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.

Miss Florida Jr. Pre-Teen Carla Lombardo has been busy representing National American Miss.

January 15th, 2016

Carla Carla2 Carla3 Carla4 Carla5 Carla6 Carla7Miss Florida Jr. Pre-Teen Carla Lombardo has been busy representing National American Miss. From her appearances at Disney World to her appearance at Miss America Outstanding Teen that concluded with many pictures with the various state queens and Miss America 2014,  as well as her picture with Miss Georgia, the reigning Miss America, Carla has done her best to represent her state.

Carla has been active in activities such as Relay for Life at the local community center with senior citizens.  She donates baked goods twice weekly to the center where all proceeds go to the American Cancer Society for Relay for Life.  These funds were all raised by Carla and her leadership.  She baked when she had time and involved sponsors such as Gordon Food Services to donate boxes of cookies to sell.  We believe it was a great success!

Carla has also started her own initiative to fight illiteracy through her program that she named “readers make leaders”.  Starting with her 10th birthday where she asked for gently used or new books instead of gifts, to a large book drive at her school, she raised over 1000 books.  With the collaboration and effort of her brother, a boy scout, his troop, and their family and friends, she achieved her goal of building a small library for the children of an educational center, Tiny Kingdom in Homestead, Florida.  This was possible through “We Care of South Dade”, a non-profit organization that presented this center to her.  This center accomodates a large number of migrant farmworker’s children.  They were very much in need.  Carla reads to them for one hour once a week to get to know them better!

She also has participated in a Columbus day festival at a local farm where she appeared with Miss Homestead of the Miss America system and where she supported 4-H, a non profit organization for youth development.
