Celebrity Guest MISS VIRGINIA 2014

Apr

Miss Virginia 2014

We are pleased to announce that MISS VIRGINIA 2014, Courtney Garrett, will be our 2015 Celebrity Guest. Courtney Paige Garrett is an alumnus of Liberty University, graduating Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Communication for Advertising & Public Relations and a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance. She is a native of small town Pamplin, Virginia, where she grew up on a farm with her parents and two younger brothers, Austin and Ryan. Performance has been an aspect of Courtney's life for many years, one that has been fostered through her participation in the Miss America Organization. She held the title of Miss Virginia's Outstanding Teen 2009 and competed in the Miss Virginia Pageant for four consecutive years.

After finishing 1st runner up in the 2015 Miss America Pageant, Courtney's journey has rewarded her scholarships totaling over $70,000. Defying Disabilities is the platform issue which Courtney will bring throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia during her year of service. Her brother, Austin, has cerebral palsy and autism, which has inspired her to pursue advocacy for the disabled community. Their experiences have molded her vision of respect, understanding and, above all, inclusive environments. We welcome Courtney and thank the Miss Virginia Pageant for their continued spirited affiliation with NASSC! Courtney will be available for informal "meet 'n greets," and "selfies" during the festival, including Friday night's "Kid's Clinic".
