Kennedy Stillman-Faith will participate in the Miss New Jersey Pageant next week, hopefully moving on to represent New Jersey in the Miss America Pageant in September!

Kennedy Stillman-Faith is the current Miss Atlantic County and a senior at Mainland Regional High School.

According to Shore News Today, she's not only a pillar of the community, but she's a great student.

“This young lady is an exceptional role model for her peers, an outstanding academic student with a GPA greater than 4.3,” District Superintendent Robert Previti said.  “She is someone who perceives that service to others is a rule to live by and not an exception to occupy as a pastime or happenstance.”

Stillman-Faith will be singing as her talent portion of the competition,  while her platform is "Youth and Alcohol; A Dangerous Mix."  She's looking to make an impact with young kids about making better choices.

The Miss New Jersey Pageant begins next Wednesday with the annual parade in Ocean City on the Boardwalk.

Good luck Kennedy!
