Namiss Indiana Teen, Mackenzie Klaes

Hello everyone! It's Monday and we just returned from sunny California and a great weekend of Open Calls! If you are thinking about signing up for the pageant this year, be sure and come to an Open Call, it's a great way to meet other girls from around the state and to get all of the information about our program for free. Call our office for more information - 210-558-3360.

I received some GREAT pictures from your National American Miss Indiana Teen Queen, Mackenzie Klaes. The first two are from last summer at the BMW Drive for A Cure, a breast cancer event. Mackenzie was able to participate and help a cause that is very dear to her, she says "It was sooo much fun! I was able to speak and even ride in the parade as a special guest. All of these events touch my heart in an extraordinary way."

The third pic is at Riley Children's Hospital where Mackenzie donated the books and bears from pageant weekend to the cancer wing of the hospital. "I was able to talk with some of the patients and put a smile on their face. This was the most heart-warming appearance I have made so far. They are so young, but have accomplished so much in their short lives. They are my hero's."

Remember all of those books and bears that we collect every year at the pageants as a part of our community involvement program? This is an example of where they end up. Great Job!

Mackenzie has been a busy young lady this year already; keep an eye out here for much more on some REALLY cool activities she has participated in, the new radio show that she is hosting and her interview with the new Miss America, Katie Stam!
