When I moved to Raleigh a year and a half ago, I never
imagined how quickly it would become home. I became
comfortable with my job, made good friends and even knew
my way around the beltline! Loving the weather, people and
convenience to the beach, I didn’t think it could get any better
then this! But it did!
I was the chosen one to represent our capitol and now, my
hometown, of Raleigh…what an honor! I had such an
amazing year and I will never forget it… from singing in the
mall, to judging the famous “Pageant” theatre performance at
Theatre in the Park! I would be lying if I said it was a typical
“Year of Service!”
I have met so many giving and caring people this year and
they deserve to know how much they are appreciated!
Mr. Larry Stewart and Tricia Conrad- Belk’s Sponsor-I have
always felt like I looked my very best for every appearance!
Your generosity was beyond belief. Thank you!
Larry Stewart and Misty Clymer
Raleigh- Thank you so much for being a wonderful Carolina Princess, you were terrific! I couldn’t have asked
for a sweeter (or better named) Princess!
To the entire Miss Raleigh Board- Thank you for everything you do! Without generous people like you our
organization would not exist, and so many young women would not have the opportunity to be a part of such
a rewarding experience; you are all awesome!
Melissa- Thank you for your motivation at the gym and all the help with music throughout the year! You have
grace and style like no other; you go girl!!
Lisa- No more forgetting my crown, or long afternoons with children and no restrooms! I know you will miss
me! When I become famous, I will still remember you, don’t you worry!!! You have been a trip this year and I
have enjoyed every minute spent with you!
Candace- What can I say?? You are the older sister I never had. Your guidance and friendship means so much
to me. I am so happy to have met you and I know that we will be friends forever!
Mom, Dad and Ronnie- Thank you for being my traveling support team! I am so happy that we are close now.
There is nothing like having family around! Your love and support have made me into the confident woman
that I am today and I owe everything to you!! Thank you, I love you!
Dave- Are you tired of all this yet? I know that 5 years (maybe 6??) of pageants is a long time…you are so
patient! Thank you for always wanting the best for me. I love you with all my heart!
To the new Miss Raleigh- Enjoy every minute of your year, time really does go by so quickly. Best wishes for
you at Miss North Carolina this year.
