Community Service & Involvement

My platform “C.O.A.S.T.” stands for Concentration, Observation, Anticipation, Space, and Time. It is an acronym designed to help others remember safe driving techniques. My goal is to inform others about the dangers of distracted driving and to prevent future accidents from happening. My platform is very personal to me. In 2015, I was in a traumatic car accident that has given me a new perspective in life and a louder voice than ever.

Below is a Link to an article, I received the Bart Lebon humanitarian of the year award in 2019 for having over 40 community service hours.

“Rifle junior Amy Gentry was named the Bart LeBon Humanitarian of the Year after volunteering her the majority of her free time with the local high school rifle teams, coaching and offering her expertise to beginners. The Bart LeBon Humanitarian of the Year is presented to, “a student-athlete who embodies a positive athletic role model through selfless volunteer work in the community.” LeBon played on UAF’s NAIA National Championships men’s basketball team in 1973 and became a Nanook booster in 1975. LeBon continues to support UAF, its student-athletes and numerous organizations around the Fairbanks community.”

Essays

Essay #1

If I were crowned the next Miss National American Coronet, I would use my title to make a positive impact. I would share my platform, C.O.A.S.T. to educate others about the dangers of distracted driving. I would be a role model to all, and help serve others in any way that I can. I would share the importance of mental-health awareness, and help break the stigmas that go along with it. I would advocate for body positivity and encourage confidence in young women. This title would allow me to branch out of small community of Fairbanks Alaska, and give me a louder voice than ever. My passion is serving others and this would be a dream come true, and an opportunity of lifetime.

Essay #2

If I could spend a day with any woman, I would choose to spend one last day with my grandmother Pat. She passed away in 2016, and she was a very important figure in my life. Although I never got to spend a lot of time with her, as she lived in Oregon and I live in Alaska, I would write to her and the time I got to spend with her was cherished deeply. If I had the chance to spend one more day with her, I would go to Florence and take her out to the pier to get crabs and clams. I went “clamming” is what we called it with her one time, and we spend all day out on the pier together even though we only dug up one clam, but it was one of my favorite memories with her. I would also walk with her through “Old Town” in Florence and go in all the little shops we used to go in when I would visit her. I miss her dearly and would give anything to spend one more day with her.

Easy #3

I think the best thing about my home state, besides the beautiful nature, wildlife, and northern lights, would have to be the community. They say it takes a village to raise a child, and the community of Fairbanks is like one huge family. People here are so patient, helpful, uplifting, and positive. When tragedy strikes in our community we all come together and grieve, when an achievement is made, we all know in the news paper the next day. No matter what, I know I will always have a support network of people here in my small home in Fairbanks Alaska.
