Miss Alabama 1997 Beth Stomps Feller spoke recently at the annual Back to School Hoover Belle Ice Cream Social.
She shared a message of responsibility, commitment and dedication to one’s self and a group through the story of her journey to become Miss Alabama. Her personal emphasis on volunteerism and community service has continued as an adult.
She encouraged the Belles to consider their years of community service as a commitment that will continue beyond high school and sang “Love Changes Everything” from the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Aspects of Love.
The Hoover Belles are high school juniors and seniors selected to serve as hostesses for the City of Hoover.
Hoover Belle committee chairman Laura Boyd and members Jennie Alley, Sandra Barnett, Pam Harris, Cathy Head, Jan Pruitt and Kay Witt were present at the event in addition to the Belles.
