Who will be the new Miss Grand Lake?
With your help, the pageant committee hopes to answer that question when the Miss Grand Lake Scholarship Pageant is held on October 16.
The proud Grand Lake tradition is currently in its 40th year thanks to the continued faithful support of the businesses and citizens of Grove and the Grand Lake area.
Because of that love and support given over the years, organizers say it is truly “your” Miss Grand Lake Pageant.
The educational scholarship assistance made available through the pageant program enables some young women who might never have had the opportunity a chance to pursue a college degree. Last year, a local young woman contacted jeanne Whiteley who directs the pageant to volunteer to help with it because she had entered when she was a Grove High School senior in the 1980's. She received a scholarship at the pageant and that was the deciding factor to go on to college where she earned her degree.
In today's economy, this assistance is even more valuable and needed than ever before. Whatever we can do here changes lives and in turn those lives go on to change other lives as future teachers, doctors, businessmen and women and parents of the next generation who are America's future.
The Miss Grand Lake Pageant Committee is currently working on securing the Scholarship and Advertising funds for this years pageant. If you can help, Business or Individual Patron, any amount, large or small will help insure the continuation of Our Miss Grand Lake Scholarship Pageant.
