I haven’t updated in a while in regards to Alexis’ beauty pageant. She recently won the title of Miss Virginia South side Outstanding Pre-teen, it’s a local city level title covering the Southern part of Virginia (Suffolk, Portsmouth). During her year long tenure, she will be expected to fundraiser, volunteer, participate in local community events for the city. We decided that we wanted to go forth and compete on the state level, Miss Virginia Pageant in the Pre-teen division. We finally got all the paperwork in, went on a practice interview class, scheduled for two stage preps this week, visiting a nursing home this weekend, along with more local community service for the food bank. Alexis has decided her “platform” will be regarding hunger. She will focus in on the community of Hampton Roads. Although we have gotten tremendous support with sponsors, the pageant itself is so expensive! Will update you more as we progress! We had a local fundraiser last weekend to raise money for the scholarship fund, along with the other winners in different divisions. Miss Portsmouth, Miss Portsmouth outstanding teen, Alexis Miss Virginia South Side pre-teen division and the little miss. Here is a picture of the 2010 reigning queens.
