The pageant is slated for Sunday, January 29th in Blanton auditorium. The young women will be judged on an interview which took place last Saturday with 5 different judges. Chelsea was one of those judges. Then during the pageant, each girl will be asked to model a fun fashion, a fitness outfit and an evening gown. They will also perform a talent of their choice.
Chelsea, who directed and emceed the pageant last year will host and emcee again. She has delegated the opening number to Lindsey Gladhill a dancer from Boiling Springs, NC.
Miss Gregory has found that doing pageants is a wonderful opportunity for young women to hone their public speaking, modeling, and organizational skills. But her real passion has been realized in helping other girls fullfill their dreams of wearing a crown. She truly enjoys putting together the show, working with the girls, and judging. Chelsea has competed in the Miss USA, Miss America and Miss United States systems.
