Kappa Lambda Omega continued its tradition of cultivating beautiful princesses with its 13th biennial Little Miss AKA Pageant, “A Journey for a Princess,” on November 10, 2012. The pageant held at the World Baptist Center was the pinnacle of six months of cultural, educational and social activities. Thirty-two contestants, ages seven
through 12, participated in numerous social and educational activities designed to help them gain friendships, poise, leadership skills and a passion for philanthropy from positive role models in the sorority and local pageant queens, including a skating party, Mother-Daughter Luncheon, field trip to the Frist Center for Visual Arts, Tennessee State University’s centennial homecoming parade, community service project at McKissack Middle School and workshops on nutrition, etiquette, Internet safety, fashion and self-esteem.
Little Miss AKA 2012 Mary Leigh Collins, age 9, is the daughter of Dr. Millard and LaTandra Collins and was sponsored by chapter member LaMona McCarter. Mary is a fourth grader at St. Bernard Academy, which she is involved with Girl Scouts of America, cross country and basketball. She enjoys memorizing and reciting poetry and wants to be a physical.
The first Little Miss AKA Pageant was held in 1988. Since then, it has become the primary biennial fundraiser for Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Kappa Lambda Omega Chapter. Through support from contestants, parents, chapter members, local businesses and the community, more than $100,000 in scholarships have been awarded to deserving college-bound African American women.
