Meredith Boyd, Mrs. Georgia International 2008: Mere’s Miracles!

Bells will be ringing this holiday season as thousands of runners and walkers hit the nation’s pavements, pathways and parks this winter to fight arthritis, the nation’s most common cause of disability. My dearest friend Angela Smith, Mrs. North Dakota International will be one of those people, tying jingle bells to her shoelaces to participate in the Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis, a 5K fun run/walk to benefit the Arthritis Foundation! Her team is called “Mere’s Miracles” in honor of my quest to help those who suffer everyday from this disease. Thank you so much Ang and your girls!

And YOU can help, too! ‘Tis the season for giving! Won’t you sponsor Mere’s Miracles to help raise funds to fight arthritis? Arthritis affects more than 46 million Americans, including 300,000 children, costing the U.S economy over $128 billion annually. The Arthritis Foundation needs our help. Please visit Mere’s Miracles Web page to join the team or make a secure, online contribution to help raise the needed funds for the Arthritis Foundation’s mission to prevent, control and cure arthritis.

Jingle, Jingle, Jingle … A little change makes a lot of cents!

First comes her Master’s degree in drama -– and then comes her dream of becoming a Broadway performer. Julianna Erdesz is this year’s Miss Nevada, competing against 51 other contestants in the Feb. 3 Miss America pageant at the Planet Hollywood Theatre for the Performing Arts, and she will be showcasing her vocal skills in the talent portion of the contest.

The 24-year-old former University of Nevada-Reno student made the Dean’s List while there. Since then, she’s gone on to the American Musical and Dramatic Academy with a $20,000 audition-based scholarship and also at the New School University. It’s really been a case of putting herself through college earning a $10,000 Government Millennium scholarship at the same time as being Miss Carson City!

Beauties of America Pageant – Official Blogspot: a busy weekend…

Hey BOA Fans, its been a busy weekend in the South for me. I was requested at the United States preliminary as special guest last weekend… I was asked to Emcee the pageant as well as Entertain (a little thing you didnt know about me is… I am a trained Opera/Broadway singer, so anytime I can sing or perform, I’m your girl!!) The Pageant kicked off with over 15 contestants vying for the Junior, Teen, and Miss titles of Western Carolina United States, which will take them to the Miss South Carolina United States Pageant in March of 2009!! The pageant resulted in crowning Junior Teen Western Carolina: Sutton Metz; Teen Western Carolina: Mae-Ann Webb; and Miss Western Carolina: Britnie Turner. It was well done and a success! I sang a classic Judy Garland (Southern Song) : Rock-a-bye-Your-Baby-With-A-Dixie-Melody – I had a blast! (pictures to come)

Next…

I was honored to judge a preliminary pageant for the Dream Girls USA system in Kings Mountain, NC – really close to my hometown of Charlotte, NC. The pageant was a lot of fun with a really cool category for the upcoming holiday, HALLOWEEN COSTUME of choice!! It was fun to see the contestants pick out different varieties of costumes and branch out a little bit from the “typical” pageant everyone is used to! I have never seen such professional little girls in my life! Serious talent there! Future Beauties of America’s, Miss America’s and Miss USA’s right in front of my eyes! 🙂 Thanks to Misty Carson and Jeree’ Current for having me!

I have many more appearances scheduled in the next months. Some in Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina. Also, I will be getting my official headshots done with my crown and sash in the next few months…

Much Love,
Katie-Britt Greenway
America’s 20s
