Respected Miss America Pageant volunteer Bob Arnhym supports MAOT scholarships for teens!
Miss America’s Outstanding Teen is pleased to announce Bob Arnhym as the 2012 award sponsor for the Outstanding Achievement in Academic Life Scholarship, which will be awarded to the contestant who has the highest scholastic honors.
Bob Arnhym has volunteered for over 50 years for the Miss America Organization and was part of the original steering committee creating the first Miss America’s Outstanding Teen competition.
“As one of the Co-founders of MAOTeen, I urged the original Board Members to include Scholastic Achievement as a scoring category, at the national level. I also urged the establishment of an annual cash scholarship award,” Arnhym said. “I felt that I should do more than just ‘suggest’ that there be an award’.”
