Pilot Club of Louisville announces annual pageant winners

From press reports

The Pilot Club of Louisville sponsored their annual Winston County Pageant for girls ages 4-18, and for boys ages 4-7.

The pageant was held Saturday, March 19 at the Louisville High School Auditorium. The theme for this year was “A Magical Wonderland.”

The proceeds from the pageant go to support Pilot Club projects and to promote awareness of Brain Related Disorders by helping those affected through volunteer activities, education, and financial support.

Winners were named in several categories. See photographs and cutlines.

Founded in Macon, GA in 1921, Pilot International has been dedicated to serve for almost a century.

The historic inspiration for the name was the riverboat pilot who would steer a true course through calm or troubled waters, thus, for almost 100 years, Pilots have served under the motto “True Course Ever.”

The name “Pilot” was inspired by the mighty riverboat pilots of that day who represented leadership and guidance.

Pilot Principles: Friendship and Service Motto: “True Course Ever”

Colors: Green (life and vigor) and Gold (sincerity of purpose)

Emblem: A riverboat pilot’s wheel with eight spokes

First Pilot President: Lucy B. Allen, elected at the organization’s first convention in 1922.
