Miss Congeniality: Christina Todd (1997)

Alexandra LaForce, the first Miss Ohio Teen USA to win Miss Teen USA in 2005.

We have enjoyed a successful program over the past few years and here are some testimonials of what professionals, contestants and family members, and titleholders have to say.

Listen to what some business professionals have to say . . .

You offer each of the young ladies an opportunity of growth and success in many areas. Thank you. Our community is looking forward to a long and strong relationship with you in the years to come.

It was a pleasure to again be a major sponsor of the Pageants. The production is first class all the way. Proctor Productions, LLC. instills strong values in all of the young women who participate. I am sure the girls leave a much better person for entering.

As you are aware, I attend many pageants every year on behalf of our magazine . . . Let me commend you on your first-rate production. It was gratifying to see how much care was taken throughout the even to ensure an outcome of total fairness and impartiality for all who participated. Lastly, thank you for your total professionalism and boundless talent to direct such a successful state pageant.

It is a massive undertaking to put together such a professional event, but Melissa Proctor Pitchford does it with very high ethical standards and class. People come from all over the country to be involved.

On behalf of the entire staff of the theater, I sincerely thank you for bringing such a first-class event to our venue. You and your staff are a pleasure with which to work and are professional in all aspects of the event production.

As a volunteer during the event, my perspective allows me to see the interaction of the leadership, staff, judges, and contestants. Rarely have I seen MORE commitment to integrity, fairness, grace and class.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for allowing me to be a part of the Miss Michigan USA and Miss Ohio USA pageants. Being in my business, I have seen many pageants, but non have been quite as organized as these. I can't imagine why any young lady wouldn't want to be a part of something so fabulous.

This year, having served as a judge for the pageant, I have an even greater respect and admiration for the effort that goes into making the pageant the spectacular production that it obviously has become.

The prestige the pageant delivers has left an indelible mark on our community. From community leaders to those visiting our city, I have heard nothing but high marks for the pageant. I want to extend my thanks, appreciation, and congratulations for a fine event.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of the pageant. I had the time of my life. Your show was by far one of the best. I would love to be a part of your organization for years to come.

You and your organization are a class act. I can see why you received the Director of the Year award.


Listen to what contestants and their families say about the program . . .

First of all, I just want to say . . . what a wonderful production. This was my first year and I was very impressed with every aspect of the organization. You guys are doing a wonderful job!

Thank you for running a beautiful and professional pageant! It was everything we expected and more. What a learning experience for my daughter!!

I would like to take a moment to thank all of the staff for helping all of us girls the pageant weekend. Thank you for all of the time and effort you put into making the pageant happen. I had the time of my life!

I wanted to thank you for the opportunity I had to be in the pageant. It was the first pageant I have done, and it was a truly wonderful learning experience. I learned a lot about myself while preparing for the pageant, and also about what I want to do now for the future.

Thank you so much for all of your hard work in directing the pageants. I know it must be a tough job keeping so many women organized, together and scheduled! Every moment was filled with excitement, challenge and fun people.

I know it takes a great deal of time, effort and expertise to organize the pageants. You do a marvelous job. The event is professionally executed and wonderfully entertaining.

I wanted to say thank you for such a wonderful weekend. It will be an experience that we will always remember. The production was unbelievable. I thought we were at the Miss USA pageant!

I just wanted to say that this was our second year at state and it was an absolutely fantastic show! I couldn't believe how beautiful the stage looked, especially with all the girls on it! Hats off to you and your crew for a job well done.

A special thank you to all the chaperones and volunteers. I know they worked very hard and I was grateful for all of their help and support. I learned a lot about myself and will use that in the future! Thank you for this opportunity . . . I can't wait to come back next year!

I have been to quite a few Miss USA preliminaries in other states. None of them have even come close to being as well run or as professional as yours. Kent and Felicia are fantastic and together you all made my first pageant experience the best it could be.

I would have NEVER in a million years thought that I would be up on a stage in front of people in my swimsuit. When I got out on that stage after practicing with everyone, I realized that I did have confidence and I'm so happy that you guys at the pageant helped me to find it. I just wanted to thank you for that.


Here is what some past titleholders have to say . . .

I just wanted to take some time to thank you and tell you how much I appreciate everything that you do and have done for me. You're the best! I can't imagine what I would do without you!

Thank you over and over for your warm hearts. I always felt truly welcome in your presence or home. You helped make this past year one I'll never forget.

Thank you so much for your hospitality and generosity. I couldn't ask for a more caring State Director.

I can't even begin to thank you for everything! This year has been so incredible, and I had so many memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you for all the time and dedication you put into this program and into me. I will miss you and love you very much!

I am so glad to have this experience and to have met you and gained so many new friends.

I had so much fun at Miss USA! Thank you for all the preparation and for being the best director, but also a friend. I'm so glad God brought you into my life and I'm looking forward to a great rest of the year.

I am so excited to see what the future holds, but no matter what, I will walk away with a new friend!

Where do I begin? Thank you for everything. Thank you for being the greatest director as well as a friend. You have done more for my life than you'll ever know.

Thank you for producing such a well organized pageant. I have thoroughly enjoyed my reign.

Thank you so much for all of your love. I couldn't be happier with my year. It's more than I ever dreamed it could be. I will miss being your queen and daughter.

Thank you for believing in me. Out of all of the incredible things that you do, that has meant the most. Every woman who has the opportunity to become your titleholder will be forever changed for the better because of it. Thank you.

You have shared so many meaningful words of advice that have helped me keep my head held high - no matter what the outcome of an event. Your love and support and generosity have been greatly appreciated. Thanks again for everything.
