About

Shel Parham , Executive Director 

I have been a part of the United States Pageant System for 4 years serving as a state pageant coordinator for 2 years and last year took over the position of state director. 

Before going into the pageant world; I taught middle school in DeKalb, Illinois for several years. After finding myself in Kenosha Wisconsin 7 years ago, I returned to modeling and acting I had done as a teen, bought a bridal store, and finally at the age of 43 tried my first pageant.  4 years later I am a two-time National Titleholder and the blessed Executive Director of Wisconsin  and Illinois United States Pageants.
