Hear what recent appearance sponsors are saying about Arlie!
“We were more than just pleased with Arlie’s participation in our event. She really made it very special for a roomful of young children. I had expected the little girls to be in awe and want to be a princess, too, but so many of the little boys wanted to talk to her and have their pictures taken with her, too! She gave more than 50 young military children a memory that I’m sure they’ll be talking about for quite a while!” -Beverly Jackson, Princess and Pirate Event

We are planning on some themes for next year and we would love to work with the Miss North Carolina Organization again! Thank you again for making this process very easy and simple, talk to you soon!” Priya Patel, The Inspiration
“Thank-you for sharing the wonderful 75th Miss NC, Arlie Honeycutt with North Carolina’s Outstanding Little Miss. What a true delight and honor it was to have Arlie attend the slumber party and crown the new 2012 NCOLM court. She was fabulous with both the girls and their families. From the moment she arrived she was gracious, attentive, and totally focused on making everyone in the room feel like a Queen. At one point during the slumber party she even shared her high heels with the girls which was quite an honor for these young girls with hopes to one day walk in her shoes. We were thrilled to have her. The Miss North Carolina has a wonderful representive; we are extremely proud to call Arlie our big sister and can not wait to see what this year’s journey holds in store for us.
