Miss Maine Welcomes New Co-Executive Directors
On Saturday, June 21st, Crooker Theatre in Brunswick played host to the Miss Maine Scholarship Pageant. Not only did the audience witness the crowning of two new titleholders, Audrey Thames as Miss Maine 2014 and Madeline Jarvis as Miss Maine’s Outstanding Teen 2014, but also the appointment of new Co-Executive Directors, Julia Furtado and Susie Stauble Pepper. The announcement was met with a standing ovation as former Executive Director, Gene Gagne, presented the two with congratulatory bouquets of flowers. No strangers to the pageant world, both women are former titleholders themselves, Furtado as Miss Maine 2011 and Stauble Pepper as Miss Maine 2009.
In addition to their new roles, Furtado works for two doctors and plans to apply to medical school down the road, while Stauble Pepper is a mother of two who sings professionally with Tony Boffa and Jim Ciampi.
With new leadership comes a new vision that hopefully will attract more contestants, sponsors and volunteers. With an emphasis on education and talent, the Miss America Organization rewards its titleholders with scholarships, so that academic opportunities and professional training can become a reality.
