Congratulations to DeShawn Shepard, director of the Miss, Mrs. & Preteen Virginia and Mrs. Maryland International pageants.  She held a fantastic Valentine’s Day production, in which four dynamic women were  crowned in front of family and friends.  Three of these women, Miss Virginia International 2010, Mrs. Virginia International 2010 and Mrs. Maryland International 2010 will go on to compete in Miss International and Mrs. International respectively.  The national pageants will be held in Skokie, Illinois this July.   The beauties, with the help of the pageant’s wonderful supporters – Artistry by Hassana, Madison Donovan Group and Pageant Perks, DeShawn’s titleholders are definitely going to make an impact in 2010.  More about the new state queens.

The new Mrs. Maryland International 2010 is Angel McCoy, who represented Prince George’s County. Mrs. McCoy is a former two-time MAO local Maryland titleholder- Miss Howard County 2007 & Miss Chesapeake Bay 2008.  Angel is an avid supporter of the Special Olympics and was a top-ten semi-finalist in the 2008 Miss Maryland America pageant.

The new Miss Virginia International is Tamika Mills who represented Isle of Wight.  If you’re like me, you’ve never heard of Isle of Wight, VA.   I’ve since learned that Isle of Wight a county in the Hampton Roads area and one of the oldest county governments in the country.    Ironically, Tamika is a former MAO local titleholder as well – Miss Coastal Virginia 2009.  During the 2009 Miss Virginia pageant, she was a non-finalist talent winner

Second time around was a charm for the new Mrs. Virginia International, Heather Thompson.  Heather also competed in the 2009 Mrs. Virginia International pageant and competed this year as Mrs. Fredericksburg International.


The new Miss Preteen Virginia International is Kailee Delane Horvath.  Kailee represented Loudoun County.  Before winning Miss Preteen Virginia International, Kailee was National American Miss Virginia Junior Preteen.
