TRUSSVILLE — The 2014 Ms. Senior Trussville Pageant is scheduled for Friday, June 13 at 5 p.m. at the Trussville Senior Activity Center on Cherokee Drive.
There will be at least six women contestants in the competition.
The Ms. Senior Trussville Pageant is a preliminary pageant to the Ms. Senior Alabama Pageant. Ladies are judged based on poise, talent, stage presence, their overall philosophy of life and interview.
Last year, 11 women competed in the pageant.
Morris resident Heidi Manley won the 11-woman pageant and was also named Ms. Congeniality.
The Ms. Senior Trussville Pageant was started in 2003. From 2003 until 2012, several Ms. Senior Trussville winners placed in the state competition: two Ms. Congenialities, one first runner-up and two Ms. Senior Alabama who placed in the top 15 and top 10 in Ms. Senior Nationals.
Ms. Senior Alabama, Inc. is an organization that honors women who have reached the “Age of Elegance,” 60 years or older. It’s a non-profit organization designed to enrich the lives of senior women while also allowing them to share their experiences, wisdom and interests with others.
A Pinson woman, Donna Shaw McGuffie, competed in the 2013 Ms. Senior America Pageant in Atlantic City, N.J., last year after winning the Ms. Senior Alabama Pageant.
