Being Miss Maumee Valley

Congrats to the New Miss Greater Dayton, Becky Minger!

Roberta Camp is another one of my very favorite "pageant people." I met her last year at Miss Ohio while she was representing the title Miss Greater Dayton. We recently met Miss America 2000, Heather French, together at Miss SEO, and we'll be hanging out more this July as she is Miss Scioto Valley!

Sunday afternoon Berta gave up the Miss GD title, and a third BGSU Falcon was crowned! That's right, in addition to Kristin Haas and I, BG Freshman Becky Minger will be at Miss Ohio! Becky is studying Musical Arts and Journalism. I believe she sang "How Lovely to be a Woman" from Bye Bye Birdie; her platform is "Building Self Esteem in Teens." While this was her first Miss America system pageant, I think, she has prior experience, as she was Third Runner-up in the Miss Ohio Teen USA pageant recently. Click here for a BGNews article on her success there. At Miss Greater Dayton, she also won Interview and Casual Wear. [I love the post-pageant calls! The photo on the right is from her Facebook.]

The First Runner up was Kara Roberts; she has participated and placed at many pageants this season, in addition to being Miss Beauty's of America 20's (a pageant system supporting breast cancer awareness). She is studying Theatre Performance at Ohio University and Volunteerism is her platform.

Unfortunately, I have no individual photos or any information on Second Runner up Ashley Hartman, Third Runner up and Spirit Award winner Allie Wagner, People's Choice winner Michelle King or Photogenic winner Aimee Everman . If anyone knows more on these ladies, please share.

The Fourth Runner up was also a fabulous falcon! Janelle Zindroski is a Music and Chemistry major. She sings and plays the bagpipes for talent; her platform is "Embrace Our Children To Secure Our Future." [Photo on the right from her Facebook.]

Finally, the Swimsuit, Evening Gown and Talent awards went to Amanda Holzen. She is a Kent State grad who is new to this pageant system, so I don't know what she did for talent. [Photo on the left from Amanda's website.]
