New Vision Academy teacher honored for 10 years of Miss Louisiana pageant service

Last night at Miss Louisiana 2017 preliminaries, Miss Monroe Pageant director Gaundhi Kline was honored for ten years of service to the Miss Louisiana Organization.

Miss Monroe Pageant began in 2009 and Kline has been instrumental in the operation since inception. Kline works effortlessly to get funding from community organizations and cooperative endeavor agreements with the City of Monroe to provide scholarships to young women ages 17-24 in Monroe. A few years ago, Kline added an additional title holder to her Miss Louisiana preliminary offerings with Miss Pride of Monroe. Both pageant winners are contestants in the annual Miss Louisiana Pageant and participate in various social events in Monroe throughout the year.

A graduate of Grambling State University and a member of the Zeta Phi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., she has been an educator for over 15 years and is currently serving as a six grade teacher at New Vision Learning Academy. Outside of the classroom, Kline works tirelessly as not only a parent but as mentor to dozens of young women in the Miss Louisiana Pageant system. As director of Miss Monroe, she takes no pay for her time, as it is all volunteer work. When she is not directing, she also volunteers as a judge in other pageants around the state.

The next Miss Monroe pageant will be held in November at Neville High School.
