Mrs South Central Regency International 2016
My name is Lauralee Veitch your current Mrs. South Central Regency International. I am 45 years old and have been married to my wonderful husband for 15 years. My profession as a Registered Nurse has allowed me the opportunity to help so many people over the years. Outside of my job I continue to help others by volunteering at the local Fire and EMS department. I’ve taken part in many other volunteer activities from Art Festivals and Beauty Pageants to providing visits at local nursing homes. All of these things have provided me the opportunity to see the wonderful spirit of volunteering. With photography as my passion and my hope to bring awareness to PTSD in First Responders I have dedicated a great deal of time assisting national organizations to recognize PTSD in first responders. I have been lucky enough to have several of my photos used for awareness campaigns throughout the US and Canada. Most recently I was asked to share a photo of my for use in an exhibit in the 9/11 Memorial Museum. There is nothing comparable to giving a part of yourself to your community and making a difference in someone else’s life. All this can be accomplished just by volunteering.

Little Miss Oklahoma Regency International 2016
Miss Kamiryn Ryan is the 11 year old daughter of Denise and Kevin Ryan. Kamiryn is the youngest of 3 childern. She has 2 older brothers, Michael and Austin, that she absolutely adores. Kamiryn was born in Ada, OK on Austust 9, 2005. When she was a year old we made our move back to McAlester, OK; this is home. Kamiryn is a 5th grade student at Frink Chambers Elementary. Kamiryn loves going to school, her favorite subject is Reading. And just like every girl her age she loves hanging out with her friends. Kamiryn is an all around girl. She had played baseball on The Grasshoppers team for the Pittsburg Co. Little League for 2 years. She also loves being outdoors. She loves going and hanging out with her Grandpa and doing outdoor things with him. Kamiryn is very family oriented, she loves being apart of a large family… there is always something going on. Kamiryn likes to ride 4 wheelers and mini motorcycles, just like her 2 brothers. Kamiryn also loves to help out in the kitchen cooking every chance she gets. She calls it her “prep work” for when she goes to Culinary School to become a Gourmet Chef when she grows up. (For right now anyways) Kamiryn started doing pageants about a year and a half ago. Her first one was a small local pageant and she won Ultimate Grand Supreme! From that moment on she was hooked. She loves the lights the dresses and of course she loves all the attention she gets. Kamiryn loves getting up on that stage and showing everyone who she is.
Kamiryn is a member of the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls. Kamiryn has also made the decision to become a volunteer for our local Disabled American Veterans Chapter in Krebs, Ok. She made the decision to become a volunteer because she felt that in her heart that it was her responsibility to help our veterans, being that she has family members and extended family members in the military that have served our country.
In May of 2016 Kamiryn was honored with the title, Little Miss Oklahoma Regency International 2016. Since then it has been an adventure of a lifetime for her and continues still everyday. She was given the opportunity to travel to Las Vegas and compete in the International Pageant for Regency. In this wonderful journey she has been able to meet so many new friends that she would have never met without the help of the Regency International Pageantry. For that she will be forever grateful. Thank you
Though she may be small she is fierce, with big dreams and high hopes….
This is Kamiryn Ryan, your Little Miss Oklahoma Regency International 2016
