Pacific Beach resident Jeanne Lenhart, 66, is advancing to compete in the Ms. Senior California on Aug. 25 at the Rose Center Theater in Westminster after claiming the crown for Ms. Senior San Diego in February.

The winner of the competition will go on to compete in the Ms. Senior America Pageant in October in Atlantic City.

Lenhart, who has lived in Mission Beach her whole life and owns Mission Designs, will be among 12 from California competing in interview, evening gown and talent competitions, as well reciting their philosophies of life.

The theme of this year’s California competition is “Ladies, Take a Bow.”

Lenhart is a former educator at San Diego High School, Roosevelt Middle School and San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts.

At Mission Designs, her design talents shine as an interior designer. She is an award-winning volleyball player with multiple wins at San Diego State, Mr. G’s AA teams, Senior Games and the Senior Olympics.

Lenhart has won street-dance competitions, belongs to the Mission Beach Woman’s Club and Bitchen Beach Babes, and volunteers her time by teaching dance classes to adults and volleyball to children and teens.

The Ms. Senior California pageant is for women who have reached the “age of elegance” — that is, 60 years of age and up, according to organizers.

Each contestant competing in this year’s pageant either won a city title or was first runner-up in the six preliminary pageants held around the state.

The pageant seeks to elevate elegant senior women and allow them to get the recognition they deserve, organizers said.
