I have had the opportunity to be among the greatest of Fayetteville this year. From singing the national anthem at the SwampDogs game, entertaining at the Kiwanis Talent Show, serving cake with Mayor Robertson at the Festival of Yesteryear, singing at the Christmas Banquet for the volunteers of Cape Fear Valley Medical Center, riding in parades, visiting many pageants, and so much more.
To think this entire year has already passed me by makes me sad, but the memories and people that I now get to carry with me make it so worth it. I’m forever indebted to the pageant association and Fayetteville Dogwood Festival for the opportunities and support they have extended my way this year. There’s no greater experience for young women in Cumberland County than what this pageant provides.
I know the next woman to fill these shoes will be an incredible example for our community. She has a road ahead of her full of amazing moments. I am excited for her, whoever she will be.
With a grateful heart,
Miss Fayetteville Dogwood Festival 2017
