Today is the day that the contestants for Miss North Carolina move in to Peace University to begin their week to compete for the crown of Miss North Carolina. Campbell has three lovely ladies competing this year: Miss Dunn Sami McDaniel, Miss Moore County Scarlett Short, and Miss Campbell Sue Ann Forrest.
Before school let out for the summer, we talked with Sue Ann, who just graduated in the spring with a major in English and Communication Studies and a minor in Marketing.
The Miss Campbell Pageant was held by Sigma Alpha Omega and Sue Ann said she heard about the pageant from them and decided to compete. The pageant was not originally a preliminary to Miss North Carolina, but with the support of Campbell, they helped her to meet the requirements so she could compete this week.
Regarding the Miss North Carolina Organization, Sue Ann has only the best things to say.
“I would advise young women at Campbell to pursue opportunities to compete in Miss North Carolina preliminary competitions. This is my very first year going to Miss North Carolina, and I already feel like I’ve made lifelong friends through this organization. Additionally, through this program, I think I’ve sharpened and developed skills that will help me in my future career.” -Sue Ann Forrest
Wednesday-Friday these girls will shine in talent, swimsuit, onstage question and evening gown. Stay tuned to the blog and Twitter for updates on how well they perform!
