Thank you to all of my sponsors, family, and friends for all of their support, financially, and emotionally during this pageant season. And for all of the love and kind words given not only during this time but every single day of my life. Without you this dream of being Miss America wouldn't be possible.
The Board also deserves a huge round of applause for all of their time, patience and caring. Words of advice and the support that is within this family are not taken for granted and I do realize how blessed and lucky I am to have them in my life. and along this journey with me.
To Sally Sparkles, Thank you for an amazing year of service and I look forward to some day being your sister!!

Miss Gay Missouri America 2013,
SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER MGMA BOARD NEWSLETTER
As I sit and try to write this newsletter I am filled with so many emotions. When we took over Miss Gay Missouri America we wanted a great contest and great contestants. In the past, we have produced award wining production numbers and received numerous promoter of the year awards. Indeed, MGMA is very proud of its past. Well this year, both happened . We received Best Commemorative Program and Best Opening Production presented to us by Sally Sparkles final night at Miss Gay America 2014. What an honor and thank you to everyone who made both our program and opening number a reality to receive the recognition they deserved. Hard work pays off!
Sally told me on final night after we received the award that once she saw all of the formers on stage and the MGMA sisterhood that took place she knew then it would be hard for another pageant to match that. Our beautiful program came from formers selling ads and getting them in early so the book could be put together in a timely manner. It showed that time was taken this year, and all of the participation in the opening and being together for the common goal of making MGMA the best paid off. So this year lets do it again!
We could not be prouder of our two MGMA representatives making Top 10 at Miss Gay America 2014. First Alternate Adria Andrews breezed into a top 10 slot and placed 6th. She was amazing and a joy to watch. Miss Gay Missouri 2013 Christa Collins , soared into Top 10, won best all over score in Solo Talent and secured a placement of 2nd alternate to MGA. It was a great week of competition these two contestants represented MGMA in stellar fashion. The MGMA Alumni is so proud of both of you. It was a tough contest and you both showed what the Show Me State had to offer. You both had a strategy , a plan and a formula and it was obvious, and paid off big time. Congratulations to Jessica Jade on her win she will indeed be a great Miss Gay America and we will see her in April at MGMA.
I have had the great honor to be at all preliminaries to MGMA 2014 thus far and what a great group we have evolving to compete. More prelims coming up and I encourage anyone wanting to be MGMA to get a package together and enter a prelim and bring it.
