Behind every sash, is a story. Here are some of our favorites.
Susan Fochs, Miss America – Miss South Central has been involved in the Miss America organization for about 8 years.
What many people don’t know about the Miss America organization and some of the most prestigious pageants are the scholarships that can be attained. Just like Susan, being a part of the Miss America organization was the pursuit for a college scholarship, that became a pathway to walking in her purpose of helping active duty service members and veterans.
Christy Lopez, Miss Earth’s – Elite Miss Southwest came by the office to pick up her Sash. She was a breath of fresh air. We were so overwhelmed by her kindness and down to earth personality. Other than wearing her Sash around, Christy wears many hats. She is an event director, producer, on camera host, model, actress, philanthropist, just to name a few.
We were so thrilled that Miss America’s - Miss Sierra Nevada, Shalei Heflin came by for a visit. She came in to get her Sash cleaned and tour the office for a bit.
During her wait, we truly got to know the amazing woman behind the Sash. Shalei’s platform with Miss America is Strength in Separation: Furthering relationships between incarcerated parents and their children. This platform has been so near to her heart because of her own personal journey with her parent’s incarceration.
