Miss Queen City’s Outstanding Teen 2015

Miss Queen City’s Outstanding Teen 2015, Ava Starnes, visited Miss Lewis’ class in celebration of Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Ava Starnes is a former Prospect student who is now in seventh grade at Parkwood Middle School.


During her time with Miss Lewis’ class, Ava read several books written by Dr. Seuss and talked about her pageant experiences. The Miss Queen City organization encourages those who participate to volunteer.

Ava explained what it means to volunteer and encouraged Miss Lewis’ second grade students to serve the community by volunteering.


Logan Rogers in Miss Lewis’ class loved learning about pageants and it made her happy to know how much volunteering Ava does. Logan would one day like to volunteer as much as Ava.


Miss Lewis’ class was honored to have Ava come read to them and will be cheering her on as she goes to the Miss North Carolina pageant in June!
