While tabling at the Mass Audubon Allens Neck Duck Derby, a most amazing thing happened! Miss New Bedford (in fact, Miss Outstanding Teen New Bedford!), Kelsey DeGouveia, appeared on the scene. Not only was she elegant, poised, and wonderful with the small children milling about, she was genuinely interested in the Energy Challenge. Together with her father, she registered to ‘Take the Challenge’– thus pledging to take energy saving action at home and generally speaking, in life; additionally, the DeGouveia’s expressed interest in receiving a home energy assessment as their first action. Hooray! An environmentally responsible, energy conscious Miss (Outstanding Teen) New Bedford!! It was a pleasure to meet you, Kelsey. You have our vote for Miss Massachusetts!
