Miss America 2010 Caressa Cameron, MAO Chairman, Sam Haskell, III, MAO President & CEO Art McMaster & His Royal Highness, The Prince Edward Enjoy a Royal Celebration
Miss America 2010 Caressa Cameron is currently in South Carolina with Board Chairman Sam Haskell, President & CEO Art McMaster and the Miss South Carolina Scholarship Organization, where she is participating in events around HRH Prince Edward’s visit this weekend at Greenville’s Scottish Games and the 2010 Duke of Edinburgh’s Award presentation to Miss South Carolina and Miss South Carolina Outstanding Teen recipients.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a program that encourages young people to develop into responsible, active citizens who will positively contribute to society. Sam is President of the program and is working to grow the program throughout the United States — the award is already featured in 120 countries!
The Miss America Organization has united with the Duke Of Edinburgh’s Award Young Americans’ Challenge. In fact, contestants in South Carolina and Ohio will be among the first Duke of Edinburgh’s Award medal recipients in the nation!
Caressa’s events this weekend include speaking to graduating high school seniors, assisting in a presentation with the Mayor of Greenville to the South Carolina Incentive Winners, a CMN fundraiser, a parade in downtown Greenville, participating in the Scottish Games, and assisting Sam Haskell and HRH Prince Edward to present the Duke of Edinburgh Awards. It is a busy weekend, but full of exciting events!
