The Miss Delaware Scholarship Organization has changed the lives of thousands of former contestants, titleholders, volunteers, and families in its 74 year history.
Our experiences shape our lives and for me, competing in Miss Delaware formed a lifelong group of friends and dedication to community service and education.
What a great experience! My journey as the MDOT has provided many opportunities that have boosted my self-esteem, confidence, and public speaking skills.
I look back at my year of service, and it is incredible to see how it molded me into the person I am today. Most of all, I’m touched by the lifelong friendships made.
The Miss Delaware Scholarship Organization has played such a significant role in my life, providing me with educational opportunities, a career path, and lasting friendships. My year as Miss Delaware served as a launching pad for my career in broadcast television and non-profit marketing- two passions I discovered while making Miss Delaware appearances and working as an advocate for my platform, Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness and Advocacy.
Miss Delaware offered me the opportunity to fully connect with my state and its proud people. It also opened my eyes to life’s possibilities!
Becoming Miss Delaware 1999 changed my life. Having the opportunity to build so many lasting relationships, as well as earning a scholarship that helped me pay off my student loans helped me become focused, driven, and successful. I grew as an individual by being able to interact with the great people of Delaware. I attribute the Miss Delaware program for allowing me to learn the skills that have helped me throughout my life as a professional woman, wife, and as a mother. I am forever grateful for what this program gave me, it truly shaped who I am.
My year as Miss Delaware grew my passion for public service and provided me with several opportunities to meet local, state, and federal officials. It completely transformed me into the woman I wanted to become and opened the door to my career with the Delaware State Senate.
The Miss Delaware Organization has changed my life in more ways than I could have ever imagined. The lessons I learned, the confidence I gained, and the friends that I met because of this organization… it’s truly priceless.
My participation in the Miss Delaware Organization not only gave me experiences and friendships to last a lifetime, but also helped steer my future toward a passion for community service and youth development. I will always be grateful for the years and people that influenced my life as a result of being a contestant in the Miss Delaware Pageant.
This organization completely shaped the person I am today. I feel so lucky to have been a part of this sisterhood of incredible women.
