Kate Peacock was born with a hole in her right eye. That hole caused her eye to stop growing when she was still in her mother’s womb, and has left her completely blind in her right eye.
For her platform, Kate has worked to raise awareness about eye diseases and created “Peepers Keepers” – an organization that helps children with pediatric eye disorders and diseases.
In addition, Kate has done a fabulous job traveling the state, speaking with school children about pursuing their dreams – often telling them if they work hard enough, they can accomplish anything!
From the FayObserver.com:
“If you work hard and give 100 percent, it will pay off,” Peacock said. “And, don’t believe that you can’t do something. There were people who told me that I would not succeed. I just became a little more determined and outspoken. It fueled my fires even more to push harder and prove them wrong.”
Junkies know it’s been a wonderful and rewarding year for Kate – and when she returns to Meredith College as a Junior, no doubt her experiences as Miss North Carolina will have prepared her for a career as an elementary school teacher – and perhaps one day, as a school principal. Further, as one of the younger Miss North Carolina winners in recent history, Junkies know Kate well poised for success – and that everyone who knows her, is #ProudAsAPeacock! 🙂
And now – Who do we think has the best chance at being named Miss North Carolina 2016?
