Breaking News, LFAS Heros

Storsley, a high school teacher at Langley Fine Arts School, spends his time helping charities such as Cops for Cancer, the Miss BC Pageant and Miss Teen BC Pageant. The aim of the pageant is to select a BC role model who attends charity events, community events and represents the youth voice.  The event so far has raised over $100,000. The money comes from the fifty girls who enter the pageant. They each organize one fundraiser such as a talent night or a car wash.

Mr. Storsley stated passionately that  “It is not a beauty competition; it is for youth to be more involved in their communities.  I created a pageant where the emphasis is on who you are as a person and the difference you can make.”  The pageants are aired on prime time television.

The girls entered in the pageant are given opportunities for professional training, such as an interview skills, public speaking, self-defense, modeling, and a television and media course; the costs are all covered by the pageant.

Created ten years ago, Mr. Storsley states that, “It has become bigger and better, and there is something in it for everyone.”

Even though Mr. Storsley created the pageant, he says, “I wouldn’t say I’m a hero, but many people see Miss. BC as a hero… I don’t want to be the focus.”
