sense.

It is nothing short of tragic that something so fine, so integral and intrinsically American is being lost because the current leadership is incapable of doing the job that others did so well throughout the years. Our past MAs were a bright spot during some interesting times, and they did it well. A few examples of growth: a winner, who when asked what she would do if her high heels broke during swimsuit responded that she'd kick them off because she thought swimsuits should be done in bare feet to begin with, or Carolyn Sapp's response to a question about the swimsuit competition, that in Hawaii, people went to the store in bikinis. There was the gallant way everyone responded after 9/11, and the thoughtful approach to the question of whether the pageant should be held at all. Of course there are a million other stories and examples of how things were handled even as recently as ten years ago, but my daughter said she thought that whoever was in charge was trying to kill MA outright.

So, I have a request--can any of you share stories of pageants past that enhanced the event or ones that made people think? (another favourite of mine was Kaye Lani Rafko's story about how she competed in the same blue gown until someone gave her a different dress)

In these difficult times, we need Miss America to be the light that she always was, the beacon of hope that shined regardless of controversy. Whatever packaging used, the real inner beauty always showed, and that's what the crown represented.

I am not the regular poster of pageant quotations, but always enjoy trying to figure them out and thought I'd throw some out. Good luck!

A) "My entire life has been surrounded by music, and even though I plan to be a speech patholigist, I intend to make music an integral part of my life."

B) "Being from a blended family, it was a little bit different. I always knew I was different from everyone else.
So, I had to deal with some of the criticisms from other people and the name calling. But I had good role models who taught me that it was okay to be different."

C) "And on behalf of 50 girls, I want to thank you for giving it to us this week.

D) When asked what she would do if her heel broke off as she was walking down the runway in swimsuit she responded, "Well, I think it's much more natural to walk barefoot in a swimsuit, so I'd kick the other one off and walk that way!"

E) "I believe that success is more important than winning. I feel that when a person achieves their full potential they are successful, and that is definitely more mportant than actually winning."

F) "Humility is the key to success in life. And humility, though very, very obvious to others, is invisible to those that posess it."

For over 40 years Steve Stockton has been involved with scholarship pageants and foundations. The desire to provide young women and men of Mississippi opportunities for personal achievement motivates him daily. As a teenager, he became involved with his local scholarship pageant, and he helped with fundraising efforts for a regional newborn care center for his community hospital. This led to many years of volunteering and fundraising for important causes and life-changing opportunities for young people. For example, he and his wife Darlene volunteered to direct musical productions for their school district. They have served on multiple scholarship foundation boards and on the board of Mississippi Rising, which raised money for victims of Hurricane Katrina. Steve also serves as President of The Windows of Amory and on numerous community organizations and committees. Steve and Darlene were recognized for their accomplishments when they were named Citizens of the Year in their hometown of Amory.
Steve’s goal is for every contestant to feel welcome at Miss Mississippi Volunteer and for them to explore all the potential they possess in a fun and nurturing environment. At the end of the week, scholarships will be awarded so that these young women will have more opportunities to further their life goals. He looks forward to bringing his experience and passion for making a difference in the lives of Mississippians to Tupelo.
Join Steve and the rest of the Miss Mississippi Volunteer America board for a fun-filled week of competition!

I already have those DVDs and I also have the interview DVD. And I have to tell you in all honesty that, in my opinion, that is the most poorly judged Miss America pageant that I have seen-and I've seen plenty. I have no problem with the winner. I do have plenty of problems with those who got in and those who got screwed out of top 10 placements.

Then HayDay referred to Wilson as attending school in GA for her last year of eligibility and crating a phony southern accent for the pageant. Could that be why she didn’t advance beyond the Top 10 despite being stellar in all phases of competition?!?
