The Miss Mohawk Valley pageant the natural “next step” for the organization founder, who had lived in Rome her entire life and previously served as titles such as Miss Oneida County, Miss Finger Lakes, and Miss Salt City. After 11 years and 8 different titleholders, the original director passed the executive position on to a new director. Other than expanding the region of eligibility to include Schenectady County, the seamless transition allowed for the 12th Miss Mohawk Valley pageant to go off without a hitch, and will allow for many more to come. She passed the torch after just one year, but the Miss Mohawk Valley title is in good hands.
