Junior Miss of America 2019

      Savoie Srodulski

Savoie Srodulski was selected as Junior Miss of the Southeast in July of 2018. She then competed at the National Pageant in Orlando, Florida this past November, and was crowned American Pageant’s Junior Miss of America 2019.

Savoie is a sophomore at Ola High School, and currently has a 4.0 GPA taking Honors Chemistry, Honors Advanced Algebra, Honors World Lit & Comp, Honors World History, Advanced Band, Essentials of Healthcare (2nd year), and American Sign Language. She is looking forward to her upcoming third year in Healthcare which will allow her to shadow professionals performing jobs she finds of interest. Additionally, students who pass all three healthcare courses also earn an Anatomy credit and qualify to sit for End-of-Pathway Assessments in various Allied Health and Medical fields. She also plans to start dual enrollment at a local college beginning next August.

Savoie is very active at school. She has been a BETA Member from 2012-2018, a HOSA Member 2017-2018, and is currently 1 of 30 selected for Chick-fil-A’s Leader Academy. She earned Ola’s 2018 Female Tennis Athlete of the Year award, Henry County’s Athlete of the Week award, and Honorable Mention for the 2018 All-Region 4-AAAAA tennis team. She currently has a record of 26-2, and is preparing for the start of the new season in February where she hopes to be their first string singles player. She also hopes the varsity team can improve on last year’s season where they made it to Sweet 16 in the state. Savoie also loves music, and plays trumpet in the Symphonic Band. She has won many awards in music such as two-time Outstanding Band Member, two-time District Honor Band Member, and Univ. of Georgia Mid-Fest Band Member.

Despite her accomplishments, Savoie’s greatest joy comes from serving at church and in her community. She loves little kids, and has been a volunteer and worship leader at Bethany Children’s Church and Vacation Bible School for several years now. She also helps with community outreach events and participates in DNOW community service projects. She has helped feed the hungry at Calvary Refuge, and volunteered at Rachel’s Gift Auction, Rachel’s Gift Angel Dash, Compassion Experience International, and the local Sunshine League.

During her time as Junior Miss of America, Savoie wants to continue helping young kids. She plans to speak with middle school students about cyberbullying, as she knows the feeling firsthand. She wants the kids to know they are not alone, and offer suggestions on how they too can keep a positive sense of self despite what others say or think. She would also like to address the literacy problem in America, as she loved reading all through elementary and middle school. However, many kids do not receive the necessary stimulation from birth onward to give them the experiences necessary for successful vocabulary development. Too many kids are entering kindergarten and elementary without these early experiences. So her goal is to see how she can best help in this area. Currently, one idea is to request donations of electronic reader books and share them with kids in need well before they start kindergarten.

Savoie is very grateful for American Pageants and the opportunities that lie ahead. She has met so many smart, driven girls already and the journey has just begun. Savoie is proud to be representing this organization, and all it stands for, as their 2019 Junior Miss of America.
