Taylor Named Miss Cover Girl
Kayla Taylor, daughter of Stephanie Taylor of Far Rockaway, was crowned National American Miss New York Princess Cover Girl. She received this title in addition to an official state crown, banner and trophy on August 9, at the state pageant held at the Marriot Hotel in Brooklyn.
Taylor also received state ambassador, Spirit of America and state finalist trophies; four ribbons; casual wear; and acknowledgement for most recommendations and most photogenic. The sevenyear old has been invited to compete at the National Pageant to be held during Thanksgiving week in Anaheim, California.
The National American Miss Pageants' program is based on inner beauty, as well as poise, presentation, and offers an "All American Spirit" of fun for family and friends. Emphasis is placed on the
importance of gaining self-confidence, learning new skills, learning good attitudes about competition, and setting and achieving personal goals. The PS 215 student enjoys reading, math, jigsaw puzzles, writing, Nintendo Gameboy and drawing. She also volunteers at Blanche Day Care, where she spends her time reading to younger children. She is the granddaughter of Shirley Taylor of Far Rockaway.
