Get to Know Miss Texas Pre-Teen Cover Girl Caroline Wells!

Wow, I can't believe it has been a whole year already. I feel as if just yesterday I was crowned the National American Miss Texas Cover Girl. This has been the most incredible experience of my entire life. I have had so many opportunities to learn and to serve . I have conquered my fears. I have gained courage. I have learned more than I could have ever imagined, and I have made many new friends.
National American Miss has helped me so much with the Salvation Army . Right after I was crowned I immediately raised a lot of money and awareness for the Salvation Army.  I was featured on Good Morning America.  My story was picked up in over 10 different local news stations across the country.  I have raised over $26,000 for my local Tyler Salvation  Army.  I was able to walk the  Red carpet  with Rhianna and Jim Parsons at the  movie premiere of HOME.  I was even  able to host a hometown premiere for the kids of the Salvation Army with concessions stand treats . The author of HOME Ada…

In Loving Memory of Miss Texas Princess Cover Girl Harper Howard

Harper likes toys with lights, instrumental music, shinny beads and the wind in her hair.Harper has taught us about patience, communication and love.Patience we thought we had but realized we didn’t .Communication we thought we knew but now know it’s about more than just words.Love we thought we felt and understood but now know it is an unexplainable experience you hope everyone has.All of which are encompassed in Time...something more valuable than anyting you could purchase or find.For without TIME you cannot learn to be PATIENT, understand COMMUNICATION or feel LOVE.
As a National American Miss Texas Cover Girl Princess Harper embodied HOPE, spread through, and Run4Hope benefiting seizure research and awareness.  Harper's final gift to this world was the donation of her organs to further scientific research for CDKL5, Seizures, and other rare diseases.

Get to know Miss Texas Angelica Alcala-Herrera!

Dear NAMily,
Being given the opportunity to represent my community, my city, and my state twice as your Miss Texas 2015 and Miss Texas Teen 2012 has been my greatest honor, and I will never forget the amazing memories I have made along the way.
Throughout this year I was able to experience and achieve so many exciting things – I attended 8 state pageants where I met so many new friends and sisters from around the country and left a little bit of Texas everywhere I went!
I had the pleasure of donating to the children of MD Anderson Cancer Center the books, learning tools, and coloring supplies collected from the contestants that competed in the National American Miss Texas 2015 pageant.Through my non-profit organization, Angels Daydreams, I was able to make special visits to the pediatrics department of MD Anderson to share precious times, laughter, joy, and smiles with all of the children!
The highlight of my reign was hosting my very first charity gala event through my non-profit o…

Get to Know Miss Texas Jr. Teen Justice Thompson!

After starting my journey with National American Miss in 2009, I never would have guessed I would be your 2015 Miss Texas Jr Teen.My year has been full of excitement, adventure and lots of travel. After placing top 10 at Nationals I came back home only to head to Florida to achieve my Cheerleading dream and covered most of Texas with my FFA Show Team. And while the travel was fun, helping out close to home was what meant the most. Volunteering with our local food pantry and even making Sundaes for the residents at an assisted living facility.Serving my community was so fulfilling and crown or not I will continue to strive towards making a difference. So many people played such an important role in helping me to capture the title of Miss Texas Jr Teen. Steve, Kathleen, Tiffany and all the NAM Staff, thank you for permanently changing my life. I will never forget everything National American Miss did for me. My sister queens, it has been a crazy but fabulous ride together & I wouldn'…

Featuring Miss Maryland Danielle Hardy!

My incredible journey with National American Miss started in 2009 when I was just 15 years old. When my mom took me to the open call, I knew that this was a great organization. That year, I was called back as a state finalist and have been a part of this organization ever since! NAM has seen me in some of the most important years of my life: 15 (Jr. Teen), 17 (Teen), and 21 (Miss). National American Miss has taught me so much and has increased not only my love for public speaking, but also my self-confidence. I have made so many friends over the years through National American Miss state and national pageants and I am eternally grateful.
This year, my life changed forever as I was crowned your National American Miss Maryland 2015! It was a dream come true as the crown was placed on my curls and the letters of my beloved state of Maryland placed across my heart. Throughout my year as your Maryland miss queen, I was blessed to be featured on the front page of a newspaper, participate i…

Four years ago my journey began with National American Miss in order to overcome shyness. Through hard work, determination, faith, and perseverance I was honored to capture the title of the 2015 Miss Texas Pre-Teen. I never could have imagined what this year would bring to me and my family!
A few of the numerous highlights of my year include volunteering at the Lighthouse for the Blind of Fort Worth, rockin the runway at the DFW teen fashion show and participating in the Grapevine and Plano parade of lights! My favorite memorieswerealways captured when I was with my sister queens, I had such a fun year full of many laughs. Of course another highlight this year included Nationals in California, I loved getting to know all of the other contestants from across the country. It was truly an unforgettable experience to represent the beautiful state of Texas!

Featuring Miss Texas Pre-Teen Jianna Garcia

6 years ago I set foot on a National American Miss Stage for the very first time. Just moments before, I cried that I wanted to go home and my Mom told me “Let’s finish what we started and if you don’t ever want to do another pageant again we won’t”.Well, needless to say I dried my tears, put a smile on my face and have now spent half my life as a NAM Girl and wouldn’t have it any other way. Winning the title of Miss Texas Pre-Teen for Division 1 was a dream I did not expect to come true. I am honored to have had the opportunity to represent the great state of Texas.My parents and family have been a constant source of support and I know none of this would have been possible without them. I am so very grateful to them for all the hours of travel, prep, worry and cheering at the top of their lungs at every event….We tend to be a loud bunch! It’s important to me to be a Queen with a purpose and my partnership with the Denton Hunger Coalition this past year has made me stronger in my convic…
