The Sturgill's give back

Today I would like to set the tone for this blog; I would like to celebrate the wonderful giving hearts that a group of young ladies demonstrated as they gave back to their local community.  

As a state director for National American Miss it is my hope that the lessons taught and experiences gained during the weekend of our program will carry on in the day-to-day lives of the participants.  Here is one small but shining example of this taking place!

This is a picture of Hailey Sturgill, our 2008 Miss Washington Pre-Teen queen with a group of family and friends, also NAM participants, as they unload boxes of children's books and stuffed animals to give to the Hopelink organization.  Hopelink's motto:  "Helping People.  Changing Lives."  Way to go girls!  Great job getting out into the community and taking your time to give back.

Hailey and her two sisters, Gabriella and Lauren (also pictured above) all participated in the 2008 Washington State pageant - talk about keeping their mother Julie on her toes!

Congratulations these young ladies and their willingness to give back.  It is my dream that National American Miss would operate year round making a difference in people lives all across our communities.  Thank you to these girls for making a difference on this day.
