Miss South Carolina Queens help at Open Calls. South Carolina Pre-Teen Queen Bailee Smith and South Carolina Princess Queen Anna-Grace Reep helped at the open calls in Columbia and Greenville. They welcomed all girl’s who attended and posed for pictures. Both queens were excited to talk to the girls about how exciting NAM is and how many friends they can make. The girls helped their state director, Matt Leverton, and had a great time meeting all the new girls.
Kimberly Cox, Tennessee Pre-Teen Queen, has been representing National American Miss well! She recently performed the role of Fannie in A Southern Christmas Carol with the Robertson County Players. Kimberly has been a member of this theatre group for 6 years, and loves singing and performing on stage. She was later invited to volunteer at a fundraiser pageant for Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Kimberly worked registration, organized contestants, and had the privilege to crown and award the winners.
During Valentine’s Season, Kimberly gave back to her community by visiting with residents at Springfield Heights with the United Way. She delivered Valentines with candy and played bingo. Kimberly is a proud representative for the United Way of Robertson County.
Some of Kimberly’s other exciting appearances include a recent trip to the State Capitol, where she met Governor Bill Haslam, and also attended the NAM Kentucky State open calls. At the open calls, Kimberly met many future contestants aspiring to gain confidence and leadership skills, just like she has. Kimberly is an involved 7th grader at Greenbrier Middle school. She is a 4.0 student, member of beta club, and student council. She mostly enjoys spending her time playing softball with her team, the Lady Cats.
Megan Ebert, National American Miss North Carolina Miss Queens says farewell.
My year as the National American Miss North Carolina is one that I will never forget. I was able to spend time and get to know some of my sister queens and other state royalty at open calls for NC and SC, as well as at Nationals.
Having the privilege of meeting our Governor Pat McCrory and the Burlington Mayor Ronnie Wall. I had a blast volunteering and helping raise funds for the Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure with two of my sister queens, as well as delivering bears and other personal items to the Ronald McDonald house for the families. I was able to enjoy a beautiful summer evening with some of sister queens at a Greensboro Grasshopper Baseball Game at their annual Princess Night. Nationals was an experience I will never forget. Placing in the top 10 at Nationals was a true blessing and the friendships made during that week will last a lifetime!
To my director Matt and his wonderful staff, thank y’all so much for all y’all have done for me and my family. It’s hard to believe that nine years ago I stepped foot on the National American Miss stage for the very first time as a shy pre-teen, and very soon I will stand on the same stage for the last time as a confident, growing young woman!
To every young lady who competes in National American Miss, no matter what age division your in or what state you reside in. Always remember that you are fearfully and wonderfully made, and you are beautiful just they way you are! Never given up your hopes and dreams, because if you can dream than you can achieve it!
I look forward to meeting all the NC contestants this week!!
Much love always,
Miss North Carolina

2012 Miss South Carolina Pre-Teen Queen Felicia McGill volunteered at a race sponsored by Doctor’s Care, the race promoted overall health awareness. She helped set out safety cones along the main road which were used to assist the runners with staying on course during the race. She also got to be a “traffic guard”, she held up a stop sign to make sure oncoming traffic didn’t turn onto the road where the participants were running. When runners fell behind and got off course Felicia helped guide them back onto the race route. The best part of all was she got to cheer the runners on and help encourage the runners that had fell behind in the race. After the last participant crossed the finish line she attended the awards ceremony. Runners thanked her for encouraging them, it was a rewarding feeling because she didn’t do it to be recognized. At the conclusion of the event Felicia helped pass out bottles of water, fruit and informational goody bags.
Carter Brown, 2012 North Carolina Jr. Pre-Teen Queen, looks back on her year as National American Miss Royalty.
“2012 was THE BEST YEAR OF MY LIFE!”… and I pray 2013 will be the same for YOU! June 30, 2012 was completely life changing! My family was so proud I was afforded the privilege of serving as the 2012 Miss North Carolina Jr. Pre-Teen!
This year, I have served with my church, the Ronald McDonald House, the Get Heeled 5K, the Great Glow Run and made appearances throughout NC. At NCCU, I escorted the Chancellor onto the football field at a nationally televised football game and announced the winners at the “Eddie” awards.
In addition to serving the community, I met 45 of the nations Jr. Pre-Teen superstars at the National Pageant! I proudly represented NC and made new friends from all over the U.S. I’m not sure who had more fun at Disneyland, me or my brother, but I will always have the “bragging rights” that I was the reason our family was able to experience Disneyland!
I am so appreciative of my loving and supportive family, Mr. Matt Leverton, the NAMily and my sweet “blonde bombshell” sister queens! I have loved spending time with ALL of you this year!
The life skills I have learned through NAM are PRICELESS! I encourage you to enjoy this weekend and EVERYTHING it has to offer! There can only be one winner on Saturday, but if you listen and learn, you will leave improved in ways you never could have imagined! NAM will be one of the best experiences of your life! Enjoy EVERY moment!
