Beauty pageant titleholder Kelly Dillard is an activist at heart. Apart from working with various charities and non-profits in her community, the University of North Texas psychology student has also been a champion for children’s issues such as raising awareness about autism and bullying prevention. As part of her advocacy work, Kelly Dillard has volunteered much of her time as a mentor to young girls in the Miss Texas Lone Star Princess Program.
The Miss Texas Lone Star Princess Program connects young girls from age five to 12 with local pageant titleholders who serve as their mentors. The program introduces these girls to the ideals of the Miss America Organization and teaches them grace, etiquette, and poise; it also instills in them the importance of community service. The mentors are encouraged to take their Princesses to community projects and give talks to their schools about their platform issues.
The next Miss Texas Lone Star Princess Program will start in April of next year. Parents who are interested in signing their daughters up can visit the program’s event page at www.misstexas.org.
