2015 Miss North Carolina Pre-Teen Jessica Johnson attended the Charleston Symphony Orchestra Gospel Choir and Spiritual’s performance of the special concert honoring the nine people killed at the Mother Emanuel Church in Charleston, SC. Jessica was instrumental in helping serve lunches to the volunteer choir and musicians prior to the concert. They served about 120 people and Jessica performed duties that involved food service and clean up with her friendly, sweet smile and ease of discussing different topics with our performers. At the appointed time, Jessica stood at the front door with the head usher, welcoming attendees to this very special and somber concert. Her presence and smiles provided such special qualities to those entering the church: hope for the future, welcoming as only a child can do with innocence and love. Jessica added such a specialness to this concert. Jessica performed these tasks with ease and comfort and great poise. She took direction well, understanding immediately what was being asked of her. Choir members, musicians and those attending the concert, were so taken with her. Jessica provided some salve to the wounds of the people of Charleston, something she didn’t even realize she did. The Choir was very grateful to this beautiful young lady and wish her great success in her future endeavors.

Farewell from your 2013 National American Miss North Carolina Princess, Niyah Marie Smith.
Wow! Being the 2013 Miss North Carolina Princess has been an experience like no other. From the moment I first arrived at the 2013 NAM pageant last year, I knew that I would forever be changed. I met the most amazing girls, had a great time, and met friends that would last a life time.
During this past year, I have been able to give back to my community and volunteer my time reading to young children at the Jordan Center, assist with the book mobile, travel to Charlotte, to work with the Teach Boys and Girls Success program, volunteer at the light the night walk for the leukemia and lymphoma society, meet the governor of North Carolina, march in the MLK parade, attend the North Carolina open calls and training sessions, and get to know my wonderful North Carolina sister queens.
My trip to the National Pageant in Anaheim, California was amazing! I got to meet girls from all over the US, go to Disneyland for the first time, tour Hollywood, and hang out with my new friends. I even made it to the top ten finalists. Not bad for my first nationals ever!
To each and every one of you, I want to say, shoot for the stars, no one can stop you from reaching your full potential, and to my successor, enjoy your year of reign, you will never be the same.
I am your 2013 Miss North Carolina Princess, Niyah Marie Smith.
