Jessie Fewer named Miss Trin­i­tyCon­cep­tion 2012

Ten young ladies demon­state tal­ent, poise and beauty at an­nual pageant

The Compass - - ORTHTE - BY TERRY ROBERTS THE COM­PASS

Jessie Fewer of Cupids re­ported to work at Robin’s res­tau­rant in Bay Roberts at 4:30 a.m. on Satur­day, Sept. 22 with a lit­tle more than three hours sleep.

But don’t get the idea this dy­namic 16year-old was out gal­li­vant­ing un­til the wee hours.

In fact, she was still beam­ing from be­ing crowned Miss Teen Trin­ity-Con­cep­tion 2012-13 dur­ing the eighth an­nual pageant held at S.W. Moores Memo­rial Sta­dium in Har­bour Grace the night be­fore.

Jessie was also named Miss Teen Friend­ship, and earned the Peo­ple’s Choice, which was voted on by au­di­ence mem­bers.

It was nearly 1 a.m. be­fore Jessie and her fam­ily re­turned to their home on Keat­ing’s Road, still en­er­gized from an ex­pe­ri­ence that will trans­form her young life over the next 12 months, and cre­ate mem­o­ries that will last for­ever.

A few days later, she was on a plane with nine other fel­low students from As­cen­sion Col­le­giate, trav­el­ling to a week-long lead­er­ship con­fer­ence in Saskatchewan.

It sounds like a fran­tic pace, but noth­ing she can’t han­dle.

Jessie held down three part-time jobs dur­ing her sum­mer break, is a peer coun­sel­lor to students at Amal­ga­mated Academy, and re­ceived an award for community in­volve­ment in 2011. She’s a tal­ented vi­o­lin­ist and ac­tress, and is co-cap­tain of “The Teens of Hope,” a team of some 40 young peo­ple that raised some $9,500 dur­ing the re­cent Re­lay for Life.
