Millie McDonald, a long-time resident of Greenville, has been named as one of ten finalists who will compete for the title of Ms. Alabama Nursing Home during a pageant on July 25.
McDonald, who currently holds the title of Ms. Crowne Health Care of Greenville, was selected for the distinction from a pool of 53 contestants.
During the pageant later this month, McDonald and her fellow contestants will compete in several areas, including an interview portion.
According to the Alabama Nursing Home Association (ANHA) website, the pageant is about honoring the contestants and acknowledging their many contributions.
“This pageant is a celebration of life and the contributions these ladies make in their nursing home and community,” ANHA Chairman Frank Brown said. “Each contestant is an example of how you can make a difference no matter your age or ability. They are wonderful ambassadors of Alabama’s rehab and long-term care centers.”
Of her selection as a finalist, McDonald said that she was truly humbled. She added that what she was looking forward to most during the pageant was the honor of representing her nursing home.
“The people at Crowne Health have been good to me,” said McDonald. “They nominated me for the pageant. Therefore, I would like to do a good job, if I can. I want to represent them to the best of my abilities.”
The pageant will start at 2 p.m. at The Hyatt Regency–The Wynfrey Hotel in Hoover on July 25. Admission is free, and the public is encouraged to attend.
