Pat Miller, of Patriot, was named International Director of the Year (Multi-Division) 2018 in New York City during New York Fashion Week by Beauty It’s Everywhere Magazine! Pat is the owner and International Executive Director for Pure International Pageants (PURE). PURE is a faith inspired, natural pageant for girls ages 4 and up. PURE started in Gallia County in 2011 and has since grown to over 30 states and 19 countries.

Each year, Beauty It’s Everywhere launches a search for the “best of the best” in the pageant and fashion industries. Nominations are accepted by individuals and then a semi-finalist list is selected by an awards committee. After the semi-finalist list is made, a public vote is created to narrow the list down to a top five! The top five are then researched and taken before a selection committee. Each year, Beauty It’s Everywhere then hold their “New York Fashion Week 2.0” where pageant titleholders and models take the runway in their various fashion shows. The awards ceremony is held after the final fashion show. Pat was unable to attend due to a state pageant in Maryland, but the award was accepted by another PURE pageant member on her behalf.

“I am humbled and honored to accept this award! There were so many up for it. I was shocked to be named the winner. I know I could not have done it without my amazing staff and queens. They are what make our pageant so great!” Pat said in her acceptance speech.

PURE has started their state pageant season that will run through April and their national and international pageants will be held in Orlando, Florida this June.
