St. Peters woman represents Mo. in 'Miss Amazing Pageant' for the disabled St. Peters woman represents Mo. in 'Miss Amazing Pageant' for the disabled

Posted July 31

— It's quite the title to win "Miss Amazing" and an "amazing" St. Peters woman is competing for the title in Chicago as a representative for Missouri.

Stephanee Corcoran, 36, won Missouri Miss Amazing in November 2016. She is headed to Chicago to participate in the National pageant from August 5-7. The pageant showcases girls and women with disabilities and provides opportunities to build confidence and self-esteem in a supportive environment.

Corcoran's favorite part of the pageant is the dance.

"I'm doing a country line dance," said Corcoran.

She's been practicing her routine to Andy Grammer's song, "Honey, I'm Good" for her performance in the pageant.

"Kind of like nervous, exciting moments," Corcoran said.

She never thought she'd win the regional competition, so it's a dream come true for her to compete nationally.

"My mom will have a flip if I were to win again," said Corcoran.

Now that she's competing for a much bigger crown, she picked out a dress to match the prize.

"The pink one is the new one, I just got that out in Festus," said Corcoran.

Corcoran fundraised all the money to get her to Chicago. She is supported by Bethesda Lutheran Communities, a Christian organization that provides homes and services for people with developmental disabilities. Bethesda staff has been helping her prepare for the pageant.
