Donna has been involved in the Miss White Rock Youth Ambassador program in some capacity since 1974. Donna’s sister Lisa and daughter Kelsey participated as ambassadors during their teens. Kelsey was the Friendship Ambassador from 2004 and returns yearly to choreograph the opening dance number.
There have been many changes throughout the life cycle of Miss White Rock Pageant to its evolution as the White Rock Youth Ambassador Program. Donna functions as the guardian of traditions, honouring the past, while innovating new ideas and opportunities so that the program is fresh and relevant. Her favourite parts are networking with all the people she meets through the program, as well as working with enthusiastic teens.
