Rising Star Program

“Alabama’s Rising Stars” is a program of the Miss Alabama Pageant through which contestants act as mentors for young ladies aged seven (7) to eleven (11).

Mattie Cook, a third grade student at Greenville Elementary School, was selected Miss Camellia’s Rising Star on September 17, 2017. Presley Julianne Rutland, a third grader at Greenville Elementary School, was selected Miss Camellia’s Outstanding Teen’s Rising Star on December 16, 2017. Each of these young ladies will accompany their big sisters/titleholders to many different events throughout the year.

The Rising Stars program is not a competition but rather a mentoring and learning process.
