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
National American Miss North Carolina Teen Queen Megan Ebert has had an amazing year representing NAM.
Miss North Carolina Teen Megan Ebert enjoyed being able to spend one beautiful October Saturday morning and afternoon with fellow community members and a good friend of hers as well as led the Legs For Life walk to help raise money for her local hospital. She got to know her sister queen Naomi Whitehead as they served at the Ronald McDonald House and got to spend time with two adorable little girls as well. Megan was also able to spend more time getting to know her sister queens Abigail Satter and Carter Brown at the State Fair and being able to enjoy a Nascar race with the Faith Anne Yeley and Hannah Gold, thanks to Mr. Yeley. She can’t express the amazement and total joy she has felt throughout the entire week at Nationals in Anaheim, CA! Being able to spend time with her Carolina sister queen Casey Johnson and many more. And a huge Thank You to her mother for being there for her and being her #1 fan. She then went on to enjoy a good ole December Christmas parade representing National American Miss. To end the year of 2012, she was blessed and honored to have spent a weekend in SC cheering at Shrine Bowl with her fellow Bulldog cheerleaders as well as being able to make an appearance as the National American Miss NC Teen. 2012 was a good year and Megan feels truly blessed! She is looking forward to the blessings God has planned for her for 2013!”

Megan Ebert, Miss North Carolina Teen had the chance to deliver two cases of books to her local library, The May Memorial Library in Burlington, NC. The May Memorial Library is also linked to the Graham and Mebane Library. All of the books will be distributed to all three library’s.
Her first appearance as the Miss North Carolina Teen was to throw the first pitch at her local Burlington Royals baseball game. Megan got to have a picture made with their mascot Bingo!
In line with Mrs. Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign, Megan’s community involvement centered around encouraging children to become more fit. Today, in America, nearly one in three children is overweight or obese.
In line with Mrs. Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign, Megan’s community involvement centered around encouraging children to become more fit. Today, in America, nearly one in three children is overweight or obese. According to Mrs. Obama, “The physical and emotional health of an entire generation is at stake.” Megan’s experiences as an athlete have taught her the importance of exercise and proper nutrition. Research shows that physical activity stimulates the brain which directly affects success both in the classroom and in life.
She had an amazing time visiting local preschools and reading, exercising and visiting with them. They talked about different ways of exercising and staying fit, and how to eat healthy. She was so pleased to see one center with a vegetable garden! The children were so enthusiastic to tell her all about what they were growing and the different ways they liked their vegetables prepared. Her visits always included some group dancing and tumbling, which they really enjoyed, as did Megan!
She also participated in the local Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation walk for a cure. As juvenile diabeties is sometimes linked with childhood obesity, she felt this was in line with my project. She thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful afternoon, proudly walking with friends and families of those affected by the disease, while raising awareness.
Her efforts will not stop here. She is a girl who is striving to be a role model by making fitness a prioity in my life, for a stonger, smarter and healthier future.
Get ready for the best year of your life! Serving as NAMiss South Carolina Jr Teen has been absolutely amazing! It was such an honor and a privilege, an experience I will never forget. The opportunities to show God’s love and bring smiles to so many faces was such a blessing to me.
I am so excited to meet all of you! This weekend will be one you will never forget. Last year I stood in your shoes, in awe of this whole situation, and even more, that I was a part of this amazing adventure. And yes, oh so excited and more than a little nervous! Relax and enjoy every minute. NAM is truly the experience of a lifetime! If there is something I can do to help make this weekend more pleasant for you, please don’t hesitate to ask.
To my successor, you are going to have a blast this year. Get ready for the best year of your life! Serving as NAMiss South Carolina Jr Teen has been absolutely amazing! It was such an honor and a privilege, an experience I will never forget. The opportunities to show God’s love and bring smiles to so many faces was such a blessing to me. I was able to visit with the elderly, see our brave soldiers off as they went to fight for our freedom in Afghanistan, ride in parades, meet the Governor and encourage pre-school students to eat healthy and exercise, promoting my platform “Fitness for the Future”. It is truly magical to see their excitement when meeting a “princess”. You will find it a blessing to reach out and make a difference in someone else’s life. Traveling to Nationals in California and representing our great state was truly an honor. I met an amazing group of new friends. Girls who were a lot like me……smart, enthusiastic, kind and beautiful inside and out!
To all my North and South Carolina sister queens, I know we will always have a special NAM bond. Mr. Matt, you are the best, and Chick-Fil-A will always make me think of you! Ms. Michelle thanks for making open calls so much fun and yes, I did bring my tide to go pen with me this weekend! To my friends and family, thanks for being such an awesome support system. I love you all!
Its hard to believe that my year as your National American Miss Kentucky Jr. Teen 2009 is over. Being the regining queen for the state this year has opened so many doors for me. I enjoyed volunteering, being visiting royalty and going to nationals. I made so many friends this year and made memories I’ll never forget. I would like you to know that I’ve stood in your shoes four times before, I know what its like to be here for the first time and being here for your fourth, the excitement and the dream never goes away. Being crowned was a dream come true. If I can give you any advice, all I can say is have fun! This experience will change your life, for the better. I hope this weekend turns out to be the way you always dreamed and I hope you and your family take this weekend and grow together. Always remember, if it is YOUR dream it is always worth TRYING to achieve! Have a great weekend, and feel free to ask me anything! See you soon!
