2015 Sakura Pageant Directors
2015 Mrs. & Ms. Sakura Pageant Director
Angie has a passion for the Mrs. Sakura Organization that started when she competed and was crowned the 2012 Mrs. Sakura Scholarship Pageant winner. Being a participant and throughout her reign, Angie saw first-hand the workings of the organization and after passing the torch volunteered as the president and daytime pageant director in 2014. From there it was an easy decision to apply for director of the 2015 Mrs. and Ms. Sakura Pageant since she had recently finished her Master's in Event Management which was paid for by her pageant scholarship. Having planned base-wide events, Angie was excited for this opportunity.
The theme of 'World Travelers' was inspired by the opportunities Angie's family enjoyed while living overseas and by the many friends from diverse countries and cultures. When reflecting on recruitment for the pageant, Angie recognized that the woman of Yokota AB represented exotic and diverse locations around the world. The opening number encourage our participants to dress in an outfit that embraced the story of their life, either where they were born and raised, where they enjoyed living, or where they hoped to travel to next. The theme was incorporated into all aspects of the pageant from the props to contestant prizes.
