Allentown native crowned Mrs. Pennsylvania United States 2011

Pittsburgh, PA – March 20, 2011 – Mrs. Greater Lehigh County 2011 Kate A. Mack from Allentown was crowned Mrs. Pennsylvania United States 2011 at the Hyatt Regency Pittsburgh International Airport on Sunday. The event, produced by Sanders & Associates, is an official state preliminary to the Mrs. United States Pageant, to be held July 31-August 5 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Mack’s success was the culmination of competing for the past two years, placing as first runner- up in last year’s pageant. Last year’s winner, Susan Huntley, attended the 2011 pageant to crown her successor.

“I am humbled, blessed, thankful, and overjoyed,” Mack said. “Winning the crown is nothing short of a dream come true.” Nevertheless, Mack’s dreams extend far beyond her crowning moment.

Mack's mantra to "Dream Big" has been a guiding force from the time she achieved her goal to dance professionally in 2005. As a high school English teacher, such ambition extends to lighting the way for others to fulfill their dreams as Mack nurtures the lives of youth through education that is attuned to her students’ interests and skills.

Mack also supports the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Valley Youth House, Women in Art in PA, and additional organizations that support the needs of the underprivileged. She and her husband/teammate of three years, James, believe the purpose of life is a life of purpose and thereby work tirelessly to enrich the lives of others with hope and joy.

As for her involvement in pageantry, Mack explains, “Women who are married or are contemplating marriage need role models that highlight the fact that life doesn’t stop after their wedding day. The Mrs. United States Pageant system provides those paradigms to inspire women in their roles as wives, mothers, career women, community leaders, and public servants.”

Prior to marriage, Mack obtained both her B.A. in English and her M.Ed. in Secondary Education from Lehigh University in just five years while working two jobs, interning, and volunteering. She uses her story of determination and commitment to inspire students and to emphasize her belief that with a little courage and effort, anything is possible.

“I try to build relationships with my students that facilitate finding their niche and then not just running, but sprinting with it!” Mack said. “My journey toward becoming Mrs. Pennsylvania United States is a perfect example of establishing a goal and doing everything feasible to make it happen.”
