Peggy Miller, Executive Director

Peggy Miller began her involvement with the Miss America system as a sponsor for a local program in 2000. She continued her involvement at the local level until she was asked to move to the state program in 2002, where her desire grew to help others succeed in their endeavors with the Miss Washington Scholarship Organization. She became the Executive Director of the MWSO in 2007 and has since continued to build on the foundation laid by those that have gone before her taking the MWSO to new heights. Washington's representatives have been very successful at Miss America for several years thanks to the Washington State Pageant Family! Peggy is a Washington native, and is happily married to her husband Mike. They have two married children, and love spending time with their grandkids and family. She is known for her hash tags #grateful & #kindness matters.
