The winners of The Miss Chesterfield Scholarship Pageant 2012 worked as hostesses and registrars at the Mega Mentors Fine Art Show & Sale. The event was held at the newly restored Hippodrome Theater in Richmond’s Historic Jackson Ward. The Mega Mentor Program was formed by trustees of the Chesterfield Public Education Foundation (CPEF). Mega Mentors is focusing on expanding its efforts to meet the growing need for mentors in Chesterfield County Public Schools. Proceeds from the evening are directed through the Foundation to support their work.
Dr. Marcus Newsome, Chesterfield County Public Schools Superintendent, has identified the need for mentors in the school system. Mega Mentors was formed in response. The committee recruits mentors and has them trained by the Virginia Mentoring Partnership. Working that evening to meet their commitment to being youth role models were, Delesia Watson – Miss Chesterfield 2012, Olivia Fletcher – Miss Chesterfield’s Outstanding Teen, and Princesses Angelina Anderson, Peyton Plummer & Abigail Powell.
