Whitten represented us well

As the Eisemann Center for the Performing Arts in Dallas hosted the International Cinderella Pageant in July, a beautiful, confident young woman representing Port Orchard, Kitsap County and Washington state launched herself headlong into the various stages of the competition.

Charlotte Whitten embraced all of the events with her typical enthusiasm, grace, positive attitude and, of course, her fabulous smile and engaging personality.

Charlotte’s efforts paid off as she won a huge trophy for being named “First Alternate Photogenic” and a Gold Medal in the “American Amateur Modeling and Talent Competition.”

Although she is proud of these accomplishments, Charlotte cherishes the once-in-a-lifetime experience that she and her family enjoyed. She appreciates the community support via the Kitsap Bank Fund and the Port Orchard Eagles.

As Charlotte thanks us, we thank her for representing all of us by competing on the world stage. We couldn’t have had better representation. Thanks for being our ambassador!
