Jayde Kief (’12) Wins National Actress Title

Congratulations to Jayde Kief ('12), who recently won the National Jr. Teen Actress First Runner Up title at the 2014 National American Miss Jr. Pageant.    The Actress Competition is the most popular National American Miss optional contest.  Only State Queens, State Courts and State Actress Top Five winners are invited to compete for the title of National Actress. The National American Miss pageants are held for girls ages 4-18.  The pageant program is based on inner-beauty, as well as poise and presentation. Emphasis is put on the importance of developing self-confidence, learning good sportsmanship, and achieving personal goals.

“I’m very excited and humbled when I achieve my goals,” Miss Kief said, “National American Miss is not all about banners and trophies- but it is simply wonderful to reap the rewards of my hard work.  I study my craft every day, and feel so blessed to have earned this honor,” she added.
