Ms. American Elegance Sophisticate 2022-2023
Kendall Dalzell is currently the Aquatics and Youth Development Coordinator at her Local YMCA, which played a big part for her platform water safety and drowning prevention. Kendall works full time at the Y, holds two part time jobs alternating weekends, as well as taking college courses full time to obtain her
degree in business management and marketing.
She resides in a small town in Illinois with her daughter, Kennedy. Fun fact: they were born on the same day, in the same hospital, just 23 years apart in Traverse City Michigan. If you ever see them out and about you will know they belong together.
Kendall’s pageant journey began in 2014 when someone told her “Fat girls don’t do pageants, you will never win”. Something in her clicked and she said, “watch me”. She competed for a Labor Day Pageant in Westville, Illinois where although she did not place, she left feeling like she had because of the love and support that poured in afterward. Kendall received Honorary Miss Springfest in 2015, Best of Speech and the Director’s award at the Georgetown Fair Queen Pageant 2015 and competed in a few other pageants before hanging up her heels in 2016. After witnessing the amazing sisterhood of American Elegance she knew she found her place and chose to compete again in 2022 where she was crowned your 2022-2023 Ms American Elegance Sophisticate.
You will find Kendall ringing bells for the salvation army, volunteering for toys for tots, the many events the YMCA holds, amongst many more. She also holds a seat on the Georgetown Youth Sports Board and loves coaching cheerleading for the kinderpoms and peanut cheerleaders.
