Yaay!! I am soo excited to be able to create my first blog as Miss Fulton County 2011! I'll take my cues from Miss Fulton County 2010, Heather Shaffer and begin with an introduction of myself. My name is Kieren Sheridan. I am a 23 year old graduate of SUNY Oneonta with my B.S. in Spanish. In the fall I will be attending Grad school to receive my degree in Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages. I have always had a love of learning in general but particularly learning languages. I hope to work as an English as a Second Language teacher.
On Saturday, February 5th I was crowned Miss Fulton County 2011. This year was a particularly special year for the pageant, as it was the 40th Anniversary of the competition. As it was such a special occasion, there were several special occurances during the show. For example the panel of judges were all former titleholders in Miss Fulton County. As a contestant, I felt that this made the experience easier, since I knew that the judges were once in my shoes. The theme of the show was also centered around the special anniversary that the pageant was celebrating. The 40th anniversary is also considered the, "ruby," anniversary and so several aspects of the show hightlighted this fact. The stage was decorated with ruby colored cloth and a crown with ruby stones.
I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all of the sponsors who made this event possible. Your support has allowed the Miss Fulton County program to grow and thrive. As a contestant and new titleholder, I feel that I can speak for all participants when I say thank you. We all appreciate your dedication to the empowerment of the young women of Fulton County.
I am thrilled to have this opportunity to represent the Fulton County. Check back and see what I have been up to!

I cannot believe that this is my last post as your Miss Fulton County. This year has been an amazing journey and I have loved every single minute of it. Thank you, Fulton County, for accepting me and supporting me throughout the year! This has been truly incredible and I am sad to see it end. I cannot wait to see who is crowned tonight. I am sure they will be a wonderful representative of Fulton County! Best of luck to all of the participants tonight--you are all impressive! Again, thank you to everyone, especially the Miss Fulton County Board of Directors, for making this a truly special year for me!
