Pageants might be a big deal in South Carolina – but the job of Miss South Carolina is even bigger!
Lanie Hudson, Miss South Carolina 2014 knows that all too well! At Miss America, Lanie was given the Miracle Maker Award for raising the most funds for Children’s Miracle Network… And – it’s the third time in a row that the young woman wearing the Miss South Carolina sash earned the award (Ali Rogers and Brooke Mosteller won as well). CONGRATS LADIES!!!
In addition, Lanie’s platform is “Lanie’s Gift” – an organization she founded back in 2007 that partners with other organizations to spread awareness about organ and tissue donation. Check it out at LaniesGift.com.
And finally, Miss South Carolina serves as a spokesperson for “Palmetto Pride” – a state-wide program aimed at reducing litter in the state. That means, she travels into schools, talking to students about facts they may not know and ways they can help.
In an article inside TheState.com, Lanie says,
“As Miss South Carolina, it is a state platform to promote anti-littering and keeping South Carolina beautiful … and it’s been a lot of fun traveling around the state, especially to the middle schools because they really do care and are interactive with this topic,” Hudson said. “I think middle school students are just at that vital age when they can make a difference and influence their peers.
“It takes a long time for trash left on the roadside to go away,” she told the group. “If more people knew that, maybe they would think twice before littering.”
Yes, there may be a lot of sparkle in South Carolina – But the great news is, SC pageant girls are more than just a pretty face – They’re getting the work done. Which always translates into life-skills that serve you way beyond the crown.
