2014 Miss North Carolina Pre-Teen Nikya Hightower volunteered with the Child Advocacy Center. She volunteered for the Child Advocacy Center as they launched their 8th annual American Girl Fashion Show for a good cause. Nikya volunteered several days which included helping the girls with fittings, and two days of the show while the girls waited to hit the runway. She volunteered along with recently retired first female judge of Cumberland County, North Carolina, Beth Keever. She really enjoyed talking with the girls before the show. 2014 Miss North Carolina Jr. Pre-Teen Amaris was a participant in the fashion show.
Nikya Hightower, 2014 Miss North Carolina Pre-Teen has been busy around town! Nikya was very excited to participate in the Martin Luther King Jr. parade and she really enjoyed her ride! She also enjoyed cheering on everyone as they crossed the finish line while volunteering for the ALS walk at Methodist University in her hometown of Fayetteville, NC. She was joined by her sister queen 2014 North Carolina Jr. Pre-Teen Queen Amaris Shipman.
It has been a wonderful journey being your Miss North Carolina Pre- Teen. I have met so many nice people along the way. Receiving my Letter of Recognition from the Mayor at a city hall meeting was really a great feeling. I have enjoyed every moment of volunteer work and charity events that I have been a part of. The March of Dimes, the ALS Walk, The Child Advocacy Center, “Rip the Runway” held in Spring Lake, North Carolina which was a kids fashion show hosted by the Chamber of Commerce, to benefit the Boys and Girls Club, “Kids Rock The Runway” for North Carolina Fashion Week held in Fayetteville, my hometown, to benefit Meals on Wheels, the Martin Luther King Jr. Parade, and donating the books and school supplies to my community church.
I had a great time at Nationals and met lots of new friends that I still keep in touch with. That was my first time in California and I really had a blast.
I would like to thank NAM for all your help and support, and I would like to wish my successor the very best. It has been a great experience to serve my community and to represent the Great State of North Carolina.
Love to All,
Your 2014 Miss North Carolina Pre-Teen
