Judges with the newly crowned Miss Memphis Princess and Miss Shelby County's Outstanding Teen
Saturday, November 27, 2010
What an honor it was today to judge 13 beautiful, talented, articulate, and poised young ladies as they vied for the titles of Miss Memphis Princess and Shelby County's Outstanding Teen. The production was first class, and I was inspired by the hope for change and zest for life these contestants conveyed. Congratulations to Jocelynn Jordan, 2011 Miss Memphis Princess, and Grace Burgess, 2011 Shelby County's Outstanding Teen. You two are wonderful representatives of our city and county. Also, congratulations to Ivy Depew, 2011 Miss Memphis, and Jill Brooks, 2011 Miss Shelby County.

My weekend kicked off on Thursday when my husband and I judged the Memphis City Schools Think Show! at Georgia Avenue Elementary School in downtown Memphis. The talented kids treated us to a Blues Music Show, an Al Green performance, great artwork, and reports on famous Memphis natives Elvis Presley, Cybil Shepard, and Aretha Franklin. We were joined at the school by fellow judge Brittany Fitzpatrick, Miss Tennessee International 2011 first runnerup. The three of us had a wonderful time with the kids and were honored to be part of the event.

On November 12, I will be a special guest at the "Tinsel and Tiaras" event at the Memphis Busy Womens' Expo. Gather your girlfriends and come out to the Memphis Agri Center and treat yourself to a night of shopping and pampering. On the morning of November 13, David and I will join Bobbie Marie Gregg, Miss Tennessee International, and Randi Strong, Miss Teen Tennessee International, at the Alzheimer's Memory Walk at Autozone Park in downtown Memphis. My grandmother, Ruth Porter, was stricken with this disease, so I will be participating in her memory.
