Ella’s Final Sponsor Visit

I want to take a minute to thank my sponsor,  The BLVD Tavern.  It has been an amazing year. With your help, I was able to experience so many fun and rewarding things during my reign as Little Miss Princess. I have made memories that will last a lifetime. So a BIG thank you to The BLVD Tavern for your support!

Open Door

On Thursday, August 25, I was able to attend Open Door Pantry with our Miss Candidate. We had a great time. We helped stock shelves, check out the clients, and answered questions. It is such an amazing organization and I am so glad we were able to help them.

Word from the Carol Swenson Scholarship Recipient

I am so incredibly honored to be the first recipient of the Carol Swenson Memorial Scholarship.

The Inver Grove Heights Scholarship Program is a nonprofit organization that I have been part of for a long time. This summer, I took on a bigger role in the organization as the social media director.

The Inver Grove Heights Scholarship Program has given me so much and continues to allow me to grow as an individual. I am so thankful that I am able to be part of such an amazing organization and offer young men and women the opportunities that were once offered to me.

The late Carol Swenson was the treasurer of this amazing program and I am beyond grateful to be recognized in her name. Carol was a true symbol of leadership, hard work, and dedication. I thank her family for seeing these qualities in me, as she was a huge mentor to me and I strive to impact lives the way she was able to.

Woodbury Coronation

On Monday, August 22nd my royal sisters and I brought our IGH Ambassador program candidates to the Woodbury Coronation. It was a mix of emotions as we are really going to miss the current court.  It was a lot of fun getting to know all of them.  However, we are so excited for the newly crowned ambassadors of Woodbury and know they are going to do a great job!  Thank you to the new court for letting us share your special night with you!

On  Saturday, August 20, 2022, my royal sisters and I spent the day in Hudson Wisconsin for Pepperfest! It was a really fun event. We started the day with breakfast, which was delicious! We got to see other royalty and be in the parade. We also got Pepperfest bandanas! I even got pepper earrings!

Kick off Dinner

On Wednesday August 17th, the Inver Grove Heights Scholarship Program hosted their annual Kick Off Dinner. At the Kick Off Dinner, everyone got the chance to formally meet our candidates and see their “all about me records”. There was a lively dessert auction and a silent auction as well. It was really great to see everyone there and catch up with people we haven’t seen in a long time. I would like to give a huge thank you to everyone who helped put this event together. Without your hard work and dedication it would not have been possible

Safety Camp

My royal sisters and I went to the parks and recreation safety camp at the Veterans Memorial Community Center.  We had the privilege of handing out awards to the children.  The children also got lots of goodies with their awards. It was so fun to be a part of this event. It brought back the fun memories of when I used to participate in safety camp.

Miss Princess 3rd Service Project

For my final service project,  I did a feminine hygiene product drive benefitting Neighbors Inc in South St Paul.  I coordinated with Knowlans to be a collection point for the products and Captive Images for any cash donations. Thank you to both of them.  After the products were donated, I separated them into sets of 10 and put them in baggies. I collected enough in products and money to create 94 10 packs of products, which weighed 15 pounds, that will be distributed at Neighbors.  Thank you to everyone who donated.

Miss Princess 3rd Sponsor Visit

Today I went in for my final sponsor visit with Heartland Credit Union. I have had such a fun time this year, thanks to their support of our program. It made me happy that they were excited to see me when I walked in the door.  To show my thanks, I brought them cookies and a thank you card. Thank you again Heartland Credit Union staff for all of your support during my candidacy and throughout my year. I truly appreciate them for all they do.
