National American Miss South Carolina Teen Queen, Hunter Vaughn donated books to Livi’s Library. Livi’s Library is a book project that is designed to share gently used books who children who otherwise could not afford books of their very own. They collect gently used books that children have outgrown. Donations allow them to hold book fairs at local schools, provide bookcases and stock them monthly in various areas in Lancaster county, provide books to church mission programs, etc.
This project is in memory of Mary Olivia Pettit, 9 year old daughter of Bryan and Lisa Pettit, sister of Jory Pettit, who died March 22, 2009, of viral myocarditis. Livi had a great passion for learning through books. Even more, she had an incredible compassion for living things and her faith in the Lord was sure. The hope is this gift of sharing will impact others so they will know God’s love and grace as well.

Julia Rowland, 2014 Florida Jr. Teen Queen has had a busy year representing National American Miss. She had a blast during the holiday season volunteering with the Salvation Army spreading holiday cheer and giving back to her community. Julia also initiated Harvest for Heroes Outreach Project for her service project at nationals. The purpose of Harvest for Heroes Outreach Project is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of our Active Duty communities and provide volunteer opportunities for the residents of South Florida to express their appreciation to members of their Military. As a daughter of a retired Navy Captain and cousin of an Active Duty Army Soldier currently serving in Afghanistan, she understands what conditions the Military personnel are under and wanted to contribute by boosting our troops’ morale. With the wonderful support of her church’s congregation, Julia was able to produce over 500 care packages. She was shocked and overwhelmed to have received a beautiful plaque along with a letter thanking her for her care packages from the United States Army troops serving in Afghanistan. They even flew a flag over Bagram, Afghanistan in honor of Julia’s church. Julia also had an exciting weekend in Boca Raton representing NAM as the emcee at the American Girl Doll fashion show in support of the Palm Beach County Literacy Coalition.

Dear amazing contestants:
I have done so much since becoming Miss Georgia Junior Preteen Queen. I volunteered to play the harp at the DeKalb County festival, a back to school news expo and the Ronald McDonald House. It was so much fun meeting several public officials. I served food at Tour de Pink, a race that raises money for breast cancer. It was so much fun volunteering and spending time with elderly. I even let the elderly (including the men) try on my crown.
Being Miss Georgia has meant so much to me. I was proud to represent Georgia and I was so happy that Senator Isakson blogged that meeting me as Miss Georgia made his day. National American Miss has given me so much confidence and many opportunities. I hope it does the same for all of you.
I wish all of you the best of luck while you are competing. I hope you make many new friends, have a lot of fun and enjoy the experience. Always remember that you don’t need a crown on your head to be a queen.
Gabriela Norwood, Georgia Jr. Pre-Teen Queen
