The 2013 Cochise County Cinderella Woman, Mariah May, went on to win the Arizona State Cinderella Woman crown and has now won the International Cinderella Woman title! A true triple-crown for Mariah and Cochise County. A complete article on her journey appeared in Sunday’s Herald/Review.
The reigning 2013 Cochise County Cinderella Miss, Stephanie Deleon from Fort Huachuca, placed in the international top 10 and then was chosen fourth alternate to the International Cinderella Miss, ages 10-12. Stephanie played the piano to “Bearcat Boogie” and finished with a classical piece, “Farewell.”
The 2012 Cochise County Cinderella Tot, Kylie Holston, was also crowed the 2013 Arizona State Tot. Advancing to the international finals, she placed in the top 10 among the International Cinderella Tots, ages 3-6. Her Arizona State Tot Personality interview was a huge success — we’ll never forget her emphatically calling her brother, Tyler, “a dream-crusher!” for telling her that princesses weren’t real.
This was also a successful year for Renee Romo. She crowned her successor to the 2013 East Valley
Cinderella pageant in Phoenix. Advancing to the Arizona state finals, she placed in the Overall Miss Top 10 and as second alternate to talent. At the international finals, she received a non-finalist award — Most Original Talent. Renee is a ventriloquist and performed with her “friend,” Tommy.
The Cochise County Cinderella Program is directed by Mrs. Terri Romo. Further information about the Cochise County Program may be found on the CoCoCinderella Facebook page.
