KIM PARRISH NAMED PRESIDENT OF MISS AMERICA’S OUTSTANDING TEEN
Miss America’s Outstanding Teen, Inc., a little sister to the Miss America Organization that promotes scholastic achievement, creative accomplishment, healthy living and community involvement for America's teens, has named TV fashion commentator and entrepreneur Kim Parrish as president. A former Miss West Virginia (1992), Kim is the creator of The Kim Parrish Collection clothing line on HSN and HSN.com. (see http://missamericasoutstandingteen.cmail3.com/l/333451/njiiritl/www.kimparrishcollection.com and http://www.maoteen.org/)
Kim Parrish has volunteered with the Miss America Organization for the past 15 years, including directing the Miss West Virginia’s Outstanding Teen competition and serving as a judge for the national finals in Orlando.
“I intend to help develop a strong financial foundation and expand national recognition for this outstanding organization and its participants,” says Kim. “In today’s fast-paced world, teens can’t afford to look to young Hollywood for role models. They need to find inspiration within themselves, their families, schools and community. Through its exceptional mentoring program, Miss America’s Outstanding Teen provides leadership and scholarship opportunities for teens, that will help them prepare for successful futures.”
