Mrs. America Pageant boasts two from isles

Mrs. America Pageant boasts two from isles
Honolulu HI Star-Bulletin 10Sep99 L5
By Stephanie Kendrick: Assistant Features Editor

Mrs. Texas, Edrienne Leolani Carpenter, is a member of the LDS Church and has been competing in the annual Mrs. America pageant held in Hawaii. Sister Carpenter was scheduled to compete in the preliminary competition this past Sunday, and possibly in the final competition, held Tuesday evening, September 14th.

Carpenter is the daughter of Hawaiians Edward and Eileen Edwards and graduated from Waimea High School in 1991. She married Shane Carpenter after meeting him at BYU and is persuing an MBA at Texas A&M University along with her husband.

Carpenter believes that the pageant can provide a good example for women. "The Mrs. America pageant to me really encompasses a well-rounded woman who has probably already attained many of her personal goals and her family goals," she said. "The married woman still can have it all and still can be beautiful and still can be physically fit and she doesn't have to let herself go after marriage."
