(No need to purchase any of my photos from Webshotes, rather, click on the thumbnail you desire, when the larger photo appears click on the "view full size" icon right below it. The photo should then open in a seperate internet page; at that point right click and save it or copy it. Not that I'm a pro photographer, but if you repost it anywhere, do give me photo credit!)


  1. hey its Jamie. where was Angelique? I was jsut wondering cause Cay was crowning the Miss. Also I heard it was Susan's last year, did she say who was taking over?? Great pics, I really wanted to go but I had work!

  2. Hey Jamie!

    Those are the two big questions... Angelique's absence was not mentioned, nor was Susan's replacement. Although, I didn't get a program book... so maybe it was addressed there, who knows?!


  3. hm thats very weird?? hope someone can shed some light on that for us! Its weird last year we had 5 girls for miss and it went down. It is going to be weird without Susan. Did they mention her resigning at all during the program?

  4. Yes, the program was very sentimental due to Susan’s resignation.

    I was also surprised that there were about 15 contestants for each Teen and Mrs., but so few Miss’. I know of lots of Miss Ohio local contestants who would probably have been interested, but probably didn’t know about it in time. This was my first year attending or paying attention to this system, so I’m just speculating…?


  5. Angelique wasn't at the state pageant because she broke her contract and competed in another pageant.

  6. Hi Abby,

    My name is Lindsey Gregg, and I too attended BGSU. Graduated in 2000. I was thrid runner up in the Mrs. Ohio International pageant. I was Mrs. Miami Valley, and I have to say that I had a wonderful time and plan on competing again. I was also awarded the Susan G. Botek Community Service Award for the oustanding work I contribute to DebRA of America This is the genetic skin disease that my son was born with. I came across your site doing a search for Kecia Pringle, the new Mrs. Ohio. She is a very special women, indeed! I am extremely happy for her. I look forward to hearing from you. Your site is great!

  7. Hi Lindsey,

    Thanks for leaving a comment; I always enjoy knowing who has stumbled across my blog, especially if they’re a fellow BGSU alum! Also, I was once Miss Miami Valley! :)

    Congratulations on your success at the International pageant! It was a very nice program and I’ve heard great things from a few contestants. Best of luck to your son and your work with the organization you mentioned.
