Keely has been involved in pageantry for three and half years and has worked hard towards obtaining a state title. After months of hard work and dedication, she took the stage with confidence and poise. Keely walked away with not only with the state title, but she also was recognized for her academic achievement. Keely is now set to represent our beautiful state of California at the international competition this summer in San Antonio, Texas.

Keely’s platform as International Junior Miss California Junior Teen is “Hearts 4 the Homeless’ Pets”. This is a program Keely is in the process of putting together for her Girl Scout silver project and hopes to make it in to a non-profit. Hearts for the Homeless’ Pets is to be a resource guide for the homeless who have pets get the goods and services their furry family members need.
Keely is thankful to everyone for the support she has been given and for the support to come. She has a very busy and exciting year ahead of her and is looking forward to serving Santa Clarita and the state of California.
