HIGH POINT, N.C., Sept. 18, 2009 – Kenzalia Bryant-Scott, a sophomore majoring in exercise science at High Point University, has truly had some crowning achievements this year ? not only has she served as Teen Miss North Carolina East Coast USA 2009, but she now has plans to compete in the Miss North Carolina USA Pageant.
Bryant-Scott, a native of Manassas, Va., hopes to compete for the title in November. First, though, Bryant-Scott is working at getting sponsors to help support her on her quest.
For Bryant-Scott, competing in another pageant isn’t about the title to her – it’s about the wonderful experience itself ? she had an exciting year serving as Teen Miss North Carolina.
“I had to not only represent the state of North Carolina, but also the city of High Point,” she says. “I completed a great deal of volunteer work, including going to a Christian nursing home to play bingo, and to help out with arts and crafts. I also attended a charity event for a local adoption agency.”
The experience, she says, was amazing.
“The lessons I’ve learned will last a lifetime,” Bryan-Scott says. “I hope to continue my work and mission throughout the whole state, and hopefully the country.”
